On the Bestsellers page you can define a list of best-selling products in the selected category. You can define this product list both manually and automatically (based on sales statistics). The products may also be selected in the mixed mode, wherein part of best-selling products is defined manually, while the remaining part is defined automatically on the basis of sales statistics.

To define the best-selling product list manually, select a category the product belongs to under the Add Products section, and then highlight the product. Click the Add button. The selected product will be displayed in the Bestsellers list. If necessary, you can select several products for the Bestsellers list.

If you wish to add products to the Bestsellers category on the basis of sales statistics, please use the Bestsellers settings.

Bestsellers settings:

Add bestsellers on the basis of sales statistics

If this option is set to "Yes", products will be added automatically on the basis of sales statistics. In the storefront statistics-based bestsellers are always displayed under the products that were added to the Bestsellers categories manually.

Add bestsellers from nested categories

By default, only the products in the selected category will be added to the Bestsellers list. If the "Add bestsellers from nested categories" option is set to "Yes", best-selling products from nested categories will be taken into account as well.

To save all changes, click the Save button. The selected products will be displayed in the Bestsellers section of your online store.
