Configure how your search results are presented to shoppers. The presentation of search results is just as crucial as the contents of the results themselves. Customize search results to minimize friction and maximize conversions.


Results Page Editor

This is where you can customize the Results Page to offer a more personalized experience for your customers.

Layout

The layout options for the results page include dropdown layout, sidebar, or flyout filters. You can preview how the layout will look on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices. Please note that currently, you cannot have different layout selections for different device types.

Page Title

Here you can customize the page title for the results page. By default it will be set to (term) will show the term the user searched for. (count) will show the number of matched search results for the term the user searched for.

General Settings

Column Breakpoints

Here, you can customize the way the results will be displayed on multiple device types, including mobile, tablet, and desktop. Each device type can be adjusted according to your preferences individually.

Add to Cart Button

In this section, you have the option to toggle on an "Add to Cart" button that will appear on the results, providing a seamless way for your customers to add a product to their cart. This feature is valuable for boosting conversions. Additionally, you can customize the text that will appear on these "Add to Cart" buttons to better suit your needs.

Example:


Selectors

If you have a customized theme, you may need to utilize the advanced selectors within the results page settings to ensure the Smart Search displays properly. Rebuy provides default selectors that are configured to work seamlessly with default Shopify themes, so you might not require these advanced selectors. However, if needed, here are the definitions.

We advise previewing Smart Search before making any adjustments to these settings. In most cases, default themes will function properly with the default elements we have configured for you. These selectors should only be necessary if Smart Search is not behaving as expected.

Embedded Element

An Embedded Element refers to content, such as multimedia or interactive components, that is integrated directly into a web page. This is where we embed the search display to.
