Types of Recommendations to Show

  • Choose to enable or disable the “Related Products by Purchase History” module
  • Choose to enable or disable the “Related Products by Views” module
  • Choose to enable or disable the “Products Frequently Purchased Together” module
  • Choose to enable or disable the built in WooCommerce related products.

Titles / Labels

  • Enter the label to display in the store for the “Related Products by Purchase History” module.
  • Enter the label to display in the store for the “Related Products by Views” module.
  • Enter the label to display in the store for the “Products Frequently Purchased Together” module.

Position of enabled recommendations

  • Choose the order you would like to show the modules on the single product pages.

In the Recommendations tabs, there are some basic stats:

Viewed: Number of times the item is being printed as a recommendation

Also Purchased: Customers who purchased an item also purchased this item at some point. So if a customer buys a flashlight, and then later buys batteries, batteries and flashlights would be linked by this type of recommendation.

Purchased Together: Items ordered at the same time. Similar to Amazon’s Purchased Together feature.
