A well-constructed product sheet ( as we have seen very important ) needs to be completed with related products and accessories, in part to offer the customer additional information that can push him to buy more products, in part because search engines like it. PrestaShop integrates the possibility of adding the products of the same category, the recently viewed products and the most purchased together (Cross selling) to the product the customer is viewing the card for. However, the modules already included are impractical and limited.

Let's see together the modules already present and some alternative solutions.

Products in the same category

A free module present in all PrestaShop installations , the module has always (already with the PrestaShop 1.6 version) suffered from problems related to the management of the Smarty cache. In the PrestaShop 1.7 version it is necessary to exclude the cache by editing the module itself, otherwise it will not display descriptions and prices . Unfortunately the module generates a degradation of the loading times . As valid as it may seem, it must be uninstalled.

It should be emphasized that displaying the products of the same category automatically is not a very useful thing, the product sheet must also be taken care of in the selection of related products.

Related Products / Accessories

Certainly the most useful native PrestaShop feature . We can add related products to the product manually - excellent for optimizing the product sheet - this function is used very often to indicate useful accessories to extend or complete the product.

Related Product Modules present on PrestaShop Addons

On PrestaShop Addons there are several modules for managing related products, we present in this short guide the ones that we believe are the most useful.

Art Brand Products

The first module we present is our Art Brand Module which allows, in addition to displaying the brand in the product sheet and the generation of a graphic and impactful brand page, to show the articles of the same manufacturer / brand in the product sheet.

Related products

The FME Modules module allows you to add product carousels to the product sheet according to different rules, thus allowing you to show similar products and increase the average value of the cart, the true purpose of related products.

Modules included in the iqit-commerce Warehouse template

The Warehouse - Responsive Prestashop template is currently one of the best (if not the best) theme for PrestaShop 1.7, already excellent with the version for PrestaShop 1.6, it extends the integration of Elementor , a very famous page builder in the world of WordPress CMS.


With the installation of the Template, iqit-commerce includes a large and valid package of modules for PrestaShop, including IQITCROSSELING , which once activated will show our customers the products sold together with the displayed product. The - products purchased together - will also be displayed in the add-to-cart confirmation pop-up and checkout. There are many similar modules, but this being already perfectly integrated into the template is excellent.

Use Elementor Page Builder

Elementor Page Builder is also available as a PrestaShop Module that can be installed on almost all PrestaShop Templates. But in the Warehouse - Responsive Pretashop template it is perfectly integrated. We can use Elementor for every aspect of our ecommerce, not only Home Page, Categories and CMS Pages, but also to edit in a graphic way - Drag and drop - the description of our product sheet.

To edit the description with Elementor, just click on " Add extended content with Elementor " the purple button under the summary (short description) of the product.

By selecting the Product List / Slider Widget and inserting it (by dragging it into a SECTION) we will be able to insert a carousel of products, both as a manual selection and as category or best-selling products and new products.

The potential of Elementor in creating the product sheet is very wide, the same Blog article you are reading was created through this Page Builder. The only limit is the imagination.
