Step 7: On the Linked Products tab, there are Up-sells and Cross-sells.

Up-sells are shown on the product details page. These are products you recommend or encourage visitors to purchase based on the current product they are viewing. For example, if the visitor is viewing a shoe product page, you may want to display socks or bottoms at the same page as an up-sell. In addition, the product could be more profitable, more expensive or possess a better quality to use as an up-sell.

Cross-sells are products shown with the cart and linked to the visitor's cart contents. An example could be the visitor added a mobile phone or tablet to their cart, you cross-sell and suggest that they purchase a phone cover or a portable power charger when they arrive at the cart page.
