Populating carousels with historic data

In this feature, you can: 

  • Populate carousels with historic data

To populate carousels by rule, do the following: 

  1. Login to your WebStore Manager.
  2. Go to Design & Content > Carousel Builder.
  3. Select or create a new carousel.
  4. Select populated by history.

Populating carousels with historic purchase data

  • Every time a product is bought, your store remembers which products were bought with it. 
  • When Widget_A is bought with Widget_ B that connection is stored. This carousel will then use this data to display products that were bought together.
  • This carousel should only be included on product pages. On the product page for Widget_A this carousel will look for other products that were bought with it. 

Note: The panel only makes sense to use after the store has built up a history of purchases.

Options that Affect this Carousel

  • There are two global options that have an effect on the products displayed in this carousel.
  •  Because they are global options you cannot set them ‘per carousel’.

Ordering of Items

  • By default, we arrange the items in the carousel by the frequency with which they were bought together. 
  • It is possible to change this to display the associated items alphabetically.

Number of Items to Display

  • This allows you to determine the number of items to display on this carousel. 
  • This overrides the global setting found in the WebStore Configuration page called Change the number of related items displayed.
