First, navigate to the theme customizer. If you haven't done this before, instructions can be found here:
Then, follow these steps (for desktop):
After following these steps, product recommendations should then appear on your product pages.
I hope this helps.
Thanks so much for your response. I have the recommendations turned on but they don't show in certain situations.
After playing around a little more, I found that :
-if I go to a product through my home page (/products/<product name>) - the product recommendations DO NOT show.
-If I go to a product through my collections page (/collections/frontpage/<product name>)- the product recommendations DO show.
Just as an FYI, at the moment I only have one collection and it is all on my home page..
Is there a way to make the product recommendations always show?
I've found an article which details the behaviour of the product recommendations section:
I think this part of the article describes what is happening in your case:
If the product doesn't have a collection URL, then the recommendation algorithm finds collections that include the product and pulls other products from those instead (excluding collections with handles “all” and “frontpage”)."
With this information, in order to have related products appear you may need to create another collection (not "all" or "frontpage") that includes the related products. If this isn't appropriate for your needs, the article goes on to say that once your store develops a purchase history, product recommendations will start to appear even for products without a collection URL.
I hope this helps.
Have you heard of Interactive Product Recommendations?
You can make your product recs interactive and allow your customers to "like/dislike" products similar to a social feed... then Skafos Visual AI recommends better products to customers in real-time.
