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

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

In order to access it, go to the app preferences page and click on the 'Recommendation explorer' button:

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
