Does Also Bought work on Shopify POS (Point of Sale)?
Also Bought is compatible with the Shopify Point of Sale (POS) Product Recommendations Extension so that you can take advantage of the most powerful recommendation engine for Shopify.
One of the core features of the Also Bought integration with the Shopify POS is product-based recommendations so that merchants and store staff have direct access to other products that the algorithm has curated based on past orders online and offline.
The Also Bought tile is an interactive element that contains information about the number of recommendations and displays the recommendations for the actual product upon tapping on it.
Another interesting feature that Also Bought implements by default is cart-based recommendations. It takes the cart contents and builds recommendations for them.
Similarly to the product-based recommendations, these are available through a tile on the Home page that must be manually added in order to enable cart recommendations.
Should you want to enable cart recommendations please check the following tutorial.
In both scenarios, the recommendations are displayed on a different page enabling potential cross-selling suggestions to customers.
In the following video, we show you the Product Recommendations on the POS workflow so that you can get a better idea of how it would work on a baseline scenario.
On a side note, in order to make the most out of the Product Recommendations Extension, it's important to keep your POS software updated since this feature is only available on newer versions of POS.
