“Most sites today don’t have good search. Commerce Search includes rich stemming dictionaries,” said Nitin Mangtani, Product Manager for Google Enterprise Search Lead. “When you go to an e-commerce site, you might not enter the search term in exactly the way it is described by the retailers search catalog.”
“With Google Commerce Search, customers more easily find the specific products they’re looking for, and we’ve seen dramatic conversion improvement since implementation,” said Jeff Kilmer, COO of Birkenstock USA.
According to Google, footwear maker Birkenstock USA is the first customer officially using Google Commerce Search product. Pricing of Google Commerce Search is starting at $50,000 annually, based on the number of search queries, and number of products/items (SKUs) in data feed.
