Introducing Rebuy Smart Search™: Personalized AI Site Search & Discovery for Shopify

Rebuy Smart Search is here — fast, flexible, and accurate AI-powered site search and discovery for Shopify & Shopify Plus.

Imagine this: You have a brick-and-mortar store, but when customers walk in, they can't find what they're looking for. They grow frustrated and eventually leave empty-handed.

This scenario is all too common in the online world, where poor search functionality (or no search functionality at all) leads to lost sales and frustrated customers.

Whether you’re an Enterprise player or a small business owner, you know how important it is to provide a seamless shopping experience for your customers. Yet, existing AI search solutions often fall short, leaving you feeling boxed-in and at the mercy of cookie-cutter options that just aren’t scalable.

Do these challenges sound familiar?

  • You don't have the budget (or the bandwidth). Your current solution is complicated, expensive, and API only, meaning there’s no out-of-the-box option and it’s up to you to build the UI (user interface).
  • Goals get harder. Your want to reduce your tech stack and associated costs, but adding a single-function search-and-filter app makes that harder to achieve.
  • You sacrifice speed and control. Your current solution is too slow, too limited, and requires a third party (maybe a freelancer or dev agency) to customize your search solution so it works the way you want.

If so, keep reading, and get ready to upgrade your store’s shopping experience with AI-powered search and discovery built for Shopify & Shopify Plus.

Your Search For AI Search Is Over

AI search can boost your bottom line. What’s more, consumer loyalty skews sharply toward brands offering site search capabilities. Consider these eye-opening numbers:

  • Search is nearly twice as effective at producing conversions.
  • The average revenue from site search was significantly higher than regular users.
  • 75% of customers say they are less loyal to a brand when it's hard to find what they want on a website.

AI search and discovery plays a crucial role in delivering a seamless shopping experience and building customer loyalty. And it’s likely to become a bigger part of the online shopping experience going forward. Meanwhile, poor search experiences can lead to decreased customer retention and conversion rates.

To help you overcome these challenges and capitalize on this emerging revenue channel, we're thrilled to announce the launch of our newest product, Rebuy Smart Search for Shopify. Now, you can build personalized product search and discovery experiences for every shopper without all the extra work.

  • Autocomplete: Accelerate sales with autocomplete, proven to boost conversions by up to 24%.
  • Product & Collection Matching: Every site search returns matching products as well as matching collections to encourage product discovery.

  • Flexible Promotion: Highlight new releases, overstock items, sale items, or specific vendors in seconds.

🔀 Keyword Redirects

What if a shopper enters a search term that doesn’t match one of your products? Rebuy Smart Search allows you to redirect any keyword (or keyword group) to any URL you choose. Use Keyword Redirects to address search terms in the No Results report when there are no products to connect. This highly-requested feature means you improve user experience, retain more search traffic, and ensure users always land on the right page.

  • Redirect Shoppers: Direct shopper traffic to specific pages on your site based on specific keywords.
  • Focus on Retention: Retain more site visitors by guiding them to a page of your choice.
  • Use Cases:
    • You’re running a promotion with Red Bull. When a customer searches "Red Bull," you can configure that search term to link to a promotional landing page instead of the standard search results page.
    • Visitors keep searching for Contact Us, so you link that search term to your Contact or About Us page.
    • You notice shoppers entering "returns" in the search field, so you link that term to your return policy.

Social proof sells. That’s why we developed product ratings for Rebuy Smart Search. Let’s say you want to display product ratings when a shopper searches your site. With Smart Search, you can show ratings on the Search Results Page, on both the Search Results Page and in the Quick View, or not at all. You get to choose based on your unique business needs.

  • Star Ratings That Sell: When Product Ratings are enabled, the average star rating is displayed next to each product.
  • Social Proof Where You Want It: Display star ratings in both Quick View and Search Results pages.
