This addon will help you configure related products. Related could be useful when you have many products with similar characteristics so customer can easily find the most suitable ones. It also configures a product and its accessories.
This also could be achieved using blocks. But the main difference of the addon is that it creates bidirectional/cross links. So if you link product A to product B, product B will be linked to A automatically.
Compatible with ALL CS-Cart versions (v2.x.x, v3.0.x, v4.0.x, 4.1.x, 4.2.x)

"I can do this using blocks, why do I need this addon?"
- This addon sets bidirectional links between products. So if you set the product B to be related for product A, then product A will be set as related for product B automatically.
"What does "Select the product links type" option mean?"
- This option allows you to select between these two link types. First one is cross-linked so if you add product B, C, D to A as related then each of these products will have three others as related. The other one is bi-directional, so you will have only product A as related for B, C, D
"Why is the related tab not displayed in the customer area?"
