AI Search and Discovery by Sajari

Increase revenue through better on-site search and discovery. Sajari makes it easy to put the right product in front of your customer.

Installation

1. Add the Sajari app to your store

Head over to the Shopify App store and install the Sajari ‑ AI Search & Discovery app.

2. Create a Sajari account

Next up you will need to create a Sajari account if you don't already have one. Sign up via Google or pick a user name and password.

To use AI Search and Discovery by Sajari with Shopify you will need a paid or trial plan. For more information on the 14-day free trial and pricing, see the pricing page.

3. Create a Sajari collection

A collection in Sajari, not to be confused with Shopify collections, stores all the product information required to create a great search. Sajari will suggest a name based on your store name, but feel free to change it.

4. Indexing your products

Kick back and relax. Sajari will index your products in the background. This initial index will take about 30 seconds, but depending on the number of products in your store, Sajari will continue the indexing process in the background.

5. Integrating the Search UI

After the initial index is complete, you will land on the dashboard. Once your search is up and running, the dashboard will display search analytics and the most popular search terms, helping you get a better understanding what your customers are looking for.

Now it's time to install the search UI into your store. Click in the Shopify link at the bottom of the left-hand navigation.

Search UI Builder

This is the Search UI Builder. On the left you have a number of configuration options to adjust the filters and the look and feel of your search UI. On the right is a live preview, showing your products. Go and try out some the filters and the search.

The font style and colour of the filters and search results will automatically adapt to your store styles once installed.

Once you are happy with the search UI, click the Install button in the bottom left. Follow the installation instructions displayed in app, they are tailored to your configuration.

If you are installing Sajari into a live store, we recommend that you duplicate the active theme and implement the app on a copy first. That way you can ensure everything is perfect before you push it live.

🎉 Congratulations, you are done!

Creating a custom search UI

To create a custom search experience, use the Sajari React SDK. It does require development experience and the implementation time is take longer, but it enables you to create a completely unique search UI.

The React SDK comes with many of the components available in the Search interface builder, but also allows you to build your own components and leverage Hooks to integrate the search.
