How Does SearchSpring Integrate Onto a Store?

Written by: // September 13, 2018

What shopping carts does SearchSpring work on?

SearchSpring works with all shopping cart platforms.

Is there a plugin or 1-click install for my shopping cart?

SearchSpring is not a plugin or a 1-click install, although we sometimes use plugins (such as on Magento, BigCommerce and Shopify) to make integration easier.

Because each store is unique, SearchSpring is customized for every store that wants our solution. This allows us to ensure the product works perfectly, and matches your design and business logic.

What does this entail, and how long does it take?

  • Data audit 3-4 days
    We review your data to understand what and where it is
  • Functional requirements 2-3 days
    Work with you to ensure we understand exactly what features you want, where you want them, and understand you aesthetic design requirements
  • Data setup 1 week
    We get your data into our databases
  • Initial design 2 weeks
    Designing various elements (autocomplete, facet groups, fonts, etc.) to match your design
  • Revisions 3-4 days
    We check with you to make sure we’re on the same page
  • Go live 1 day
  • Total time 5-6 weeks

5 to 6 weeks? That’s a lot of time.

It is a lot of time, but it’s worth it to get it right. This saves you time and frustration down the road since we debug before you go live.

If you’ve ever used a plugin search solution, you know how much troubleshooting is required.
