Quick Start on Shopify

1. Installation

You can add our app to your store through the Shopify App Store. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to the Shopify App Store.
  2. Go to the Smart Search & Filter app listing page.
  3. Click the Add app button.
  4. In your Shopify admin, click Install app to authorize the use of the app.

After the app is installed, the indexation starts to import search data into it. It takes some time. You can view and manage our app using the Smart Search & Filter control panel, located in the Shopify admin panel > Apps > Smart Search & Filter. In the sidebar of the control panel, you will see the progress of the indexation.

2. Checking if the app working

Once the indexation is complete, you can check how it works. See the instructions on how to do so here.

3. Adjusting the Instant Search Widget

3.1. Adjusting content

You can think up what data to display or hide in the widget and change its default content. It is possible to hide the widget sections: pages, categories, products, or suggestions. It is also possible to hide product prices or SKUs. See the instructions on how to do so here.

3.2. Adjusting look and feel

You can choose either a single-column or multi-column widget’s template in the Smart Search & Filter control panel > Instant search widget section > Colors tab.

4. Adjusting the Search Results Widget

4.1. Adjusting content

As well as in the Instant Search Widget, you can adjust what data to show in the Search Results Widget. See the instructions on how to do so here.

4.2. Adjusting look and feel

By default. it is set the up-to-date template. We recommend you use it, changing only its colors to suit your store style guide. See the instructions on how to change colors here.

5. Adjusting Filters

There are default filters with the most common attributes like price, vendor (brand), product type, availability, collection, etc. You can adjust them or add new ones. See the instructions on how to do so here.

6. Setting up Filters on collections


The Filters on collections feature is available on the PRO subscription plan starting with 5000 products as well as on the Advanced subscription plan.

The Filters on collections feature is not set up automatically after installing the app. You should do that by yourself to use the app’s Filters on collection pages.

7. Going further

The Instant Search Widget and Search Results Widget supply the main functionality of our app. But you can also try to use Upsell & Cross sell widgets or merchandising rules to promote products in search results.
