Pet Products algorithm is developed to automatically identify customer's pet or pets, their food and toys preferences, and specify product recommendations based on this data.

Following steps are covered

 

Add Additional Parameters to Your XML-file

For the algorithm to work properly every product in your XML Product Feed should have additional properties:

  • pet type this product is targeted at;
  • product purchase frequency;
  • pet age.

This data should be included into the XML-file in the form of specific product parameters and send to REES46.
