Sold Together - Also Bought
is the cross selling extension that automatically predicts
what customers might want to buy after viewing the current product page.
The extension combines data from other customer orders and suggests a list of products that have a high correlation with the current product.
The entire process if fully automated
and it's much more precise than the "Related products" feature that comes with Opencart.
Imagine a shop with thousands of products. It would be impossible to manually relate products each other and you would probably also relate some product incorrectly.
By contrast, Sold Together provides a more reliable list of products
generated automatically by real orders and real customers.
If the shop doesn't have orders yet or a new product was added to the catalog, the extension returns a list of products from the same product category and if nothing found, it returns a random list of products.
HOW IT WORKS
The extension works like the Amazon feature Customers who bought this product also bought...
, it comes with two different algorithms that work in two slightly different ways (you can choose either one or the other, depending or your needs).
- SOLD TOGETHER Algorithm
This algorithm shows products bought by other customers TOGETHER (in the same order) with the currently viewed product;
- ALSO BOUGHT Algorithm
This algorithm doesn't search for products to display only in orders containing the currently viewed product. When it finds a customer order containing that product, it also checks all the other orders of that customer and marks all the products of those orders as potential products to recommend.
In other words the ALSO BOUGHT Algorithm extends the SOLD TOGETHER Algorithm, product correlations are weaker but in some types of shops (where products are almost all of the same kind, video games for example) it's very effective.
This simple example explains how the two algorithms work.
