A related items group is a set of items you can choose to recommend with other items in your website.

For example, Wolfe Electronics creates a related items group that contains items like cables, extension cords and surge protectors. Wolfe chooses to includes this related item group with monitors it sells in its website. When customers view Wolfe's monitors, they can navigate to the other products they need.

To create a related item group:

  1. Go to Setup > Suite Commerce Advanced > Related Items Categories > New.

  2. In the Category field, enter a name for this related item group.

    You will select this Category name when adding related item groups to items later in Step 10.

  3. (Optional) In the Brief Description field, enter a short message describing this group.

  4. On the Basic subtab, select an item from the list. Each item's brief description appears in the Item Description field.

  5. Click Add.

  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 to add other items to this group.

  7. When you have finished, click Save.

  8. Go to Web Site > Publishing > Items.

  9. Click Edit next to the item with which you want to associate the related items group.

    1. Click the Related Items subtab

    2. In the Related Item column, select the related item group from the list of categories.

    3. Click Add.

  10. Click Save.

Your related items group now appears with the item you are selling in your website.


If you use multiple websites, note that items only display on websites specified on the item record. For example, if you include item A and item B in the same related items group, then you must publish both items to the same websites, if you want the two items to always appear together.
