Hello, I would like to know how to place a related product page for the purposes of upsell during checkout. For instance when someone buys a lipstick and proceeds to checkout, I would like to be able to offer them related products such as mascara or a concealer etc. Basically items that relate to their initial purchase. Then they can decide to add those products to their cart or just proceed to checkout.
What do you think?

eStore doesn’t have a related page option. You just use a normal related posts plugin of WordPress. When you place products in various pages the page becomes your product page so the related page based on tags will server as the related products pages.February 25, 2011 at 6:41 am #29130lovinwordpressMember
ok thanks will look into itNovember 2, 2011 at 11:48 am #29131spiritualsubliminalsMember
On a similar note, how about an “Also Purchased” shortcode (like say Amazon.com) where estore automatically inserts 2-3 items that other people have purchased with the first item?November 3, 2011 at 2:26 am #29132adminKeymaster
You can get a similar effect by using a “Show random products from a the same category as the product in question” shortcode. The extra eStore shortcodes plugin has a shortcode that will let you show 2 or 3 random products from a particular category you specify.November 3, 2011 at 3:26 am #29133spiritualsubliminalsMember
great will try – cheers!January 11, 2012 at 11:01 am #29134ZainParticipant
This is nearly what I’m looking for – “Related products” are definitely a feature that helps to upsell additional products.
The shortcode to display additional random products is useful, however would it be possible to have a “Other Customers Also Purchased” shortcode?
Having played with WP eStore and eMember, I know that purchase details are already stored in the database of what people have bought. These can be displayed for specific user profiles. (Very nice!).
Taking the idea one step further, would it be possible to look at this purchase information and then generate related products based on what people have also “purchased together”?
I realise there may be some issues to consider – like querying potentially thousands of users could cause a system meltdown (if it’s done *every* time a page is viewed). What about the information only generated once in a while, as requested by the Admin?
Anyway, something like this would be great. Again, I’d be happy to purchase an “Add-On” plugin to WP eStore (like the Shortcodes one), if it could do this.

We have added a “Popular Products” shortcode in eStore which should come in handy for you (this one doesn’t require lots of queries on every page load). If you show the popular products from a particular category it will give you a similar effect as the popular products are the ones that got purchased a lot.January 12, 2012 at 10:01 am #29136ZainParticipant
Superb! That’s precisely what I was looking for. Thanks!
I think I need to download a new version of the shortcode PDF.
Keep up the great work.

The popular products shortcode is exactly what I’m looking for. Problem is, I can’t find it in the documentation, on the site, in my Shortcodes and Extra Shortcodes PDF…
Could you please point me in the right direction?

And of course, I find my answer after I send my help request!
Magic, the way that happens.
