What is a product recommendation system?

Product recommendation engines are designed to help online stores and website visitors find the relevant content and items that best meet their needs and interests.

A recommendation system uses several user data, e.g., past purchases, browsing history, and ratings, to personalize product recommendations.

Personalization with Recommender

A recommender is an algorithm that considers the user’s previously viewed items and searches its database for similar products.

It helps narrow any search by presenting personalized recommendations based on observed behavior.

Improved customer experience

By providing customers with items tailored to their individual interests and preferences and products similar to what they have already viewed, you can greatly improve their user experience.

Creating a personalized experience leads to customer loyalty and repeat purchases.

It’s easy to use and has robust features. I especially like AI-powered search and personalized recommendations. Our average order increased by over 10%. I recommend Luigi's Box to anyone who sells online.

How it works?

How product recommendation systems work

The recommendation process consists of several steps. First, with product strategies, AI technology can evaluate products, consumer interactions, and preferences. Based on this data, the system then generates recommendations for similar products or additions like extended warranties. It takes into account purchase history, time spent viewing a product, and other behavioral patterns.

Image analysis

In addition to analyzing customer data, product recommendation engines can also analyze the images of products. Recognition technology determines which items are similar and, therefore, recommends them. This helps customers find products they may not have found otherwise while still offering personalized recommendations tailored to their interests.

AI evaluation of previous interactions

AI technology can also evaluate customer behaviors across platforms. By analyzing their past activities, AI-powered recommendation systems can predict future purchases, helping you better anticipate your customers’ needs. Previous interactions are also crucial in providing relevant and valuable recommendations to the customer.

Recommend best sellers or selected products

Motivate your customers to buy more by featuring AI-driven recommendations for the most popular products. Leveraging cutting-edge technology tailored to match customer interests and preferences, our product recommendation system will expertly select bestsellers, complementary products, or items of interest that could be beneficial additions to their shopping cart.
