Frequently Bought Together

Frequently Bought Together extension continues our line of Amazon’s innovative techniques adaption on Magento platform. This module has been created to substitute and significantly improve functionality and usability of Magento core module Related Products.

During the installation Frequently Bought Together turns off Related Products block and allows you to choose where to display its content by inserting a simple code in your CMS. Once embedded, the extension displays related products in a neat, comfortable and modern way, employing smooth and eye-catching AJAX and JavaScript effects. Frequently Bought Together does not only enrich your store content and make it look web 2.0 – it also attracts and encourages your customers to put additional products in their cart, increasing your cross sells and total purchase amount.

From AJAX side the module is powered by Pico JavaScript library – an in-house project of aheadWorks Co.

Frequently Bought Together takes its honored place in our set of perfectly crafted Magento sale motivation extensions.

This extension allows you to add graphical labels to your special products images.

Attract your visitors to special items – the labels can be displayed in catalog view as well as in product. The label image and text are easily customized: you can use a label that comes into the package and upload you own; you can not only write your text on the label but also use the following variables: Discount Amount (calculated automatically), Regular Price, Special Price, Save Amount (calculated automatically). So it’s possible to label your products with texts like “Save $10 on this item today”, or “Buy for $29 save $10!” – all price values are calculated for each product individually. Label appears only when there is a special price for the product.

This way you save a lot of time when running e.g. seasonal discounts campaign, with a simple 3-minutes setup you can put labels on a category or the whole store.

Some features:

  • Separate catalog and product view labels setup
  • Ability to upload your own images for catalog and product labels
  • Labels appear when special price is set
  • 6 predefined label positions
  • Special variables to use in your label texts
  • Ability to disable labels for catalog or/and product
  • Compatible with all major browsers (IE6, IE7, IE8, Safari, Opera, FireFox 2, FireFox 3, Google Chrome)
  • Separate CSS files for catalog and product labels
