The Suggestor Plugin is a product recommendation system for nopCommerce 3.30. The plugin calculates product recommendations for customers based on other customers’ reviews. The biggest values to your ecommerce are:
1. Increased sales through personalized recommendations
2. Personalized service to customers increases user experience
The plugin uses Collaborative Filtering to determine customers that are similar to each other based on their reviews. The implementation has been tested with a 10-fold cross validation for the MovieLens database.
The recommendations are calculated with a ScheduledTask. The task is configurable like other tasks so you can choose how often you want the recommendations to be re-calculated.
There are two primary parameters to the algorithm:
1. UserN: The number of similar customers to find for each customer. This gives control over how broad/narrow you want the recommendations to be.
2. ProductN: How many recommendations the customer is provided with.
The plugin is theme-compatible and has a widget that can be mapped to different zones.
