Common examples include:
**Up-selling** – Presents newer or better versions of the product. For example, when displaying a television, display newer models in the same product line.
**Cross-selling** – Shows related products. For example, when displaying a shirt, show other shirts by the same designer.
**Accessories** – Encourage the customer to add related or required accessories to a shopping cart. Examples include spare batteries, memory cards, or cables for electronics.
**Warranties** –. Allow dependent items, such as product warranties, to be sold with a product.
The solution can be implemented to display product associations for example on category, product, shopping cart, checkout, or receipt pages. How association types are displayed is implementation-specific. The types of associations (association groups) available to a Merchandiser in the Catalog UI should be set up to match this.
The APIs for working with associations are described in [Related entries](🔗).
