When you’re ready, publish your website to make the search option available to your customers. The search icon will appear next to the shopping basket in the header of your website.

How Search Works

The search feature uses text from item and category titles, item descriptions and item variations. When a customer begins typing into the search box, suggestions will automatically appear based on the text they’ve entered.

If no results are found for the search term entered, the results page will suggest other items the customer may be interested in.
