So – once we have products loaded up into nopCommerce, the next step is to associate related and “cross-sell” products, in order to create an “upsell” opportunity. Examples would be a matching belt or purse for a pair of shoes, or a sheet set that matches a duvet. We’ll cover how to provide those additional purchase options in nopCommerce.
You’re probably wondering what’s the difference between “Related Products” and “Cross-Sell” items; simply put, in the nopCommerce context, the “Related Products” will display on the page of the product itself, while the “Cross-Sell” products will appear at the bottom of the shopping cart, once you’ve started your checkout process. You can have the same products in both areas, or use the “cross-sell” to highlight products currently on sale that would appeal to the same demographic as the product in the cart, such as a gaming headset for customers purchasing a PC MMO.
