Hey guys, we launched our website Umbrella Store a week ago. It uses Algolia as our superfast search solution
We looked into other solutions like Klevu, Unbxd, Nextopia, SLI etc and found that we just needed something fast, developer friendly and easily customisable, and we found Algolia!
We integrated Wordpress into our Magento store, and we’ve added the blogs as searchable pages within the main instantsearch box. In the future we might go down the path of displaying all the products in a category page style list as soon as people start typing. Right now we’re just collecting some user data.
Would be great to speak to some other Magento store owners about how their Algolia implementation is going. There’s lots of cool things we’ve added, like searching by SKU for our internal staff which makes things easier too.
I’m the product manager and we’re a small family business in the UK. Happy to chat if you want to know more!
