Based on what products you have linked as upsell/cross-sell within each Product setting in WooCommerce, the Email Customizer pro plugin will recommend products in the email.

If you haven’t set products in the Product setting, the plugin won’t be able to show recommended products. Refer to this doc on setting up upsells, and cross-sells.
