Implementing a Smart Product Search app

In the fast-paced world of e-commerce, providing customers with an efficient and user-friendly search experience is paramount. A Smart Product Search app serves as a powerful tool for achieving this goal. This article outlines a step-by-step guide to installing and configuring an advanced plugin that supports detailed filtering and sorting options, facilitating a seamless shopping experience for your customers.


The Smart Product Search app is specifically designed for seamless integration with themes like Nova2023, Night, Sweet, Moring, Bamboo, and Moon. To leverage its full potential, ensure your theme is upgraded to the latest version.

The Smart Product Search app can be integrated into your online store through three different approaches, catering to diverse operational preferences:

1. Via the App Store:

  • From your Shoplazza Admin > Apps, click Visit App Store.
  • Search for Smart Product Search   in the search box and click Add app to add it to your store.

2. Through menu navigation settings:

  • In the Shoplazza admin, click on Online Store, then Navigation.
  • Click the installation button in the search filter section for direct access to the plugin installation page.

3. Via theme customization:

  • Navigate your Shoplazza admin, select Online Store, click on Theme, then Customize.
    • Ensure your theme is up to date.

  • Use the theme editor's page switcher to go to the Search page and click on the Search Result card.

  • Select Install in the Search results card to proceed to the App store for installation.

Adding the Application

After navigating to the application installation page, click Add App then Install app to finalize the setup.

Configuring filters

After installing the app, customize your search results page filters for a tailored search experience:

1. Adding filter dimensions: Click Add Filter Dimension from the sidebar to customize your search filters. This feature accommodates a variety of filter types:

  • Vendor, and Price: These filters automatically populate options based on your existing product data, simplifying setup.
  • Variants, Labels, and Meta Fields: For these filters, you'll manually select or input the options you want available to your customers. This allows for a tailored search experience that matches your inventory and categorization.

2. Configuring specific filters: When setting up label-based filters, simply click on the Select product label button. This allows you to search and choose the tags that will serve as filter options, streamlining the process for defining precise filtering.

3. Variant filter: To set up a Variant as a filter, click on the product variant dropdown box to search and select the desired variant for use as filter options. Upon selection, all associated values of the chosen variant will be showcased as filtering options.


A filter dimension can contain only one variant, and a selected variant cannot be reused.

4. Meta field filter: To configure a Meta field as a filter, access the meta fields dropdown box, then search for and select the meta fields you want to use. Once a meta field is selected, its values will be presented as filtering options.


Support is currently limited to specific types of meta fields, including Appearance, Size, Volume, Weight, and Single-line Text Meta Field. Only one selection is permitted per filter dimension, and a meta field previously selected for a filter dimension cannot be chosen again.

5. Customize filter titles: Configure the titles for all filter dimensions, and the configured titles will be displayed on the storefront.

  • Activate plugin: Enable the Apply to Store switch after configuration to activate the plugin on your store.

Setting up Sorting Options

Customize sorting conditions to refine the shopping experience. Here’s how you can adjust these settings:

1. Default sorting condition: When the Apply to Store switch is activated, 'Recommend' is established as the unchangeable primary sorting option and remains non-removable from the list.

2. Customizable sorting types: You have the flexibility to tailor the order and type of sorting conditions based on your store's needs. The available sorting options include:

  • Newest in
  • Price High to Low
  • Price Low to High
  • Sales High to Low
  • Most Add to Cart
  • Most Views
  • Sales Low to High
  • Product Names from A to Z
  • Product Names from Z-A
