Configure Predictive Sort

Predictive Sort delivers more tailored and relevant search results to shoppers via the predictive intelligence powered by Commerce Cloud Einstein.

Important: The Predictive Sort attribute is exposed on all Primary Instance Groups. However, to use personalized product sorting, you must take extra configuration steps. Contact your Commerce Cloud B2C Commerce Customer Success Manager (CSM) to request access to Predictive Sort.
  1. Determine if you already use B2C Commerce Predictive products.
    • If you already use Predictive Recommendations, no further configuration is required.
    • If you don't use Predictive products, you must activate Predictive Sort on your instances via B2C Commerce Support and then perform a one-time export of the necessary data to Predictive Intelligence.
  2. Modify your application for caching.
