Hello friends, welcome to my another blog post how to add related product in OpenCart. Show related product is an important feature of an eCommerce website. When a customer view a product he/she might be interested in this type of product. So if we show him/her more products similar to that then we can increase our sell or customer has multiple options to choose his/her favorite product. So he/she can buy multiple product from our store. In this tutorial I will show you step by step to add related product in OpenCart. The process is quite same for OpenCart 1.5 and 2 version. So I do not create two parts of my tutorial. So lets start the process:
Add related product in opencart
Step1: Login into OpenCart dashboard and click Products
At first go to your website admin panel by putting your site name/admin(like www.myonlineshop.com/admin). Now give your admin username and password and click “Login” button. Now you are in website admin panel. Now mouse over “Catalog” menu and click on “Products” sub menu (This will be for OpenCart 1.5), for Opencart 2 version please see the below image.
Now you are in product listing page where you see all your product listed. Now choose a product (you will set related products of this product) and click on “Edit” link at right side.
Step2: Go to “Links” tab and set related products
Now you are in single product page. Here you see multiple tab like “General”, “Data”, “Links” etc. Click on “Links” tab, just scroll down below. Here you find “Related Products” with a text box. Just type your related product name (one or two character). You will definitely see a list of suggested products starting with the character you put. Just select you product. Repeat this steps multiple time to add multiple related products. Below image will help you.
After setting your related product just click on “Save” from top right corner. Now you successfully add related product in OpenCart. Now view your product detail page from front end and here you find your related product.
