Widget: Frame with product to choose

Widget Frame with product to choose allows you to select independently products to your dynamic email. Ordinary product frame works on the basis of automatic placement of products from an abandoned cart or last visit, depending on which type of recommendation you choose.

What need to do?

Add an XML file to the SALESmanago system. Once the file is added correctly, you will gain an access to the product gallery. You can get there through the widget. You can choose products to your email.

How it works?

After you choose products, the frame will contain images of the chosen products together with standard information about them that is included in the XML file (name, category, description, and price).

Benefits:

  • selecting products to your dynamic emails all by yourself,
  • the possibility of offering your customers products that they have not got a chance to see (news or customized products),
  • building the atmosphere of trust.
