Cart Cross-Sells

With Cart Cross-Sells, you have an opportunity to offer recommended products to the user right before they enter your checkout flow. Using Miso's Product to Products API, you can show personalized suggestions that are related to the items in the user's cart.

Example for Cart Cross-Sells


Cart Cross-Sells are the "last chance" to trigger recommendations for the user before they go through the checkout flow. Cross-sells are additional products, bundles, and services that go along with the items in the user's cart. They are typically are displayed directly on the cart page itself, or in a popup right before the user enters the checkout flow. Cross-sells are often accompanied by UX strategies like discounting and urgency.

The Cart Upsells recipe is quite flexible. You can pass in a single product to get a laser-targeted upsell, or generate upsells across the entire cart. You can also narrow down the set of product categories to recommend. As always, upsells are personalized to the individual user and their real-time interactions on your site.

To fully optimize your checkout user journey, you may want to consider using the companion Cart Upsells recipe to generate more recommendations that go along with the items in the cart.

  • user_id: The user or anonymous visitor to personalize the recommendations for
