Search & Discovery - product recommendations

Is it possible to specify criteria for which products should be recommended on another?

I want to personalise how recommendations are automatically generated. We have over 1000 products so it is simply out of the question to do so manually. I'm thinking it'd make sense to be able to specify 'recommend other products by the same vendor' for example, or 'recommend other products with the same metafield'.


If it isn't possible, does anyone know how I could request such a feature? I do believe it would be beneficial for countless other businesses and I can't imagine it would be too complicated to implement.

Absolutely, it is indeed possible to specify criteria for generating personalized product recommendations on your Shopify store. While Shopify's native recommendation system might not offer this feature out-of-the-box, there are several third-party apps available in the Shopify App Store that can help you achieve this level of customization.

For instance, you can explore third-party Shopify apps designed to enhance product recommendations on your online store. Moreover, it helps to define specific criteria for product recommendations.

These apps typically provide options to personalize recommendations based on following factors.

Product Attributes
Customer Behavior

For instance you're running a boutique clothing store and want to recommend other products from the same designer whenever a customer views a particular item.

Third party apps help you set up rules to ensure that recommendations align with your business goals and provide a seamless shopping experience for your customers.

If you can't find an app that perfectly fits your requirements, you may consider reaching out to Shopify support or posting in the Shopify Community forums to request such a feature.

Shopify actively listens to merchant feedback and continuously updates its platform based on user needs and suggestions. Remember to provide detailed information about how you envision the feature working and why it would be valuable for your business.

Overall, by exploring third-party apps and engaging with the Shopify community, you can find solutions to personalize product recommendations and enhance the shopping experience for your customers.
