I’m kind of new with magento and I'm making an up-sell for some of my products, and they are showing at the end of the page, but they are without the price, and I want to know how can I make magento to show the prices of the up-sells products that are linked, also if there’s a possibility to show the description of the products too that will be great.

Thanks in advantage

    1. I understand nothing, maybe add a few screenshots to explain, 2. UPDATE. Magento 1.5 is a big security problem! – Fabian Blechschmidt Aug 26 '13 at 22:04

for up-sell product description you can get product id from $_link object

and you want product description so you can get from


and you can get description from $test


and you can get price from $_link object

it may help you

  • Word of caution: I would advise against reloading the product model in this scope as it loads the entire product model... May negatively impact performance. – philwinkle Aug 27 '13 at 5:01

    Besides you shouldn't load a model in a view template file anyhow.... It's against best practice. Cheers. – philwinkle Aug 27 '13 at 5:01
  • without reloading product object how we can achieve that? – Keyur Shah Aug 27 '13 at 5:05
  • because in $_link object you can get short description not description – Keyur Shah Aug 27 '13 at 5:05
  • Well there are a few ways. Link is from a collection and assigned in a loop. Rewrite the collection that link comes from and use addAttributeToSelect('description'). Another way would be to call getResource()->getBackend()and load the description into the currently loaded model. – philwinkle Aug 27 '13 at 5:22

look into the file yourtemplate/catalog/product/list/upsell.phtml you will find code for displaying price.

The code to display price of upsell product is

<?php echo $this->getPriceHtml($_link, true, '-upsell') ?

Insert the code in upsell.phtml and you will see the price of your upsells product
