on the trigger
Implementing custom search in an online store is a great way to both help customers achieve their goals and improve conversion rates of the store. There are several options to make the searching process for your customers quick and easy, but neither of them is an easy task that can be done with default theme settings.
Predictive search is those suggestions that appear after a customer starts typing their query into a search bar. The results that appear in the dropdown can be product suggestions, store pages, blog articles, or collection — you can choose that depending on your business goals and requirements. One of the greatest advantages of this searching method is that it allows customers to stay on the same page still seeing all the options available.
Voice search is another fast-growing feature that helps customers to find products even quicker. This functionality helps to expose your store to a larger audience and even improve web accessibility if done right.
Enhanced searching functionality can be implemented by editing your theme’s code or with a voice search app from the Shopify App Store. Which way to choose depends on the specifics of your business and the theme you are currently using. However, if you need a custom option that looks and works just the way you want it to, it may be better to opt for coding.
