Automatic Related Products

Show related products viewed or purchased together with a specific store item. Let customers easily find relevant products popular among store visitors and raise the number of spontaneous purchases.

  • Smart mechanism for automatic product relation
  • Use flexible conditions to determine products display
  • Set parameters for accurate stats collecting
  • Show related products based on views or purchases
  • Hide out of stock products

With the extension you'll be able to display special blocks with cross-sells, up-sells and related items based on customer purchase behavior. A specially developed smart algorithm automatically shows necessary items in each particular block.


General Settings

To get the access to the 'Automatic Related Products' settings please go to: System → Configuration → Automatic Related products

Query Limit - The option lets you indicate the maximal number of queries (product views and purchases) for a specific time period basing on which the module will gather statistical data and display related, up-selling and cross-selling products.

Exclude Products by Category - Specify coma separated category IDs to exclude products assigned to these categories from display.


Up-sells Settings

The Up-sells block is displayed on a product page.

Enabled - The option turns on/off the display of up-selling products.

  • Only (only items from the same category with the main product will be displayed);
  • Exclude from result (products from the same category with the main product will be excluded);

Brand condition - Choose whether to select products of any brand or of the same brand with the chosen product.

Price condition - Price condition defines if auto-generated products can have any price or the same price with the main product. It also possible to choose higher or lower price.
