Enhancing your potential with the use of advanced and well developed merchandising techniques is the only way to stay one step ahead of the game in this ever-changing and newly developing arena. So how does it work? And how do you know what’s best?

How to Cross Sell


Locayta’s cross selling tools span across all facets of your website, ensuring that all opportunities to push additional sales  and enhance your bottom line numbers are seized. This includes the placement of Product Recommendations on product detail pages, visual merchandising with strategic product sequencing using Locayta’s unique Balance Factor on search pages as well as on the home page, add to basket and check-out pages.

Understanding the relationship between products, your user behaviour and the information you store about your products, Locayta can strategically place highly likely purchase options on screen both in real time and dynamically in response to changes in the products themselves and to changes in user behaviour.

Cross Sellling in action

After launching with Locayta and utilitisng their up selling technology, The British Museum’s Ecommerce Manager Fabrice Druelle is impressed with the unique combination of product recommendation, merchandising and search functionality on offer to enhance their online sales. “Locayta offered us a tool we simply couldn’t find elsewhere. In the past we were under using the platform, but now we are planning to develop the system’s capabilities as part of our future plans. We have re-skinned our site to enhance the use of product recommendations and give visitors a whole new look and feel with maximised product placement and cross-selling potential.”
