Etsy A/B Tested And Implemented Related Products Thumbnails

Leak #3 from   |   Mar 30, 2019 Product

Showing related products might be considered popular practice by now. If a customer doesn't feel that a given product is exactly what they are looking for, somewhere at the bottom of a page they might get nudged with other hopefully relevant product options. In this leak we actually discovered that Etsy tested this precise idea and made an implementation decision in favor of showing related products. Hence Etsy learned something and so did you.
