Locayta and Paperchase

One of the beneficial and easy quick-win merchandising solutions for many retailers online is the implementation of Product Recommendations. With the power to increase conversion rates by up to 15%, presenting your customers with appealing additional product purchases is effective in increasing the volume of high spends on your retail platform.


At Locayta, Product recommendations are crucial to online retailing success and form a key part of the Freestyle Merchandising repertoire. Specifically designed at Locayta HQ, the technology uniquely uses the collective intelligence based upon users’ behaviour on your retail site, and resultantly generates individual user by user based personalised product recommendations alongside the items currently being browsed  By implementing relevant, personal and dynamically updated product suggestions to your users, the uptake percentage is dramatically increased. Current Locayta client,  Adrian Spence, Head of eCommerce at Paperchase, points out the labour saving benefits of the system, “Our products are all about driving newness and offering fresh collections,. At Paperchase we’re thinking much more strategically about product recommendations to optimise our conversions. The ability to automate this process has saved us huge amounts of time. The search and category functions give us complete flexibility to set and change parameters. For us, a focus on prioritising new stock combined with best sellers is generating beneficial results.”
