2. Send data to Metisa

Let's give you some background on how Metisa makes recommendations. Metisa analyzes the way users interact with the items on your website. Thus, you'll have to send Metisa data in the form of <user> <action> <item>.

Let's quickly define each of these terms:

  • Users are the people that use your website
  • Items are products or services that you want to recommend and sell to customers
  • Action is interaction between your users and products. For instances, users purchase items or users click on items.

Sending data to Metisa with your website takes minutes to set up.

Follow the instructions in our WooCommerce documentation to send data to Metisa.

3. Install recommendation widgets

Configure and preview widget on Metisa dashboard
