Item associations

There are five types of associations that can be made between product items.

  • Cross-Sell
  • Up-Sell
  • Supersession
  • Alternative
  • Competitive

All association types, except supersession, allow you to associate items to other items, to categories of items, and to queries of items. Supersession supports only item-to-item associations. For example, you can create a query to retrieve all the laptops with 120 GB hard drives, and then define an up-sell to associate smaller laptops with the queried laptops.
