Overview

Mass Product Linker

Adds mass actions for cross-selling, up-selling, and relating products in Magento's manage product grid.

Features

  • Cross-sell products to each other (two-way)
  • Mass cross-sell products to other products (one-way)
  • Remove all cross-sells from several products at once
  • Stop cross-selling products to each other, but leave other cross-sells from these products untouched
  • Do all of the above for up-sells and related products, too
  • All mass actions can be independently activated or deactivated in Magento's system configuration

Installation

Install via Magento Connect. Make sure to refresh Magento's cache after installation (System => Cache Management).

Usage

After installation, new options will be available in the Action drop-down menu of the manage products grid. The new actions are divided in three groups: cross-sell, up-sell, and related. These are three ways how Magento can link products to each other. In each of these groups are up to four actions.

Cross-selling

Let's assume you've selected the two products toothbrush and toothpaste in your „manage products“ grid. If you choose „Cross-sell to each other” and click submit, toothbrush will cross-sell to toothpaste and toothpaste will cross-sell to toothbrush. You can cross-sell up to 50 products to each other which means 2,450 new cross-sell relations at once! But that many cross-sells probably don't make sense...

Now let's assume you want these two products to cross-sell to floss but not the other way round. To do that, select toothbrush and toothpaste and choose „Add cross-selling...“. A new input field will appear where you have to enter the ID of floss (not the SKU – the ID is usually in the second column from the left). Both toothbrush and toothpaste will now cross-sell to floss, but floss won't cross-sell to toothbrush or toothpaste. If you want to cross sell to more than one product at once, you can enter multiple IDs separated by commas.

Say that you've changed your mind for some reason and don't want to cross-sell toothbrush and toothpaste to each other any more. Just select these two products, select “Stop cross-selling to each other” and click submit. Toothbrush won't cross-sell to toothpaste anymore. Please note that this doesn't affect other cross-sells of both products. That is, both will still cross-sell to floss. This action only removes all cross-sell relations among the products you've selected, all other cross-sells remain the same.

If you want to remove all cross-relations for one or more products, select these products and choose “Completely remove cross-selling”.

Up-selling and related products

These mechanisms for up-selling and related products are exactly the same as for cross-sell. Note that some actions are disabled by default because up-selling two products to each other probably doesn't make sense.

Enabling and disabling features

You can enable and disable mass actions in the System => Configuration part of the admin interface. MassProductLinker adds a new section at the bottom of the Catalog page. Each mass action can be individually enabled or disabled.

Mass Product Linker 5 5 14 14
Work Like a Charm! I was a little reluctant when decided to install the extension as it didn't show compatibility with my Magento Community 1.9.1. But our business need tons of links, so I went for it. Installation was super easy. Work like a charm! And, you have all control of the config. Great thanks to the developer! May 22, 2015
Extremely time-saving and well-made extension I am very much suprised that this great extension does not seem to have the attention yet that it deserves. With this review I am trying to do my part to change that. I am running "Mass Product Linker" on Magento 1.9 smoothly. Easy to use, nice configuration options, for free. The extension does exactly what it is supposed to do: to provide a quick way to bulk-update cross-sell, up-sell and accessory products. As soon as the assortiment of your Magento shop grows you will need this extension to save you a huge amount of administration time. Thanks a lot for developing this nice piece of software! March 8, 2015
Very Easy Very Easy! Very Easy! Very Easy! Very Easy! Very Easy! February 28, 2015
Fantastic Work Installed flawlessly, works flawlessly. Can't believe this is a free extension, it should be integrated into Magento as standard. Well done to the developers December 5, 2014
Saves us a lot of work! Although you might expect that this function is default for Magento, we are very glad that we have this extension installed. It saves us a lot of work! Installation was a piece of cake and it works really simple, also very good that you can change the settings what functions you want to use (or not). I had a question about a function (I didn't read the manual well...) and I had an answer within a day! If this extension was $100 I also would have recommend it. August 19, 2014
Excellent!!!! OMG - the time I saved using this. It works perfectly! No issues at all. June 30, 2014
I've been looking for this for a long time! This is a great extension! Highly recommended to anyone! April 12, 2014
Worked Exactly as Described Perfect for the project I was working on when my client wanted to related different products to each other, over 300 products. Also worked perfectly on v1.8.1.0 March 24, 2014
Perfect Magento 1.8.1 Works perfect on Magento 1.8.1. Best free extension ever February 27, 2014
Great Extension! Works exactly as described and is a very useful tool. January 26, 2014

The webshop were i want to use the mass linker has about 12.000 products. There are 9 categories and 99 sub categories. Now i want to add cross- and upsell to whole categories. The problem is that my ID's aren't ascending. How can i link a whole sub category to one or more products?

For the relate option: how can i link 2 sub categories to each other without using several ID's?

Answer: 
Hi Bjorn

Unfortunately, Mass Product Linker won't let you select whole categories so it would mean a lot of manual work. I might implement this in the future but I'm not planning to do so soon.

Just one more thought: I understand that each of your sub categories must contain at least some 120 products. So you might be cross- or upselling or linking to a big number of products. If I'm calculating that right, it's a total of several million links... I have no experience with the extension or with Magento on that scale.

There are other extensions that work more like Amazon's "People who bought this also bought..." - could this be a solution for you?

Best regards

Julian

Answer: 
Hi Cristhiano,

Thanks for your feedback, glad you like the extension.

Up-sell to each other is already implemented. It's only disabled by default as it's probably not needed by many. You can enable and disable mass actions in the System => Configuration part of the admin interface. MassProductLinker adds a new section at the bottom of the Catalog page. Each mass action can be individually enabled or disabled.

Hi,

First of all I want to express my gratitude to the developer for this great extension. Thanks a lot!

The only functionality that I am missing is a "simple" remove option.

Let's imagine: product A is a cross-sell product of the products B, C, D and B is a cross-sell product of C and D. As far as I know there is no way to remove A as cross-sell product of the three products without also removing B as cross-sell product of C and D.

If in any way possible I would love to see a function that is working like the "add" function. Meaning, you select all the products that you want to have one or more cross-sells removed and then enter the IDs of those items.

Best regards from Germany!

Answer: 
Hi and thanks for your feedback and your suggestion. I understand the purpose of the feature your requesting and while it's technically quite simple I'm a bit hesitant to implement it because I want to keep my extensions as slim as possible. But if there is strong demand for the feature you described I'm surely willing to change my mind. So, anyone out the: If you want this to be implemented let me know! Thanks Julian

Hi Julian,

Thank you for your answer. Hope we will see the option of the category linker in the future. Which linker do you suggest?

Kind regards,
