Current User

Recommended for you is an individual recommender that provides individualized product recommendations for a specific user. The default 'testUser' is the ID that Litmus uses to recognize activity when opening the shop via the Events Monitor. You can insert specific userIDs here for testing if you wish.

Days Span

You can also alter the days span for the recommender. Simply slide the slider and set it to the time period required - 24 hours, 7 days or 30 days are the most popular.

Select Attributes

Now you can select the attributes you want to include in the API response - typically these are everything you want to include in your design in your email or on site. Standard fields include:

  • Product image
  • Product title
  • Product URL
  • Price
  • Sale price
  • Quantity/availability
  • Gender/category information


You can apply filters to the recommender to filter out any unwanted products. For example, you may want to only show products from 'Womenswear' or filter out sale items.

Once you are happy with your configuration, click on the 'CREATE RECOMMENDER' green button. You will see a popup asking for a description for your recommender. Insert a description and click save - this will create your recommender.
