How Product Logics work

See a detailed list of the Product Logics available in Clerk.io, how they show the products they do and which endpoints they use.

Clerk.io has many different Product Logics that allows you to show the right products anywhere whether that is by using Recommendations, Search or Email.

Use the below table to get an overview of how each of them works. 

 

Product Logic Description API Endpoint
Best Sellers

The most popular products in your store, that have been included in the most amount of orders for the longest time. The amount of the same products in each order makes no difference.

Usually stays the same for extended periods as long as you have the same products in stock.

Hot Products

Products that recently saw an increase in sales.

No specific time frame is used - it is calculated dynamically based on changes in how the products sell. E.g. if a product normally sells 3 times pr. week but suddenly sells 20 times in two days, a trend is happening.

Best Cross-Sell Products

Products that are most likely to be bought with the product being viewed.

This is both based on the actual products bought with it, but also products that are likely to be a good match, e.g. a belt for a pair of pants.

We measure this by analysing which types of products are normally bought together, to allow the same types of recommendations to be displayed even for products that have not been bought together yet.

Fallback 1: If an unknown product ID is provided, Visitor Recommendations are shown

Fallback 2: If the visitor is not known, Best Sellers are shown.
