Product recommendations are great way to drive repeat purchase to your store!
You can do this through either the Spently Recommended Products or Conditional Recommendations. Please note that you will have to enable conditional recommendations per template.
Spently Recommended Products
When you install Spently to your store we automatically create a hidden collection called "Spently Recommended Products". Don't worry though, this collection is completely hidden and customers will not be able to find it.
Products in the "Spently Recommended Products" are populated automatically and dynamically, to ensure that your customer will never see a product that they have just purchased. Every 4 hours this feature is updated to pull your best selling products at that time.
Here is how to find this hidden collection in your Shopify settings:
- Click "Products"
- And you will see a collection called "Spently - Recommended Products".
- Click on this to create rules or to view the collection.
To add product recommendations to your template, all you need to do is drag this component into your templates.
Once this is in your template, it will be automated for you when you set the templates live onto Shopify.
The conditional recommendation section is designed for seasoned merchants who prefer more control of their recommendations.
If you’re a merchant with an existing set, you’ll have to remove your recommendation component off of your current template and drag on the new one. You’ll be able to adjust the logic behind this through the sidebar, and once you’re happy with it — you can set the updated templates live onto Shopify to reflect the changes.
The conditional recommendation section allows you to set rules around the products we recommend within your email notifications. If someone purchases a product from X collection, then we will recommend products from Y collection.
To set up a conditional recommendation, add a "Product Recommendations" component and click "Settings"
You will then be able to choose the collections from here.
