How Iconic Sales Booster works

Iconic Sales Booster for WooCommerce allows you to add the ‘Frequently Bought Together’ (also used by ecommerce giants such as Amazon) module to product pages.

Essentially, this feature will show multiple products below the main ‘Add to cart’ button that the customer can select. Once selected, a customer can then click the ‘Add Selected to Cart’ button and all of those products are then added to their cart. It even works with variable products and variations.

The products shown in the ‘Frequently Bought Together’ section are manually added by you. So if you wanted to group certain products together on individual product pages, you can. 

So, to allow customers to add multiple products to their cart in WooCommerce, all you need to do is follow the next few steps.
