Category Page Recommendations

Here is a list of things we recommend you to go through to make sure your recommendations on your category page are working as expected.


Before you start testing your solution from Hello Retail, please make sure that you are logged into your account at:

After you have logged in, please go to your website address to start the review.

Note When you enable product recommendation boxes on your website, they won't be live for all customers before you click "Make Live". The benefit is that you can review it, without the boxes being visible to your website visitors.

Note also, that some browsers have limitations on how they treat attempts at "Cross-Site Tracking", so it might become necessary to adjust this in your browser, in case you are not able to see the HR panel widget.

Step 1

Visit a category page on your website.

Note If you have less than 10 products on the category page, we won't show any recommendations.

Step 2

The next step is to enable Live Test of your recommendation boxes.

  1. Make sure you are at a category page.
  2. Click the Hello Retail icon on the bottom left side to open the Hello Retail panel.
  3. Navigate to Product Boxes, and toggle "Show" on for the recommendation boxes you want to display.
  4. Close the widget panel by clicking the Hello Retail icon again
  5. Refresh the page in your browser (On Mac: CMD+R / On Windows: CTRL+R).

Step 3

If you have a recommendation that includes a slider, make sure it is working properly.

Step 4

Verify that colors match the colors of your site.

Step 5

Verify that prices are displayed the same as the rest of the website.

Step 6

Verify the placement of the boxes and that they are placed correctly.

Step 7

Verify that badges are shown correctly (e.g. new/ on sales).


Step 8

If your recommendation boxes include buy button functionality, then please verify that the buy buttons work as intended.

Note If there are multiple variants of a product, the buy button should redirect to the master product.


Check buy button function

Step 9

Make sure the right products are shown on the right category page.

Step 10

Verify that the category recommendation works properly on top-level & sub-levels (only if applicable)

Final Step

When you have checked that every recommendation box on the category page works as expected, you can now push your recommendations live.

You do this by opening the Hello Retail widget panel from where you navigate to Product Boxes and here you select the recommendations you want to push live and click the "Make Live" button.
