Need WooCommerce Live Search or WooCommerce Ajax Search?
Our WooCommerce Live Search plugin adds real time live search capabilities to your online store. Your shoppers can search by product title, category, tags, and product SKU to find exactly what they’re looking for fast.
Simple start typing into the search box and possible matches start to appear below the search box. Clicking on a result can take your shopper directly to related page.
The plugin works with any standard WordPress search form, including most theme search forms and widgets. When configuring the plugin you control what aspects of your products are searchable. See the settings page screenshot to view the available options.
WooCommerce Live Search also searches your regular posts and pages, so your site gains new functionality overall. And you can optionally enable an option to include thumbnail images in the results for posts, pages, product, and product categories.
And you can optionally split search phrases into words where each word is queried for matches. So for example a search for “UPS Shipping” searches “UPS” and “Shipping separately.
