As many of you know, our flagship app, Search Magic, has been the go-to advanced search product for scores of Yahoo! Stores for nearly a decade. Built with features found in search apps that cost 25% or more per month, Search Magic not only adds benefits for shoppers but for businesses’ bottom lines.
Two years ago we embarked on a mission to make Search Magic available to merchants on additional platforms. Earlier this year, we made it available to the nearly one-million Shopify merchants via the Shopify App Store. Today, I’m pleased to announce that Search Magic is now available for stores powered by BigCommerce.

If you run your eCommerce store on the BigCommerce platform, we’ve got some exciting news for you today. Just in time for the busy holiday season that starts in just a few weeks, BigCommerce has teamed up with Facebook to make Checkout on Instagram available to all merchants in the United States.
Checkout on Instagram enhances the shopping experience by allowing customers to checkout directly from the Instagram app. Previously, they would be directed back to your eCommerce store to complete the purchase, making for a less than optimal user experience.
Now, purchases can be made quickly and easily, increasing conversion rates, and creating satisfied customers! How does it work?

When it comes to driving sales via search, many store owners just think about organic and paid and don’t consider their own website’s search engine as a source of revenue. Yes, having a good onsite search allows customers to find what they’re looking for, but it’s also a powerful sales and marketing tool.
Store owners who are using their shopping cart’s out-of-the-box search engine are missing out on many advanced features 3rd party search apps, like our own Search Magic, offer. While others who are using 3rd party search apps may not be using them to their advantage.
Today, we’re going to take a look at three features advanced search applications offer that can help you increase conversions.

If you’re an eCommerce store owner, monitoring your Google Merchant Center account for alerts, errors, feed issues, important updates, etc. is something you should be doing on a regular basis. However, we realize that many times emails that are designed to make you aware of potential issues with your feed or specific products may be ignored or put off for a later time.
Even the smallest delay in responding to a critical alert in your Merchant Center account can lead to your product feed being temporarily disabled leading to a loss in sales. Whether you use a 3rd party to manage your online advertising, do it yourself, or just participate in the free Google Shopping program, regular monitoring of your Merchant Center account is crucial.

Keeping up with alerts and notices in your Google Search Console (formerly Google Webmaster Tools) may not be on the top of your list. You may even ignore emails that are designed to make you aware of potential issues with your store or website.
If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. We know of many who tend to put off the occasional visit to the Search Console missing out on crucial information that’s vital to site health, visibility in the SERPs, and more.

Having a powerful site search on your eCommerce store not only helps shoppers find exactly what they’re looking for, but can actually increase order values and provide valuable information on your customer’s search behavior.
By using the out-of-the-box search provided by your shopping cart provider, or a 3rd party application with a limited feature set, you’re leaving money on the table. Your store’s search should be a marketing tool designed and managed to not only pay for itself but generate revenue each time it’s used.
But, it doesn’t need to cost a fortune!

You may have heard of a free time-saving tool we introduced a while back called Magic Edit. This Google Chrome extension was designed to save time while editing an eCommerce store by replacing multiple mouse clicks with quick short-cuts.
Over the past few months, our app development team has been hard at work building a new multiplatform version of Magic Edit that offers even more useful features and is compatible with Yahoo! Store, BigCommerce^, Shopify, and WordPress.

As we ring in the new year, we’re also welcoming our first new product of 2020 – one that is a must for any eCommerce store owner.
First, a little back-story. A few weeks ago during one of our weekly meetings, I got an urgent text message from one of our clients saying their shopping cart wasn’t loading.
Sure enough, it wasn’t. However, other store’s carts on the same platform were functioning normally. We paused our meeting and began to dig into the root cause of the issue.
