★ Save time and make more money with the most powerful recommendation engine on Shopify ★

The Bold Brain is a FREE app that analyzes thousands of data points on your store including past orders, customers and products. It then uses this data to make your store smarter, offering recommendations to your customers automatically through a Related Products panel on your storefront. You can also show a panel of Most Purchased Products based off of your top sellers. The app's only goal is to make you more money.

Save hours of your own time while increasing sales: The Bold Brain will personalize your recommendations based on information gathered from your customers.

The app also integrates with the world-famous Product Upsell app to create personalized offers for your store.

How does this work?

  1. Brain analyzes your store's past orders and products

  2. Heuristics are used to evaluate which items are often purchased together

  3. Offers are recommended for you, along with an IQ score that shows how confident Brain is that the recommendation will work.

  4. You approve the recommendation, which automatically sets up the offer in Product Upsell and begins displaying it on your store in a single click!

Brain integrates with the #1 subscription order app on Shopify, Recurring Orders.

Here's how it works:

  1. Brain analyzes your store's past orders and products

  2. Automated calculations are performed to find products that are often purchased at specific intervals.

  3. Brain calculates an IQ score that determines confidence that the product would be a good candidate for a subscription.

  4. You can accept the recommendation and with a single click the product is added to a Recurring Orders subscription group.

Check out how one store increased their sales over $11,000 in a few weeks, by using the Brain!

The Bold Brain will:

  • Learn how your customers like to shop on your store

  • Show recommendations to customers based on products that are often purchased together

  • Display a widget containing your store's most popular products on your homepage (or whichever page you want)

  • Match products to offer as cross-sells based on sales data collected from your customers

  • Approve recommendations with the click of a single button, setting them up in seconds and making it easier to show beautiful, personalized offers to your customers

App seems pretty good so far. Had a good experience of support from Abhijit too after a minor glitch a few weeks in. I'm not seeing great returns on the upsells as yet but it's early days and I guess it will get better at knowing what to upset over time. Worth giving it six months I think - nothing to lose.


Can't this app to work properly.


Won't install, says "whoops, an error has occurred".


This app should be called 'half a brain'.

I already had the Product Upsell app installed when I got notification that I could add Bold Brain for free. Here's been my experiences:

1. It makes recommendations without looking at what you already have upsells for in the product upsell app. i.e. It may make recommendations for upsells that you already have in place.

2. I don't know how it makes some of the recommendations it does. About two-thirds of what it tells me, I have to tell it to exclude the recommendation because the products do not go together at all.

If you do decide to install the app, you need to go back regularly to see if the recommendations are performing especially since they go towards your monthly view totals, which means you may have to upgrade your upsell plan.

In the end, you are smarter than the Brain. Remember that.

On a side note, in general, I have been disappointed with Bold's customer service on this app and all their others that I have installed (these two plus product discount and sales motivator). They never admit anything is a problem on their end and always blame it on some other app I have in my store, Shopify, or operator error. I have only ever had them admit once they were aware of the problem I was inquiring about and was told they would get back with me. That was 6 weeks ago. I really wanted to use their upsell after checkout app, but since I've had the upsell app script cause my store to hang up and not add products to the cart correctly, I'm not willing to risk it.


Within a few hours of writing this review, I received an email from Bold asking for more details. I ended up having a 45 minute conversation with a Bold Commerce representative where I talked about this app, a few of their others and their company culture of how technical support requests are handled. I felt like he listened to me and what I had to say, although I'm still a bit skeptical about whether any changes will be made. I have asked Bold to stay in touch with me and let me know if changes are made, in which case, I will be happy to update this review.


Great app for analytical purposes!
