Have you ever worried that your customers might have trouble finding the items they need? Especially when your store is large with thousands of products. Customers do not always know the exact product name, or spend tens of minutes scrolling through the product page. There are even many products with similar names, making it difficult for customers to find.

It would be great if there is a free PrestaShop search module that could help customers narrow down their search scope scientifically. For example, you have a sports shoe store, you divide them into categories based on manufacturers such as Adidas, Nike, Vans, Puma, etc. What do you think when I say this? Do you have the same idea as me? If a customer wants to buy Adidas shoes, they only need to filter by choosing the "Adidas" category, then search the product they need, search scope will be much narrower. So, filtering and searching product by category is much better, isn't it?

With Search By Category – our free PrestaShop search module that can help you optimize your PrestaShop search bar, making it more versatile. As its name, customers can completely find what they want easier than ever! You can also display products' images, prices, even ratings in Ajax search results. Help customers to flip through some product information, stimulate their curiosity to encourage them to click on the product to see more details, increase purchase rate.
