What are Up-selling and Cross-selling?

Up-selling is a sales technique used to get a customer to spend more by buying an upgraded or expensive version of what’s being purchased.

Cross-selling is a sales technique used to get a customer to spend more by buying a related product of what’s being purchased.

For example,

If a customer comes to buy a smartphone of 10K and you suggest him a smartphone of 20k better than the previous smartphone, then it is called upselling.

A customer comes to buy a Smartphone and you also suggest a phone guard and phone cover with Smartphone, it is called cross-selling.

Why Up-sell and Cross-sell?
