Adding Recommended Products
All product pages in the Turbo theme include the option to enable Recommended Products.
Shopify has introduced dynamic, automatically generated product recommendations that can be enabled as a section on product pages within your theme. Products are recommended based on an algorithm that predicts the most relevant products based on the product a customer is interacting with.
The algorithm used to generate these products uses sales data and product descriptions to show a variety of products that are alike or often bought together. Because of this, the product recommendations improve over time as new orders and product data become available.
The product will have to be in a Collection in order for recommended products to show up. If the product is not in a collection, then no recommended products will display.
Recommended Products can be added in any of the product templates available in the Turbo theme (product, product.details, product.description-bottom, product.full-width-images).
In order to add a 'Recommended Products' content block to your product page, head into Customize (your Theme Editor) > choose 'Product Pages' in the drop-down page selector. Your theme editor on the left will then update with the product page settings. Under Sections > Recommended Products > Enable Show dynamic recommendations
Recommended Products Settings
Within the recommended products settings, you can decide how many products you'd like to display, choose the layout design, and adjust how many products are displayed.
In the 'layout' setting, you can either choose to display your recommended products as a grid or slider.
A 'heading' of "You may also like" will show up by default. You can change this heading to something else if you'd like.
Products per row
You can choose between 2-4 products per row for your recommended products.
You can limit the number of products you'd like to appear in the recommended products. Choose between 2 - 10.
Recommended Products in Product.details
If you'd like recommended products to display in product.details product pages, you'll need to add them as a content block.
Once you've enabled the Show dynamic recommendations under Product Pages > Sections > Recommended Products, in your theme editor, click into Sections > Product details > Add content > Choose Recommended Products. Then, you can then drag + drop the content block in the theme editor to position the recommended products wherever you'd like on your product.details page!
Specify Recommended Products
If you'd like certain products to show up as recommended products, you will need to create a specific collection! This will overwrite Shopify's algorithm meaning that the products won't display dynamically or improve over time.
Create the new collection and make note of the collection's handle. The collection's handle can be seen by clicking 'Edit Website SEO' within the collection itself:

Then, go back to your product and add a new tag that specifies the collection's handle:
So in this example, since the collection handle is featured-products, so in our example product: 'Mixed Stripe Tee Dress' the tag to add would be meta-related-collection-featured-products.
The products in this collection should now be displayed as the Recommended Products:
