The user experience of your B2B eCommerce website is often determined by the quality of your search experience. Handshake’s B2B eCommerce site search is simple, intuitive and similar to popular B2C eCommerce interfaces, making it easy for even your least tech-savvy customer to place orders with no training.

  • Search by product name, SKU, UPC and more

  • Custom support for boosting / burying particular product results and tweaking the search results algorithm is available

Display results in the order you prefer, based on:

  • Your customer's most recent ordered items
  • Your customer’s recent search history
  • Your top-selling items

Auto-complete/type ahead functionality: with Handshake, your B2B customers will utilize a familiar eCommerce search bar to search your catalog by SKU, product name, or product attributes like color, size, and more. Once your buyers input text in the search bar, results will automatically populate for their convenience.

Typo-tolerance: our search also catch typos or associated words, so you can rest assured that your buyers will find what they’re looking for. In the example below, even though the buyer misspells the word “chicken,” the desired search results still display.

  • Your customer's order history
  • Your customer’s search history
  • Your top-selling items
  • Products on current promotion

With Handshake’s B2B eCommerce search features, you have control over the way you present your catalog and can get more of your products in front of your B2B buyers.
