Choosing the right BigCommerce integration for search

Choosing the right alternative to Klevu for BigCommerce

Let's examine the key features and attributes important to consider when looking at digital commerce search options as alternatives to the Klevu search engine.

A/B testing
A/B testing

Evaluating and improving your e-shop’s performance is vital. A/B testing is fundamental in determining which version of your solution optimally enhances the customer experience, thereby facilitating ongoing improvements to your e-shop.

Klevu provides A/B testing for merchandising and product recommendations, allowing clients to assess various versions of their solutions. However, it lacks offline testing options. Luigi’s Box offers the versatility to conduct tests ranging from specific search queries to extensive modifications in search result scope effortlessly.

Layout customization
Layout customization

Klevu provides the option to customize theme layouts, aligning them with your e-shop’s design – a considerable advantage. However, achieving an exact match may require clients to invest substantial development effort.

A lack of thorough customization could lead to segments of your online store appearing as if they are externally attached systems rather than smoothly integrated parts. On the other hand, Luigi’s Box’s instant search feature effortlessly blends into any website, ensuring perfect integration with a range of design styles.


While cost shouldn’t be the only factor in decision-making, it’s significant to note that the pricing for Klevu’s search and product discovery platform begins at $499 per month, a rate that might be challenging for small businesses or startups.

Conversely, Luigi’s Box provides a customizable pricing model, where clients pay exclusively for the Luigi’s Box products they employ, offering a more flexible approach to pricing.

Multilingual search
Multilingual search

Klevu, operating from Europe, caters to a diverse, multilingual customer base, providing solutions in various European languages using natural language processing and localized machine learning for relevant search outcomes.

Their support for multiple languages enables clients to choose their desired language for customer service and navigating their website. Nonetheless, the level of service Klevu offers varies across different languages, an area where Luigi’s Box excels by offering a more extensive range of multilingual services.
