There are certain types of products that you want to promote in the recommendations by default. In this use case, we will show you how to promote high margin products in all types of recommendations. In order to do this we will use default filters.

Default filters are set up per recommendation type. To promote high margin items, we will set the filters to be elastic. This way, recommendations will always filter to products with high margin, unless there are no such products. Then the recommendations will return the rest of the products. For this approach to work, you will have to add information about the margin to the items feed or catalog as an item’s attribute. The margin can be a numeric value, however, this approach will also work with labels, for example: low, medium and high, or even a boolean value of true for high margin products.

Prerequisites


  • The margin attribute must be added to the items feed or catalog.
  • The recommendation models for which you want to add default filters to must be enabled.
