While shopping on an e-commerce website, the customers are always in a hurry. They don’t have the patience to go through the long list of items to find their desired product. And if they are looking for something specific, in that case, this kind of search can put them off as it takes a lot of time.
To solve this issue and to make their search easier and quicker, we created the AJAX PRODUCT SEARCH PLUGIN TO WOOCOMMERCE.
This useful plugin allows you to add a search box in any widget area. With this plugin installed, on your website, your customers can search for their desired product easily. Even before they finish entering the keywords, the search box allows drop-downs which predict the words while they are typing, thus completing the phrase for them.
It makes their search faster, find results quicker and thus saving their time. All they need to do is just type it in the search box and get the desired results in seconds.
You can download the free version of the plugin from the link below.
Once you have uploaded the plugin, activate your plugin in Plugins Installed plugins. → If it has been activated correctly, plugin control panel is available in the tab AJAX PRODUCT SEARCH FOR WOOCOMMERCE in WordPress dashboard.
Some features of the free version are:
- Option to add a search box in any Widget Area simply by dragging and dropping the Widget. The widget is already created.
- Option to write your own Search Button text.
- Option to set the minimum number of characters required to trigger autosuggest.
