It's easy to set up and configure but could do with more config options for 5 stars
For me it needs:
1. Ability to specify placement of title and image in relation to each other
2. Ability to specify size of image
3. Ability to hide price, add to cart, add to wishlist
Also it seem to depend on the url path to get the category. If you have a URL http://domain/product-name.html then the related products block doesn't show.
Good extension Great cust service Needed custom work)
Bought this extension and it needed some custom work for it to fit our magento template. We worked with Aheadworks and Vitaly and their customer service was second to none. Extension looks great and we are very happy with it, may need some custom work for some customers and extension is basic out of the box but with a little tweaking it has come out great and saves us alot of time as we have two blocks on product pages that would have had to be inputted manually so saves lots of time and effort, Working with aheadworks was a pleasure and we couldnt fault their help.
This extension saves me so much time!
I used to spend a fair amount of time setting up related products, crosssell and upsell products manually. Now I don't need to worry about it. One thing I would love is a bit more flexibility in choosing which products to relate to. But apart from that, it can only get better!
An amazing module!
We've got quite an extensive catalog, which is also frequently updated. This Auto Related plug-in did a great job for us, saving us a PLENTY of time on products management. Couldn't be satisfied more.
Not as flexible as stated. in case of multiple product categories, it would be nice if user could indicate which categoriy to pick related prodcts from. More manual adjustment of results is highly desired! Also different ways of listing related products would be interesting (table-style for example)
Ultimate Sales Driver
I've purchase more than a few extensions from Aheadworks and this is a MUST have. Not only its reasonably priced, clean coded and super fast, the flexibility is awesome. If you can think of a scenario "if this, then do that" this extension will accomplish it. A must have for any Magento install.
Great Extension. Really customize what your customers are viewing to buy.
This module provides so many ways to show and customize related products blocks that we likely never repeated yet. It's great for customers. Really appreciate it.
Works as it intended
This extension saved us a lot of trouble from having to manually set up related products and cross-sell products. It didn't work with our customized theme at first but the purchased units for help was very professional and knew what they were doing. Highly satisfied.
A brilliant solution!
This module was of great help for our store. We've built quite an extensive catalog over time, and we needed some tool to handle related items suggestions for us.
This Automatic Related Products by AW did the trick for us, strongly recommended!
Makes it easy
This saves lots of time and allows us to ensure that we have products that are related showing. We expect it to increase our sales. Definitely recommend!
More than satisfied with this extension
I was impressed by the this module's advertised capabilities, and it proved to deliver every single thing when I finally ordered it.
Took me some time to get through the configuration - but that was expected.
Easy to use and convenient
I have found this extension easy to use and very useful. It really saved me a lot of time in setting up my new store.
However, there is one downfall, it means I cannot utilise existing email functionality to cross sell related products as there is no ability to insert a widget in the emails.
It would be useful to incorporate the ability to utilise the module and make it accessible in the transactional emails functionality.
Good Price, Great support, solid extension.
Indispensable for big stores
This module is all about flexibility. You can get almost whatever you want if you just put some thinking into configuring rules.
The beautiful thing is, you only have do it once. Set up the rules - and never again will you need to worry about setting up related products listing.
Expectedly, as any other frontend module, the ARP 2 took us some styling works to get it play nice with our custom theme - but that was quite an easy task.
A lot of work was necessary in my case to adapt the extension to my need but it was definitely worth it !
Works immediately! Does exactly what it is supposed to do. love it!
Just one missing feature: being able to have a rule in %. Like display products with price higher than 10% of current product
This easy to use extension will have you "merchandising as easy as 1,2,3. I had a bit of a problem installing, but AW support showed me what I was doing wrong and everything is running smoothly now. I will definitely recommend this in the future.
A Brilliant Plugin!
Incredibly easy to setup, customise and output. And for those wanting custom block placement this may be helpful: http://forum.aheadworks.com/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=3177&hilit=cms&sid=0671668d9ea23852f299adb467c4632b
This is one of those features that should be properly built in natively with Magento in the way AheadWorks have done with this extension IMO. AW have done a great job here.
Very slow work , i have 70.000 products and 1000+ attrebutes
General Manager / Magento Administrator
This extension is absolutely fantastic. I don't think people understand how versatile of an extension this is. You select related products by creating logic. The best part is that it is highly customizable since you can use unlimited rules on every attribute. You can use rules like is, contains, does not contain, is greater than... etc. Could not be more thrilled with this product.
And, since I have a customized theme that caused this extension to not be displayed, the aheadWorks team customized my theme further to allow this to work perfectly!
The automated related products extension has really saved us time and effort to manually add products every time a new product is added onto our system. Its a great extension to aid automation on our processes and reduce manual labour.
Easy to install and use. Great results
This is the perfect extension for a shop with lots of items in each category. The results are excellent. We have used a number of Aheadworks extensions and found them all to be excellent.
Works immediately. Not having to manually related products = priceless.
Pas simple à mettre en oeuvre
Pas très simple à configurer mais redoutable d’efficacité si on se donne le temps de bien l'intégrer et configurer.
Prévoyez un bon temps de reflexion afin de bien en optimiser les possibilités
Fácil de instalar y configurar. Gracias
What a great extension! Instal time; only 100 seconds!
Worksr great and easy to use.
Saves tons of time
With a catalog of over 5000 items, this extension saved us many, many boring hours!
what i have been looking for
This new version of Automatic Related Products makes it possible to diplay the related products in shopping cart which is what I have been looking for in a long time.There were some issues but they fixed them and it all worked out. Great extension. This extension surely boosts the sales of your website.
Works great & a huge timesaver for adding related products for larger sites.
Works great, I just wish...
I love this extension, but if you don't use "random" for the products that are to be displayed, then you generally will get the same small sampling of products.
Random on the other hand always changes each time you refresh the screen.
Not a huge deal, but it would be nice if either random did not change on each refresh or that the non-random option displayed more variety across products.
Otherwise, I'm very happy with the ext and the service!
pefect extention & Support
it's always nice to integrate aheadworks extentions. arp 2 extention works well, and the support is top!
Great extension, makes related products so much eassier!
This product has been a life saver. With over 12k products in our catalog it has saved our lives attempting to set up related products for every sku in our system!
A TIME SAVER
Aaaaahhhhhhhhhh a breath of fresh air, this module is soooooooooooooo good, even for small sites.
Easy to install, configure, use
No problems installing. Very flexible and powerful. Aheadworks is an excellent vendor.
Display related products in no time
To sum it up it in one single word: "Fantastic!"
Makes life easy
I bought this extension because i have so many products that it is no workable to do related products by hand. I use custom templates with magento and this extension didn't work perfect right out of the box because of the custom template. I have send a support question about this and within two days the problem was solved. The aftersales support of Aheadworks is great and the extension is also working great this safes me a lot of work and makes my life a lot easier
Bought this exentension and is running on 1.6.1. I love it ! Works out of the box smoothly.
Very good extension, would be really great to display products in a random order.
Works well out of the box
If you need something with little configuration and a simple way to relate products on your site this will do the job.
Very good one
Flexible, fast and powerful extension, must have + great support = ahedworks ;)
good extension, and easy setup and get better useablity for customer
i bought this extension few hours before.
It's a very good extension even if there is no documentation at all, is easy to install and configure.
Just a missing feature, would be very usefull to have the ability to display products in random order.
