Can I check how recommendations for a particular product are built?

Also Bought provides a Recommendation Explorer which shows the different products that are displayed as the recommendations for one particular product.

To access it, go to the 'Recommendation explorer' section of the app preferences:

Then, select a product using the Shopify product picker, clicking the next button:

After selecting a product, you will see the different kinds of recommendations available for that product (manual, automatic, global, and random):

If a recommendation is not visible (because it is not visible in the online store sales channel or it is out-of-stock, for example), it will be displayed with a different style and with no position number:

The possible reasons why a recommendation may not be visible are the following:

  • The product is configured as an excluded recommendation
  • The product is tagged as a hidden recommendation
  • The product does not have an image
  • The product is out of stock
  • The product is not visible in the online store sales channel
  • The product does not exist in the store
  • The product data is temporarily not available
