Cart-based Product Recommendations
Leverages your existing product catalog to recommend products to shoppers based on the items already in their cart.

About

Cart-Based Product Recommendations present add-ons within the Bolt Checkout Modal by leveraging the relationships set up in your platform’s product catalog. Shoppers can select and add these up-sells to their cart.

Cart-Based Product Recommendations may surface more relevant products to your shoppers than Bolt’s Static Product Recommendations feature.

INFO

Please note that recommendations featuring variant selections such as size, color, and other attributes are not currently supported.

Set Up for Platforms

  1. Ensure your ecommerce platform’s product catalog contains related products where relevant.

  2. Reach out to your Customer Success Manager or Bolt’s Support Team to turn on the “Enable fetching add-ons from the cart platform” feature flag for your division.

  3. After the appropriate feature flags have been flipped on, Bolt will retrieve and display your recommended products at checkout.

Set Up for Custom Cart

Implement the cart.addons event handlers within your codebase. This will return the specific add-ons you would like to display within the Bolt modal.

You can find more information in the cart.addons endpoint of our Merchant Callback API.
