Cross-Selling Tools in CS-Cart: the Buy Together Add-on

By Yan Kulakov, Monday, January 26th, 2015 in Articles, Tips and tricks

Hi!

Cross-selling means suggesting related products to customers. Merchants use cross-selling techniques to sell additional useful products to their customers.

CS-Cart offers four built-in cross-selling tools. In this article, we’re going to tell you about one of them—the Buy Together add-on.

Buy Together Add-on

The Buy Together add-on allows you to group related products into a bundle and offer a discount for the bundle. For example:

Buy Together Example

The screenshot shows the add-on in action. A customer is looking for a new hiking backpack. Perhaps he or she is going on an overnight hike. Offer a new sleeping bag as well, and give a discount for the bundle. As a result, the customer gets a new set of camping gear at a lower price, and you increase your online sales.

For instructions on setting up the Buy Together add-on, refer to our Knowledge Base.
