Which is the best Product Recommendations engine for Magento, Shopify, and BigCommerce eCommerce?

August 2, 2021


A visitor stepping into a brick and mortar store is greeted by the salesperson, and they are always available to recommend the best selling, new arrivals, or popular products at the store. Dynamic "Product Recommendations" in an eCommerce store tries to replicate the same visitor experience in an online store.

Product Recommendations are known to drive 35% of the revenue at Amazon.com and hence online visitors tend to expect the same online experience from other stores.

Considering this high potential, the placement of product recommendations has to be at the appropriate locations for the best results. For example, “Similar Products” is relevant only at the product detail pages. Displaying ‘Similar Products / Also viewed” recommendations at the home page will be inappropriate.

Below is the list of Product Recommendation types and its preferred location at an online store

  • Home Page - Bestsellers / Most Popular / Personalized Recommendations
  • Products page - Similar Products / Viewed Also viewed
  • Checkout page - 'Complete the Look' / Frequently bought together
  • Product category and listing pages - Bestsellers/New Arrivals specific to the category

Online retailers need to considers many factors such as features, performance, pricing, on-boarding, support, etc before selecting a vendor to serve their online product recommendation needs. Below is a comparison of various Product Recommendation providers and their features.

“You could sequence ‘recently added’ in and amongst ‘buys’ for example. Tagalys dramatically improved the conversion rates of Search & Product Listing Pages. I absolutely love working with this team”
