Customers should be able to find the products they want to purchase. The less effort they take the more satisfied with the provided by online merchants services they are.


Magento is doubtfully one of the best solutions on the ecommerce market. And, its native search is good, however, it lacks advanced functionality. As Magento developers we have played around with a lot of solutions aimed to improve Magento search.


And here are the results of our work (not to mention implemented projects ;) ): the article "How to improve Magento online store search". Hope you will enjoy reading it  :)

Make sure that simple products used for configurables and which don't exist by themselves, are not shown in search results. Make sure search works with typos and shortenings.  I'd suggest using Elastic search and if you need help with implementation I'd recomment Magento developers from MavenEcommerce.

Magento is the best solution for e-commerce as it is very flexible and has many plugins that you can easily use. I am the owner of the sportswear e-commerce site and I'm really satisfied that we moved our e-store into Magento. When we first investigated this platform, there were many resources I considered, as I needed to make a smart and right decision form my store. So here https://forbytes.com...o-development/   I have found the most comprehensive info about this e-commerce platform, hope it will help you too.

Totally agree that Magento is one of the best eCommerce solutions. It's one of the most popular for sure. Nowadays, custom Magento development is a very demanded service though it's not always easy to find decent Magento developers, especially the profitable ones. Fortunately, if you can't find the right candidate locally, you can always use outstaffing model and get yourself a great developer, let's say, from Ukraine. Thus, there's always a choice and you can totally find the perfect match for the job.

While potential buyers often find the right product right from Google search, they also often browse their favorite online stores using search and filter. So it's definitely one of the most important features. Any experienced Magento developer should be able to improve this feature either using some extensions or manually by building one from scratch. In case you need to hire one, we have a list of possible candidates here no matter what kind of project you have.
