Final thoughts on Korean ecommerce product pages
Cross selling makes a big difference on your product page, but how effective is the recommendation system at work behind the cross selling app? Specialized systems for Fashion & Beauty ecommerce can cross sell more because their recommendations are more accurate. While some K-fashion brands develop the advanced recommendation systems inhouse, others use lesser unspecialized systems.
