Search tips

There are multiple search options available on the e-commerce site. The simplest method is the search field accessed using the navigation menu.

 

Search without prefix

If you search without a prefix, at least one of the entered search terms must appear in the results for the search to be successful; you could say it represents "OR". If only one search term is entered, this is regarded as "AND", i.e. the term must feature in the searched item.

CAT Displays items that contain the word cat.

CAT DOG Displays items that contain the words CAT or DOG.

 

Search with quotation marks

Searches for hits with words in that exact order.

 

"BLACK CAT" The results must contain the string "black cat" in that order.

 

Search with the plus sign (+)

The stated order or the search string must feature among the returned hits. You could say that the + sign represents "AND".

 

+CAT The results must contain the word cat.

+"BLACK CAT" The results must contain the string "black cat" in that order.

 

Search with the minus sign (-)

The stated word or the search string will be excluded from any returned hits. You could say that the - sign represents "NOT".

 

-CAT The results will not contain the word cat.

-"BLACK CAT" The results will not contain the string "black cat" in that order.

 

Search with a wildcard (?,*)

? replaces a character.

* replaces a sequence of characters.

 

C?T Matches e.g. cot, cat.

C*T Matches e.g. cot, cat, count, concert.

 

Search with lower and upper case letters

The use of lower or upper case letters will not affect the search results.
