Item Attribute Model


The Item Attributes recommendation model allows you to create rule-based recommendations by applying catalog item attribute filters. This allows you to customize recommendations based on your marketing goals, whether promoting specific items or providing personalized suggestions based on user profiles.

Generic Rules

Generic rules use item attributes and are not personalized. They promote new arrivals, seasonal items, and specific brand or category promotions to a wide range of users. By leveraging item attributes, businesses align recommendations with marketing objectives and increase visibility.

Example Use Cases

  • Reveal the 'New arrivals' section.
  • Inspire with your branded collection.
  • Celebrate with our festive picks.

Targeted Rules

Targeted rules filter item attributes based on user profiles to deliver tailored suggestions aligned with each user's characteristics. This ensures relevant recommendations suitable for specific user profiles.

Example Use Cases

  • Recommend ideal jobs matched to users' skills.
  • Locate the local restaurants near your customers.
