X-Cart Related products section will be available in Store Manager for X-Cart as a default option.
Online store can have products related to each other. Let's say a customer wants to buy a cell phone, most likely one would like to purchase a charging device, memory card and a car kit along with it.
So would be good to show customer these products as well. X-Cart Related products provide more convenient way for store visitors to find what they would like to see, or maybe wouldn't, but what will be useful for them.
It does increase sales, since customers may purchase even more than they planned before.
