How Does Live Indexing Work?
Let’s Start With the Basics: Indexing
Before getting into Live Indexing, we need to understand what indexing is. Basically, indexing is how your ecommerce site gets updated. When your site “indexes”, it means Searchspring is grabbing product information and pushing changes to the live site.
Live Indexing means this push happens in 7 minutes or less automatically.
Merchants who are eligible for Live Indexing are able to display product updates and price changes, and ensure inventory is up-to-date faster. This is especially helpful during high-volume shopping periods such as a flash sale or Black Friday.
