Feature added in Pipeline 6.1
Double your upsell opportunities with uniquely paired products that appear on both the Cart and individual Product pages. Each product can have its own custom "Buy it with" upsell promotion:
Pipeline uses Shopify's Dynamic source feature, metafields, to pair products with other products.
There are two initial steps involved when setting up custom paired products:
Create an upsell metafield with the name theme.upsell
Connect the metafield in the Theme Editor
After the initial setup, each product can easily be paired with other products using your Shopify Admin under Product setup.
The first step is to define a product metafield with the namespace
theme and type Reference to Product:
If that sounds complicated, we've made an easy-to-follow 1-minute video, to demonstrate exactly all the steps needed for creating this type of metafield. This is only required once and is simple to do in your Shopify Admin.
Watch this 1-minute video on how to create the correct type of upselling metafield:
After creating the upsell metafield, we can connect it to Pipeline using the Theme Editor. Watch this 1-minute video on how to connect the upsell metafield:
Steps covered in the video:
Add the upsell theme block.
Configure the upsell theme block to connect with the upsell metafield
After defining your upsell metafield and connecting it in the Theme Editor, you're ready to pair products together. This step is very simple and is managed in your Product setup of the Shopify Admin.
For each individual product, select a pairing product. The paired product will appear as the "Buy it with" promotion on both the product page and the Cart:
Cart promotions will appear when using either of these cart styles in Pipeline:
When selecting a product for the "Buy it with" promotion, we recommend you choose products with one variant. The one-click Add to Cart button adds the default variant to the Cart with no variant selection. Upsell products work best when they have one variant.
