In today’s fast-paced e-commerce world, customers expect a seamless and efficient shopping experience. Finding the desired products quickly and easily is crucial for customer satisfaction and conversion rates. Salesforce B2C Commerce Cloud understands this, and that’s why it offers robust Advanced Search capabilities to enhance product discoverability and empower your customers on their shopping journey. Let’s explore how B2C Commerce Cloud’s search functionality helps customers find what they need, ultimately leading to a more enjoyable and successful shopping experience. 

The Challenge of Basic Search 

Traditional e-commerce search functionalities may rely solely on keyword matching. This can be limiting for customers, especially when searching for specific product attributes or variations. For example, a customer searching for “running shoes” might be overwhelmed by a vast selection with no way to filter by brand, size, or color. 

Salesforce B2C Commerce Cloud: Advanced Search for Refined Results 

Salesforce B2C Commerce Cloud’s Advanced Search goes beyond basic keyword matching and empowers customers with a variety of filtering options to refine their search results. Here’s how: 

  • Faceted Search: Customers can filter products based on various attributes like category, brand, color, size, price range, and more. This allows them to narrow down their search to products that meet their specific needs and preferences. 
  • Search by Attribute: B2C Commerce Cloud allows you to define custom product attributes beyond basic categories. This empowers customers to search for specific features like “waterproof” or “wireless” when looking for products. 
  • Search Suggestions: As customers type their search queries, B2C Commerce Cloud provides real-time suggestions and auto-complete functionality. This helps them refine their search terms and discover relevant products more efficiently. 
  • Search Ranking Optimization: B2C Commerce Cloud provides tools to optimize product search ranking based on factors like relevance, popularity, and customer reviews. This ensures that the most relevant products appear at the top of the search results, saving customers time and frustration.
