Product Merchandising in Wix stores

Note

To fine-tune Searchanise, go to the Wix admin panel, Apps > Searchanise. The app cannot be modified via Wix editor yet.

Product Merchandising is a feature that allows you to promote specific products for search queries using particular rules.

Merchandising ranking options

By default, all products have the No option.
