What is Search Relevance

Search Relevance replaces the default OpenCart search with a much better search that gives results sorted by relevance.

Search Relevance replaces the default OpenCart search engine with a more powerful search engine with lots of features and configurable options.
You'll get better, relevant search results. This means that customers of your shop will find what they are really looking for.
