The Searchanise add-on integrates CS-Cart with the SaaS-solution of the same name. It adds enhanced instant product search to the storefront by replacing its regular search bar with a special search widget. Shoppers see search results as they type in the search bar, and can quickly review the found products. So, customers can get to the right product way much faster because they don’t even have to finish typing while the preview box forms the first impression of the product.

To set up the Searchanise add-on:

  1. In the administration panel go to Add-ons → Manage add-ons.
  2. Switch to the Browse all available add-ons tab.
  3. Find the Searchanise add-on and click the Install button next to it.
  4. Once the add-on is installed, find it on the list of add-ons and click on its name.
  5. Click the Connect Store to Searchanise button.

Searchanise can search through products, categories and pages (i.e., blog posts) in your store.


Searchanise can find products by product code, name, description, features, and option combination codes.
