Magento offers setting up several types of product relations that you might find useful for your store.

You can set up associated products, upsell and cross-sell products, and related products.

This tutorial will show you how to set up related products.

Related products will be shown next to the product that a customer is viewing at that point and the purpose is, of course, to make it easier for a customer to choose and buy additional products related to his interests.

So let’s see how to add related products from the Magento Admin Panel.

You should navigate to Catalog and Manage Products and from there access your entire product list.

Take a look:

Magento main menu

Next, you will see your store’s products listed and what you should do is search for the product that you want to add related products to.

To showcase how we do it, we chose to find one cosmetic product and add to it different related products that customers will see when browsing our store.

We found our product searching by an SKU number.

Once we found the product, we clicked on it and waited for the product’s General information to appear.

Notice the left-hand side menu and choose Related Products (click on the image below for a better overview).

Product general information

Once you have clicked on Related Products menu item you should see a list of related products.

You can quickly check whether you already have some related products added, by choosing Yes from the dropdown menu and then clicking Search.

Since we don’t have any products yet and still need to add them, we will see that there are No records found.

To search for products, we will use SKU number again.

Please note that now you have to mark Any from the dropdown menu in order to browse through all of your store’s products and find the ones that you want to add as related.

Simply, enter SKU number and click the Search orange button on your right-hand side.

Once the product is found, simply mark the checkbox next to it (see the screenshot).

Searching for products to relate in Magento

Now continue by repeating the same procedure to add more related products.

Find a product by its name, ID or SKU number, click Search and mark it.

Note that at this point, once you start searching for a new product you won’t be able to see the previous one.

But no sweat, if you marked the checkbox next to it, it is saved and will show up in your list eventually, after you click save in the end.

On your right-hand side, you have the option to set up an order of appearance by entering numbers in the checkboxes.

See the screenshot for a better preview of the options on the right side of the screen.

Reordering related products appearanceAnd this is how the products will appear once you’re done adding them.

Now all you have to do is locate the orange Save Category button in the upper-right part of the screen and save your changes.

Bra-vo!
