How to Display Best Selling Products in Magento 2?

Not all products in an ecommerce store sell equally. There are always some products that sell more than others. We call them best selling products. These products are often the backbone of a store that generate maximum revenue. In fact, the 80-20 rule applies here too. 80% of a store’s revenue comes from 20% of the products.

As a Magento 2 merchant, you would want to make the most of your best selling products. One way to do this is to display them separately on the frontend to attract visitor’s attention. Prospective customers have a high confidence level on a store’s best selling products. They tend to click and buy the products that are already trusted by others.

How to Find Best Selling Products in Magento 2?

You must first find out what your best selling products are. By default, Magento, as every other ecommerce platform, keeps track of your products, sales, invoices, taxes, and other information. These statistics are necessary and helpful to measure your store’s performance and make business decisions.

Quick Note: Have a look at FME Product Slider Magento 2 extension which enables you to display Best Selling Products in a Slider in your store.

To find what products have been selling the most, follow these steps.
  • On your Magento 2 admin, go to Reports -> Statistics -> Refresh Statistics.
  • Select all the products in the grid and choose Refresh Lifetime Statistics from the dropdown.
  • Click Submit.
