Have you ever wondered how to show “Related products” or “You may also like…” on your product pages? This can help improve sales significantly since you are subtly telling the customer to buy more products by showing them more products.
As it happens, ti is very easy for you to add this feature. Here’s how:
In all your products, add the grid display shortcode but limit the number of products you show to the category and number of products you want.
Look at this product for an example. The following is the shortcode that generates the three similar products at the bottom:
[dpsc_grid_display category=”3” total=”3″ column=”3″ per_page=”3″ type=”duka”]
Simple, eh? have fun playing with it!
- Unfortunately, there is a bug that prevents the product variations from working properly when you add this element to your product pages.
- You’ll be pleased to know that we are building something nice and elegant to fix the above bug – a new DukaPress module that deals with related products. Thanks to Donal for this idea.
- Now, once you set this up, you will quickly realise that you need a way to choose the order of the products displayed because currently it will only show them in chronological order. We are adding the ability for you to select the order in which the products shown by the grid display shortcode appear. Initially, it will be: chronologically, alphabetically, and randomly.
What do you think of all this?
