Product recommendations are a great way to drive repeat purchases 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 in 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:

  1. Click Products

  2. Click Collections

  3. You will see a collection called Spently - Recommended Products.

  4. Click on this to create rules or to view the collection.

To add product recommendations to your template, all you need to do is click the Add Section button on the left-hand side and search for Product Recommendations.

Once this is in your template, it will be automated for you when you set the templates live onto Shopify.

Conditional Recommendations.
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 from 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 the Conditional Recommendations check box on the right-hand side.

You will then be able to choose the collections from here:

Don't see the collection you want? Click Load more collections to pull more collections in from your store.

Please note that you will have to enable conditional recommendations per template.
