A big hello from the team, and thanks for checking us out!

We understand the challenges of the modern retailer, and have developed Motive Commerce Search – a feature-packed, lightning-fast product search plugin for WooCommerce – to empower your shop’s growth.

We’re on a mission to democratise technology, and want every shop to have access to advanced product search. That means advanced filters, live search suggestions and the same tools used by the biggest brands.

You also get access to the Motive Playboard; the backend of your search where you can do things like tweak results for specific searches, customise how filters are displayed, redirect shoppers to non-product pages and align your site search with your business and marketing goals.

On top of all that, Motive Commerce Search for WooCommerce gives you:

✅ Unmatched search relevancy

  • Mobile version included → Shoppers can search on any device without you paying more. Included in all plans.


At Motive, we do things differently from other search plugins. Simply put, we don’t ask you to collect your customers’ data, and we don’t use that data to serve your competitors.
We believe in creating ethical search that builds trust. That’s why Motive Commerce Search helps you:

  • Boost revenue: Businesses that generate trust are 1.6x more likely to boost revenue and EBIT growth rates by 10% or more (Source: McKinsey)

  • Respect customer data: A majority of consumers now look specifically for businesses that have a reputation for protecting their data. (Source: McKinsey)

  • 74% of consumers believe online tracking practices are intrusive.
  • 80% of consumers are aware online shops track and use their online browsing history.

Muy buen buscador y grandes profesionales detrás que te ayudan en todo. Yo estoy encantada, puedes analizar las búsquedas que has tenido con y sin resultado y te da muchas opciones para dirigir las búsquedas que hace el cliente.

We all know that the native search experience for WooCommerce should be better (to put it kindly 🤗), although we also know how important it is for an online store. Fortunately this service has achieved a high quality and effortless integration for the user. You activate the plugin, put your API key (it is a paid service, you know) and they take care of indexing all the content of your store. I have to admit that before starting the free trial period I was skeptical (my site is made with a custom theme), but in a few minutes the plugin manages to perfectly index the content of your store, including attributes, tags and categories. Thanks to the stats panel you get valuable information about the searches in your online store and you can also customize the behavior of the results from the user area in Motive. If your store really requires continuous searches or has a lot of products, it is a highly recommended tool that is worth the cost.

Gracias a Motive he conseguido que la tiendas de todos mis clientes mejoren no solo en UX, que los clientes lo agradecen, sino también por otras funcionalidades como el tema de los sinónimos, las reglas de negocio para orientar los resultados a los deseos de la empresa, etc...
