Related Products - only show from same collection

Hi folks,

I was hoping to use the 'Product recommendations' feature in Debut. But from what I see it pulls products from ALL the collections and not just the small sub-collection that a product is in. Basically I would like to specify the collection to recommend.

For example: Say I have a tshirt and its part of the global site 'tshirt' collection, but then I also have it in a very small 5 product group called 'bowie'. This bowie collection contains 5 tshirts, all with slight design variations. I would like the customer to be able to see that below the main product there up to 4 additional designs in the collection.

I am hoping to use an existing Section and add in to the product.liquid in a similar way to 

{% section 'product-recommendations' %} has been used.

If its not possible to do this automatically using collections then can add something into the product.liquid (say Custom content or Featured Collection) and then time I can at least manually add the images, prices and product links.

 

Many thanks,

David

Hey there, David

 

Bo here from Shopify Support! 

 

That is a really great question! The recommendation algorithm uses sales data and product descriptions to show a mix of products that are similar or often bought together. Product recommendations become more accurate over time as new orders and product data become available. You can read more about this in this help doc.

 

I do, however, totally see where you are coming from. Being able to select more closely related products to show alongside your products. For this kind of control, I would have to recommend going down the lines of related product apps.  You can take a look at our product recommendation apps here. 

 

Let me know how this goes and if there is anything else I can assist you with, I'm happy to help!

 

All the Best,

Bo
