How do I import and export related products linked with a single product

Purpose and scope

Do you have products in your catalogue that you'd like to upsell or cross-sell? With our related product feature, you can link products together, which are then displayed in your Aphix WebShop under a configurable heading. We support two types of related products: linear related products and group related products

This feature guide provides a step by step guide on how to use our spreadsheet import / export functionality to import and export related products in your product catalogue.

Key points

We recommend that you read Understanding product administration in WebShop to understand how the import / export spreadsheet feature operates and Understanding related products for more information on this feature before following the steps outlined in this guide.

  • Click Update Related Products. This updates the links between the products as specified in the spreadsheets.

Remember that changes are immediately visible in WebShop.

Step 5: Verify changes

What do my customers see in WebShop?

Your customers can see related products (either linear or grouped) for the product you have updated once you have imported your changes.

Linear related products

In WebShop, all product codes listed apart from the first product code are displayed on the first product code’s detailed product page. The first product code is not listed on any of the other linked product listing pages. Related products are displayed on the first product’s detailed product page from left to right in alphabetical numerical order.


Group related products

In WebShop, all products listed in the spreadsheet are displayed under Related Products on each of the four product's detailed product pages.  The products are displayed from left to right in alphabetical numerical order.

To verify that the relationships created between products are correct, view the detailed product screen of the product(s) in WebShop and check that the related products are displayed as you expected.
