This tutorial will show you how to set up product relations in Magento.
There are three types of product relations in Magento: Up-sells, Related Products, and Cross-sell Products.
Upsells: when viewing a product, Upsells for this product are items that your customers would ideally buy instead of the product they’re viewing. They might be better quality, produce a higher profit margin, be more popular, etc. They appear on the product info page.
Related products: related products appear in the product info page, in the right column. Related products are meant to be purchased in addition to the item the customer is viewing.
Cross-sells: cross-sell items appear in the shopping cart. When a customer navigates to the shopping cart (this can happen automatically after adding a product, or not), the cross-sells block displays a selection of items marked as cross-sells to the items already in the cart.
Log into the Magento admin.
Navigate to Catalog -> Manage Products.
Find the product to which you want to add Upsells/Related products.
Select and edit this product.
Select the Upsells/Related products tab:
From the products grid that appears, check any products you’d like to mark as Upsells/Related products (press Reset Filter to see all products).
Once a product has been checked, the Position field opens up. This determines the sort order of the Upsells/Related products on the main products page.
You’re done! Navigate to the front-end and check out your newly created Upsells/Related products block:
Follow the steps above.
Once a product has been checked, the Position field opens up. This determines the sort order of the cross-sells in the shopping cart. If you have multiple products in the cart, they are randomly selected, so the sort order will not take effect. Press Save.
In the front-end, add the product you just edited to the shopping cart.
In the shopping cart you should now be able to see the cross-sells in the cross-sells block as shown below:
