Instant product search as you type

With Algolia's "find as you type" instant product search, customers can think less about how to search and more about what they find. Faceting (layered navigation) refinement of search results are also powered by Algolia and update in real time just like search queries. Results are retrieved from Algolia's servers, reducing response times and load on Magento.

Flexible search options

Each site has different requirements for search, so the Fontis Algolia extension allows you to configure a wide range of options for indexing and customer presentation. Exclude categories, add complex and dynamic content like review ratings to search results, adjust match thresholds, and much more.

Customisable frontend

Search result pages are constructed client-side, taking full advantage of Algolia's exceptionally fast results. Templates are fully customisable, allowing complete customisation and making it easy to match the design of category and Magento's default results pages. The Fontis Algolia extension's results page is fully integrated with the rest of your site, using the same structure and styling as other pages while delivering a superior search experience powered by Algolia.
