Adding a related products section
You can add a section to your product pages that displays a list of related products that are automatically-generated or manually set by you using the Shopify Search & Discovery app. Learn how to customize related products with the app.
Displaying related products to customers makes it easier for them to discover new products, and can help to increase online store sales.
The heading and layout of the related products section are determined by your theme.
Understanding related products
Related products are based on products that are commonly purchased together, have a similar product description, or products in related collections. Related products become more accurate over time as more order and product information becomes available.
Learn more about the data used for related products from the Shopify theme development documentation.
Customizing the appearance of related products
Related products is a section on your product pages in Online Store 2.0 themes. If you are using a theme that isn't compatible with Online Store 2.0, then you will need to upgrade your theme. You can customize the appearance of your related products to include the title, price, vendor, and a short description, or hide it from your product pages. You can have only one related products section on a product page at a time.
- From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Themes.
- Find the theme that you want to edit, and then click Customize.
- Select Products > Default product to load the template in the theme editor.
- Do one of the following:
- If your product page has a related products section, then click Related products.
- If your product page doesn't have a related products section, then click + Add section and then select Related products.
- Click Save.
You can disable related products by clicking the eye symbol. Disabling related products hides the section from your product listing, but doesn't delete it.
