Description of the services required:

We would like to have our search auto complete.

This is a forum with instructions of how to get this done:

https://ecommerce.shopify.com/c/ecommerce-design/t/diy-implementing-autocomplete-with-search-144104

 

We want the search to work just like it does on this site:

http://www.flipsidegaming.com/

Here are the main features we want; they are all features that the example site has.  We want it to work exactly like the example site:

  1. Autocomplete after 3 characters
  2. Showing the product name and picture in the search drop down
  3. When you click on the autocompleted search guess, it should bring you directly to the product page
  4. If the customer clicks search, or presses enter without selecting one of the autocompleted products it should go to the normal search page

 

Please supply a portfolio, and some referrals with your quote, Thank you!

Just so you know as I have done this exact tweak before this is only Autocomplete... it is not making suggestions. Spellings have to be 100% to match and it does not recommend anything to the user to be honest.

Could happily put this in for $50

so you did something like this?

making sugestions is crucial.  The whole point of autocomlete is to help consumers aviod searches with no results.

It's a nominclature problem. Autocomplete generally is just that.. auto completing based on the exact letters typed.

Autosuggestion which I think your looking for does analysis on the words... Semantics.. tags... Previous searchers etc and makes suggestions on what should be shown based on what they type...

If you want autosuggestion you want to use a search app from the app gallery
