Ajax Search for WooCommerce

Description

The plugin allows your customers to search products easily and quickly. It will display the results instantly while typing in an inputbox.
You can display the WooCommerce AJAX search form anywhere on the page.

Just enter a few letters and the products which best match your query will appear.
Suggestions can be displayed in a simple form (names of the products only) or in an extended form (includes photos, prices, descriptions, extended information etc.).

Ajax Search for WooCommerce has been designed to enhance user search experience to the maximum.

Free

This plugin is completely free of charge and provides the whole range of functions which are included in some paid plugins.
Initially, I created the plugin for my personal use, but I have decided to include new features and make it available to WordPress community.

Reviews

Лучший

Лучший из всех имеющихся. Только есть косяки. SKU переводится только в ручную в файле JS. Так же у меня сложность на текущей версии, при установке опции “цена”, перестаёт работать AJAX выдача. Жду обновлений от автора. Сам я поучаствовал в переводе на русский.
