Creating your first upsell is easy.

There are 4 offer types to choose from:

  • On Page
  • Action
  • Cart
  • Post Purchase

The first 2 are the most important in terms of your customers upsell journey. 95% of all upsell revenue will be generated from these.

Of the 2, Action Upsell is the highest converting. On Page upsells convert well for accessory type add ons but you can set them up however you want!


Create “On Page” Upsell.

We have an interactive demo below. Click the pulsing button below to start.

To create an On Page upsell offer:

  1. Pick a name. This is internal only and for you reference. If you have 50 upsells active, naming can help you easily identify!
  2. Select a lead product. This is the product where you want the upsell to display. When a customer is looking at this product, they will be offered whatever you select in the next step as upsell!
  3. Upsell Product. These are the products you offer as upsells. Customers will be able to easily add these to their cart. If the product you choose to offer as an upsell has variants, you can select the actual variant to offer. This is because upsells are impulsive by nature so you want to remove the paradox of choice!If the product has variants such as size/model then leave variant blank. The customer can choose this frontend in modal popup.
  4. Product Title. By default, the product title will be used. If you want to make the upsell a “Call to action” or CTA then you can change it here. An example would be where you have a coffee machine for sale and a filter is the upsell. Rather than it just being “Deluxe 3pk of Coffee Filters” you could change this to “Add some extra filters?”. This will invite the customer to add the upsell to the cart.

To edit how upsells visually appear, just visit the global settings button.


  • For point 2, there is “Switch to collection mode“. This would be used to offer the upsells you select in step 3 on all products within a collection you select in step 2 when collection mode is active.
  • You can choose to hide prices.
  • You can use a call to action text instead of the generic product title (shown in the demo above)


Create an Action Upsell

We have an interactive demo below. Click the pulsing button below to start.

Creating an “Action Upsell” uses the same flow with a few differences. You can set a title for the popup that is shown along with a description.

With Action Upsells, all the variants for an upsold product are shown.

You can only create 1 Action upsell per product/collection. For example, if you had a “Super Deluxe coffee machine” and created an action upsell for it to upsell some coffee filters, this would be the upsell that is triggered when the customer adds the coffee machine to their cart. You can show unto 3 products on the upsell you create. If you were to create another separate action upsell with the “Super Deluxe coffee machine”, it would conflict with the original action upsell you created.


Cart Upsells

Think chewing gum at a supermarket checkout. Cart Upsells should be low value, impulse product buys that will appeal to all your customers.

There is no point in trying to upsell a deluxe fridge freezer here or

Cart Upsells allow you to select up to 3 static upsells to feature on your cart page.

Cart Upsells

These are shown on the cart page. If you your store uses a side-cart and does not direct to a conventional cart page then you will miss this upsell opportunity.

More on Cart Upsells here.


Post Purchase Upsells

This is a last chance offer that is displayed on the thank you page.

The power of this offer is to get your customers entering your store again and re-igniting a shopping session.
