Frequently Bought Together

Author: Anna Nguyen 1682 views

The Frequently Bought Together extension will help you choose to display products that are often purchased with the same main product. You can select the products in a fixed way, or display the products related to the main product through the metafield. This strategy is used to encourage customers to buy more products.

For example, the main product on your product page is a Speaker, so you can add a Clock or Lamp to buy together. They are also products that are similar to a selected product.

1. Install the Frequently Bought Together extension

There are two ways to install the extension:

  • Click on the Extension icon at the top left corner.
  • Under the Extension tab, click Add more.

On the Extension popup, you can see the Frequently Bought Together extension, click Install now to install it to your Extensions.

After installing the extension, the “EComposer product bundle” metafield will be added to Shopify. Please go to Shopify Settings -> Custom data -> Products to check if the Metafiled is there:


2. How to configure Frequently Bought Together using Metafield

In the Product page of a Main product, please scroll down to the bottom > Metafield option then click the “Show All” button you will see the EComposer product bundle Metafield.

Find out the EComposer product bundle name.

Now the most relevant products to the Main product are based on the products that you choose here.

You can drag and drop up and down the product order to change the order of them in the actual list.

As a result, when you drag and drop this element onto a Product template of the main product, the chosen products appear immediately.
