FAQ

Frequently asked questions

If you have any questions not answered in the FAQ section, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Is analytics always required at the start?

Analytics is a mandatory part of each of our services, it doesn’t necessarily have to be the beginning, but it’s ideal if analytics precedes the rest by at least a couple of weeks. It shouldn’t happen that you have a search, product listing, or recommender from us, but you don’t have analytics.

Can the products be implemented separately?

At each crossroad, you make a new decision. You can do the Analytics through feeds and implement Search on the backend later.

Does Luigi's Box offer a free trial?

Yes, Luigi’s Box offers a 30-day free trial for self-service clients for Search and Analytics. During 30 days, you can monitor, for example, searches without results, most searched queries on your website, or lost opportunities due to search imperfections.

Can I cancel my account at any time?

Yes, for sure. Once you see no added value from Luigi’s Box features, you can simply uninstall the application from your online store or send us a cancellation request to our email support@luigisbox.com.
