OnTap When You Last Bought

When You Last Bought is a Magento 2 module that shows a logged in customer when they last bought a product. This is useful to help encourage repeat purchases, and to increase average order value.


  • Displays a block on the product page indicating when the logged in customer last purchased the product
  • Handles all product types

Make a backup!

Direct installation of Magento extensions onto your production web site is not recommended or supported. We advise you to install this on a development version of your web site first to ensure correct operation with your particular Magento installation.

Customer Journey

When a user logs in, our module determines which product SKUs the customer has purchased in the past and gets the dates of purchase. This information is then used to display a message on the product page:

OnTap When You Last Bought

In the example above you can see a message "You last bought this product on 10 Apr 2018".

Handling grouped, configurable and bundle products

In the cases of some peculiar product types, the main product SKU displayed at the front-end is not necessarily the SKU used on the order, this is because the associated simple product is purchased.

  • For grouped and configurable product types, if one of the associated simple products (i.e. size/colour combination) has been purchased, then the 'You last bought this product on...' message is displayed.

  • For bundle product types, if the bundle itself has been purchased (rather than the associated simple products), then the 'You last bought this product on...' message is displayed.

General Configuration

To access the configuration of the module, select Stores → Configuration → On Tap → When You Last Bought from within the admin panel.

OnTap When You Last Bought

To start using this module, you'll need to Enable it. This allows you to enable or disable the functionality on a per-website basis.

The Limit number of orders searched feature is quite useful if you have a large number of orders in Magento (either in general or per user). This can significantly boost performance, and ensure that the extra processing done after the customer logs in does not incur a delay in the customer journey.

If this field is empty (which is the default), then all orders from the logged in customer are considered. Otherwise, if you enter a number, then only that number of most recent orders are ever considered.

The Limit number of products stored setting limits the number of products stored when a customer logs in. Again, if this field is empty (which is the default), then all products from their orders (subject also to the order limit above), are considered. Otherwise, if you enter a number, then only that number of products are ever considered.
