integration_documentation:recommendations

Findologic provides several different options to display recommendations for your users. With these recommendations you can help your customers finding fitting additional products fast.

In the following section you find an explanation regarding the different recommendation options and the corresponding requirements.


Last visited items

Offer your user an overview over the products that this user visited in this browser session.


Requirements

  • Information where to place the recommendation box (f.e. product detail page).
  • Place a dedicated container with an exact identifier (e.g. a certain class in the <body> of every product detail page) on the page where you want to display the recommendations.

Similar items based on attributes

Offer your user an overview over similar products to the currently shown product on the product detail page. We calculate the similarity of the products based on common attributes. The threshold on how many attributes should be used for the calculation can be adjusted during the integration.


Requirements

  • The ordernumber of the currently opened product has to be available somewhere on the product detail page (e.g. as metatag).
This is usually done by default by most shopsystems
You can also combine this with our 1:1 personalization to show personalized similar items.

Spare items

Offer your user an overview over spare items matching the currently shown product on the product detail page.


Requirements

  • Information where to place the recommendation box.
  • Either:
    • Each main item in the feed has a property called `spare-items-ordernumbers` containing all ordernumbers that are similar to this product.
    • The ordernumber of the currently opened product has to be available somewhere on the product detail page (e.g. as metatag).
  • Or:
    • Each spare item in the feed has an attribute called `isSpareTo` containing the IDs of the corresponding main items.
    • The ordernumber of the currently opened product has to be available somewhere on the product detail page (e.g. as metatag).
  • Or:
    • The ordernumbers of the similar items are provided in the DOM as a metatag (e.g. <meta class=“fl-spare” val=“[1, 2, 3]”>)
