How to: Select my Product Recommendations

Created:   |   Updated:

ShippingEasy's Customer Marketing add-on makes it easy to increase sales via Product Recommendations.

With Product Recommendations, you can suggest additional products to your customers on packing slips, shipment notification emails and automated email campaigns. There are two recommendations methods, Global and Randomized. Find out what makes these methods different. Each of these methods can be used, alone or together, to maximize order growth potential.

To select which Products to feature in your Product Recommendations:

  1. From the blue navigation bar, expand the MARKETING tab and select PRODUCT RECOMMENDATIONS.Screen_Shot_2017-11-13_at_6.53.42_PM.png
  2. There are a few requirements that must be met before you can start using Product Recommendations.
    If you haven't yet set up these requirements, you'll be asked to do so.
    Once your account meets the minimum requirements, you'll see the "Lets get you started" page.
  3. In Step (1) Select Recommendations, click Get Started.
  4. You can select up to 30 Global Recommendations. Learn more about Global Recommendations.
  5. If you wish, use the search and "Store" filter to narrow down your options.
  6. Click on Product images to add the Products to your Global Recommendations.
  7. Use the arrows to prioritize your Global Recommendations list.
  8. Once you have selected Global Recommendations from all your stores, click Next Step.
  9. You can opt to use Randomized Recommendations. Learn more about Randomized Recommendations. If you choose not to use Randomized Recommendations, skip to step 16.
  10. To turn on Randomized Recommendations, click Off to toggle the feature On.
  11. By default, all Products are included in your Randomized Recommendations. Use the tools on this page to choose which Products to exclude from Product Recommendations.
  12. If you wish, use the search and "Store" filter to narrow down your options.
  13. Click on individual Product images to exclude those specific Products.
  14. Click on the Exclude All button to exclude everything within the searched and/or filtered results. Likewise, click the Include All button to include all results.
  15. Once you have configured your Randomized Recommendations for all your stores, click Next Step.
  16. Now it's time for step (2) Review Stores. The "Stores with Product Recommendations" will give you an overview of which stores are configured for Product Recommendations.
    Each icon gives you information about how the Product Recommendations have been configured for the store and Product Recommendation option.

    Review_Stores_-_Stores_with_Product_Recommendations_-_exclam.png There are no Products available because they either have not been linked (learn more) or are missing an image (learn more).
  17. Within the "Select Store for Manual Orders" section, you can choose which store's Product Recommendations to use for orders that are added manually. These orders are either uploaded via CSV file or entered from the QUICK SHIP page. Expand the menu and choose a store. Or leave it as No Recommendations if you do not want to suggest any Product Recommendations to these Customers.
  18. Once you have completed the Review Stores step, click Next Step.

Now you're ready to activate your Product Recommendations! Learn more.
