Linked Products Tab

This tab has two options….Upsells & Cross Sells. Here we describe the difference between with examples :

Difference between Upsells & Cross-Sells Products:

23 BalasoreCity KnowledgeBase

Upsells:  An upsell is to get the customer to spend more money – buy a more expensive model of the same type of product, or add features / warranties that relate to the product in question.

Cross-sells:  A cross-sell is to get the customer to spend more money buy adding more products from other categories than the product being viewed or purchased.

The terms cross-sell and upsell are often used interchangeably because, let’s face it, this gets confusing.

Say the customer is viewing a 4GB iPod Nano for Rs.12,500.

Upsell items :

8 GB iPod Nano, Rs. 17,000 -> Upsell, same product family, more expensive

8 GB iPod Touch, Rs. 18,000 -> Upsell, same product family, more expensive

16 GP iPod Touch, Rs. 30,000 –> Upsell, same product family, more expensive

8 GB Microsoft Zune, Rs. 18,500 -> Upsell, more expensive, same category

Cross-Sell items:

Apple In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic , Rs. 3,000 -> Cross-sell

Skull Candy Headphones, Rs. 2000, -> Cross-sell

Rs. 1,500 iTunes Card -> Cross-sell

Portable DVD Player, Rs. 22,500 -> Cross-sell.
