Featured Search Extension

View Mageplaza Search Extension on actual Magento 2 stores


When customers land on your store, they realize that there are thousands of products there. Searching is the only way to find any particular product in no time. By default, Magento 2 offers a search bar at the top right corner of your store. When they search using the default search bar, it will require an accurate search and then redirects them to another page to show results. But if your customers have a lot to search and shop, it will cost them a lot of time and effort. Ultimately, it serves bad shopping experience to your customers.


Mageplaza Magento 2 Search extension is the perfect solution that will eliminate all Magento 2 default searching weaknesses. Customers will see the search result instantly, with no delay after entering the keywords through the Search Autocomplete feature so that they can search quickly and save more time.

Moreover, Magento 2 Search module by Mageplaza is also the best choice for a large-scale E-commerce store with an enormous number of products because this extension supports more than a million SKUs for the quickly searching system.

Promoting your products seems easier than ever by customizing the search results with ease. You can set up the maximum results and details such as product description, price, and images to be shown in the popup.

If you are finding a module that will make your ecommerce website’s search tool more optimized and flexible as well as get more satisfied customers and more sales, Magento 2 Ajax Search extension will be the best choice for you.

Magento 2 Search Extension Highlight Features

Mageplaza Magento 2 Search extension allows customers to see the searching result immediately after they start typing only the first letter of the keywords in the search box. The search result will be shown as a drop-down list that includes all necessary information about each suggested product such as image, product name, price and short description. This feature helps customers find the preferred product quicker and better in an enhanced internal search engine; therefore, therefore the conversion rate will increase significantly.

Ajax Search supports up to 10,000 SKUs

Magento 2 Ajax Search extension supports search by SKU option with up to 10,000 SKUs. If your Magento store is big and has up to 10,000 items, Mageplaza Advanced Search will be the best choice.

There are 3 types of Reindex Search Database for you to choose from: After Product Save (if less than 3,000 SKUs), Cronjob (if more than 3,000 SKUs), Manually (if you want to manually update after each change).

Flexible Search configuration options

Magento 2 Search extension allows admins to show or hide images and the price of each product in the search result.

With the default Magento 2, customer have to navigate the product page to see the product description. Now they can see the necessary information right on the search result. Thus, shoppers can make decisions more quickly and precisely.

Maximum search result shown

In the backend, it is easy to configure the number of search results that will be shown in the box. As usual, you can set the number to 10, which means that there are 10 items that match the keywords that will be displayed in the list with the short necessary information. Depending on your design, you should choose a suitable number of search results.

Excellent! Fast! Returns Accurate and Great Looking Results!

This extension is easy to install and really works well. Results are returned very quickly and accurately. We had another extension but it did not have the accuracy for multiple word phrases that this one does. Mageplaza Ajax Search made a world of difference for our store and our customers. Thank you!

Use Cases of Magento 2 Search Extension

Use case 1: Allow buyers to search and see results immediately in the search box

Business goals:

  • Let users see the search results instantly when they type in letters, which helps them find products better.

Default Magento technical limitations:

  • The default search bar does show results, but lacks the number of items to show and can't display description.


  • Magento 2 Search extension displays the search results as a drop-down list with information of the product such as image, name, price, and short description.
  • Let you configure the maximum number of search results to show on your ecommerce website.

Use case 2: Let customers search by categories

Business goals:

  • Allow buyers to search by both the product and category name.

Default Magento technical limitations:

  • You simply can't enable the category search option with a default Magento store.


  • You can enable Search By Category in the Magento 2 Search extension and customers can then select the category in a dropbox right next to the search bar.

Use case 3: Configure the search result suggestions to show bestseller products

Business goals:

  • Display best selling items based on the search phrases of consumers.

Default Magento technical limitations:

  • It's impossible to adjust the search results that a customer will see in the search box.


  • Provide Search Suggestion that lets you sort the search results by Bestsellers, New Products, or Most Viewed Products.

Use case 4: Show or hide prices and images of each product in the search results

Business goals:

  • Flexibly configure the search results to display prices, images, and short descriptions or not.

Default Magento technical limitations:

  • There's no way for you to select which type of information to show in the search results with a default Magento store.


  • With Information Display of the Magento 2 Search extension, you can select the type of information to show or hide for a product's search result.
  • For example, if you feel like the pricing is not the best selling point of your items, you can hide it from the search box and let the image and description influence the consumers.

Use case 5: Autocomplete search phrases of consumers

Business goals:

  • Complete the keywords that consumers enter to show relevant search results.

Default Magento technical limitations:

  • A default Magento store can't autocomplete the keywords that users type in.
