Up-sells are displayed on the product details page. By using this, products that you may wish to encourage users to upgrade, based on the product they are currently viewing. To make up-sells more interactive with customers, you can set up the offer in popup form instead of static product section. The offer will pop up right after customers add the favorite item to cart, introducing more options that can either be bought with or alternate the previous choice. For example, if the user is viewing the pen product listing page, you may want to display pen holder on that same page as an up-sell.

For example, if the user adds a mobile phone to their cart, you may want to suggest they purchase memory card, battery, mobile covers, charger, etc when they arrive at the cart page.

Depending on your theme template, cross-sells products display on the cart page underneath the cart products table with a thumbnail image.
