Last week this highly requested feature was released!
It gave store owners the ability to show their customers what other products they had to offer as seen in the image below.
Earlier this week I was asked how the related products were selected and I’d like to share the answer with you all.
How does it work?
The algorithm for ranking related products is based on the collections associated with the product being viewed.
For Example: Let’s say you’re viewing a pair of jeans that belong to the following collections.
A pair of jeans that belong to all three collections will be ranked as #1 on the related products widget.
A shirt that belongs to two of the collections will be ranked as #2 on the related products widget.
A pair of sneakers that belongs to one of the collections will be ranked at #3 on the related products widget.
Again, this is based on the item that is being viewed.
For instructions on how to add the widget, follow the steps in this article .
