How can I force an additional item into a customer's cart?

Hello,

is there a way or an app out there that forces the customer to add an item to the cart if they add a specific item to the cart?

For example I sell the item X, Y and Z. A customer put the item Z in the cart but it is useless without the item Y, so I have to force him (before the payment) to add the item Y too to the cart.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi, @VirtuaMagic 

Perhaps the app called EasyGift will work for you! 

You can use Gifter for many things, like:

  • Adding a free gift to a customer's cart when their cart exceeds a certain amount (this can be a hidden product you can't access normally)
  • Force bundling complementary products that have to be bought together
  • Tacking on a surcharge for certain products or order quantities
  • Much more

If you have any questions about the app you can reach out to their support via email: 

  • gifter@cashflowtechnologies.zendesk.com

Hope this helps!

Thanks for your reply but I'm looking for a free app, I can't spend 10$ each month just for 1 function (force to add an item to the cart, for 1 product only)

No worries, @VirtuaMagic, I completely understand!

I'm unable to find a free app with this feature; however, a developer may be able to help you with some code to make this happen! I'd recommend re-posting your question in our Design board to see if members of our community can help you accomplish this with a code change!

Hey @VirtuaMagic ,
If you get some help from a shopify expert, the feature can be done and you will pay for once not a monthly fees.

I can do it for you if you still wanting to do it.
