This new addon will give you a "Customers who bought this, also bought these..." list on your product pages, the same kind of thing that Amazon does.

You can buy it (and see more info and examples) via:

http://bigyellowzone.com/shopexd.asp?id=97

This will allow you to use a "Customers who bought this, also bought..." list to your product templates as a new template-field. Highly configurable and easy to tweak.

This is "all-in" (ie you don't need to buy any of our other addons for this to be able to work; everything you'll need is included). This means that you get a free copy of our generic "create your own extra template fields" addon which has loads of examples/instructions so you can create your own extra template-fields if you want too.

We're open to suggestions, so if anyone buys it and wants to tweak it, please feel free to let us know what kind of tweaks you'd want to make as it's possible/probable that we could apply requested tweaks as extra options and then send-out updates.

For the ordering, it basically picks-out the most popular items and shows them at the top (popular by customer-count, then by order-count, then by item-count), then by name. You can change that if you want, but it seems to work best.

Similarly for the selection/querying; it basically ignores categories completely and cross-references directly, and this makes more sense and comes back with better results than restricting by category. After all, the whole point is that if you're looking for, say, a watch, then seeing an "also-bought" for batteries/straps would be relevant/wanted. Again, you can change that if you want, but the existing logic seems to be/work best and show the most relevant results that customers would jump at saying "ooh; I want that thing too".

It'll work on VP-ASP 4.5, 5, or 5.5 (and on Access, SQLServer, or MySql)
