Hi All,

Love Algolia.

But, this has been a confusing experience getting setup with WooCommerce. Doing some digging, there seemed to be some sort of dedicated plugin for WC in 2016, the Docs here just say “Coming Soon”. https://community.algolia.com/woocommerce/.

There’s a blog post saying:

We haven’t forgotten about you, WooCommerce users! If you are a WooCommerce user, we’ve got you covered. We’re about to release an extension to this plugin, so stay tuned for the Search by Algolia for WooCommerce plugin by subscribing here (We will only send you 1 email to inform you of the release) We wanted to mention beta testers and developers without whom this plugin wouldn’t be out yet!

However there is still docs here: https://community.algolia.com/woocommerce/quick-start.html

And I do not get the screenshot found here:

My options are just:

  • Autocomplete
  • Search Page
  • Settings

I have selected Use Algolia with InstantSearch and my search page out of the box I was able to remove some of the default facets ( I only want to search by products for example ) so I got rid of the posts but I’d really value an out of the box solution similar to:

At least some pointers on how to get there would be great.

Hey there, thanks for reaching out.

The WooCommerce plugin we have is running in private Beta since a while.

However we should have some news pretty soon.

We will make an announcement in the upcoming weeks.

Please stay tuned.

Any news on this? Would really love to use Algolia for a new Woocommerce store I am setting up. Is there any way to be part of the Beta program? Would love to have access to the plugin if at all possible. My coworker uses you guys to index some stuff for an app and hoping to tie into what he already has.
