These terms are sounds difficult for newbie
What is Up sell ?
These product are items that customers would ideally buy instead of the product they’re viewing. Reason could be they might be better quality, a higher profit margin, more popular, etc. Upsell products appear on the product info page according to magento default theme.
what is cross sell?
Cross sell items appear in the shopping cart section. When a customer navigates to the shopping cart. This can happen automatically after adding a product. The cross-sells block displays a selection of items marked as cross-sells to the product added in the cart. They are a bit like impulse buys e.g. different magazines, candy at the cash registers in grocery stores.
what is related product?
Related products appear in the product info page in the right column. Related products are meant to be purchased in addition to the item the customer is viewing.
