Tip Check out similar features like Complementary products for the product page and Cross sells in the cart to show customers related products that they can purchase in addition to the selected product.

In the Product template, the Product recommendations sidebar displays similar products to allow customers to discover new products that are relevant to them.

Recommendations are automatically generated based on products in related collections, products that are commonly purchased together, or similar product descriptions. Recommendations improve over time with more customer and product information. You can customize product recommendations by downloading Shopify's Search & Discovery app.
