How to set products to show on Recommendation section

How to set up Recommendation 1, Recommendation 2, Recommendation 3, Recommendation 4

There are two ways to set which products are shown on the Recommendation section: automatically and manually

Specify related products automatically

Shopify has recommendation logic that can auto-display related products based on:

  • Purchase history: Products that have historically been purchased together.
  • Product description: Products with similar descriptions.
  • Related collections: Products from collections that the current product is part of.

For example, I created a Collection “Under 500$” with products in the screenshot

When customers visit “Duo Ring” belonging to the Collection “Under 500$”, they will see other products in the Collection “Under 500$”

Specify related products manually

You can set related products manually by using a free app named Shopify Search & Discovery

  • Install the app to your Shopify admin dashboard
  • Select “Recommendations” > “Add recommendations”

Select the product you’d like to add recommendations to & Select products that are good alternatives to the original product.

Customers will see manually added related products & auto-generated related products under the original product

How to set up Recommendation 5

Product Recommendations 5 is a unique feature that fetches related products based on the Product Type or Product Vendor.

Step 1: Click on ‘Add section’ and insert ‘Recommendation 5’.

Step 2: Click on ‘Product Settings’, where you can choose to fetch related products based on Product Type or Vendor.

Step 3: Return to your Shopify, then click on ‘Products’ -> ‘Edit a Product’, where you will add the Product Type and Vendor for the product.

At this point, when you visit a product, other products with the same Vendor or Product Type will be displayed.
