Hi

Does anyone have experience of a good recommendations engine to use for a Magento install? There are a few out there, but I have not yet found one that has a large number of sales and positive reviews.

Thanks in advance

Howdy Andrew,

Chris was talking about this a few weeks back, just pinged him the link to this post for you as he knows more than me on this one.

Hi Andrew,

When you say ‘recommendations engine’ are you meaning an extension to improve the Magento search functionality?

Hi Chris – I have only just seen your kind reply.

No, I’m not referring to Search, for which I use InstantSearch+, which worked brilliantly for me when I was doing Woocommerce sites and continues to work well now.
InstantSearch+ is expanding its product to provide recommendations, I believe, so I will take a proper look.

I was referring to “other people who bought this also bought” or “you might also like these products” – a big data tool that predicts relationships between cart items, previous purchases, what other people have browsed and added to cart and bought, etc.

In Woocommerce I used Graphflow for this, which worked well, but they do not have a Magento product.
