Search: Algolia Search

Note: Algolia Instant Search for Magento is FREE, but you do need an Algolia account to use the extension. We have a FREE Hacker Plan available for stores with smaller data sets. Larger stores can choose from several affordable paid subscriptions to best fit their needs. Please see our pricing page for details.


Don’t make your customers dig to find the products they want to buy. Deliver instant, relevant results with Algolia's find-as-you-type e-commerce search. This extension has been designed to refresh search results in real time (under 10ms on average); results are refined and updated based on each new keystroke. With this enhanced e-commerce search experience, Algolia users see increased user engagement, conversion rates and total revenue. Proudly serving 1200+ customers in 100+ countries.

Features include:

• Product and category autocomplete with typo tolerance
• Instant & faceted search
• Custom result ranking and smart highlighting
• 100% customizable UI
• Catalog auto-sync with real-time indexing
• Advanced analytics
• Geo-search and multilingual store support
• Data can be hosted in one of our 30 datacenters (14 regions)
• 99.99% SLA
• REST and JSON developer-friendly API


With Algolia's as-you-type search functionality, you can serve relevant content from the first keystroke. Customers no longer have to think about how to search and can instead focus on buying the products they find.

• Product & Category Autocomplete
Offer end users immediate access to your whole catalog from the dropdown menu, whatever the number of categories or attributes.

• Instant & Faceted Search
Update your search results page, navigation and pagination in real time, with each keystroke.

• Relevance
Increase customer satisfaction by serving relevant results. If a user can't find a product, they won't buy it! Algolia returns relevant results from the first keystroke thanks a unique piece of technology that allows textual relevance to be blended with business metrics: number of sales, featured products etc.

• Instant Faceting
Provide as-you-type facet filters, updated at each keystroke. Refine your results using facets, sliders and multi-level (hierarchical) categories.

• Speed
Return search results in milliseconds.

• Typo Tolerance
Don't let spelling mistakes prevent your users from finding the products they are looking for. We also handle `concatenation` and `multiple words synonyms'.

• Catalog Auto-Sync
Benefit from real-time indexing that instantly captures product additions, price changes, etc. without affecting server performance.

• Autocompletion Menu
Implement a rich Amazon-like autocompletion menu in no time.

• Analytics
Get valuable insight into how your customers are searching and what they're searching for from one central dashboard.

• Distributed Search Network (DSN)
Replicate your data across any of the 14 data centers in our DSN, and your search queries will be directed to the closest center for the fastest results.

• Open Source
Customize your search however you want! Algolia is open-source and available on GitHub.
