The Bestsellers page including shortcode, will be created automatically when you activate the plugin. Thanks to the [bestsellers] bestsellers shortode you can show the list of best sellers in the whole shop.
Pagination for products will also be managed automatically by the plugin.
With the “Bestsellers shown” entry, you can set the number of best selling products to show. Like in the example below, it is set to show 100 products.
Only the shop administrator can track and see the number of sales for each of the products available in the bestellers list.
On the contrary, by enabling the “Show ranking indicator” option, a sales index will be shown for all users accessing this page.
This way, a sales index will be added to all products. This index will show if there has been an increase or decrease in a number of sales in a specific time-lapse. You can set this time frame in the option Bestseller Update Time.
- 1 day: a comparison will be made between sales registered the day before and two days before the current date.
- 2 days: a comparison will be made between 2 days before current day and the previous 2 days.
- 3 days: a comparison will be made between 3 days before current day and the previous 3 days.
- 7 days: a comparison will be made between the 7 days before current day and the previous 7 days.
- Solar Month: a comparison will be made between a current solar month and previous month.
For example, today is 15th May: the plugin compares the number of sales made since 1st May with those of the entire previous month, April.
- Solar Year: a comparison will be made between a current solar year and previous one.
For example, today is 15th May 2018: the plugin compares the number of sales made since 1st January 2018 with those of the entire previous year, 2017.
The plugin allows you to show the best seller position of that particular product, on the product detail page, both for “Bestsellers” of the whole store and category “Bestsellers”.
These links take your customers to sales placings: a general placing showing best sellers in the entire shop or category placings.
You can activate these ranking links in product or category page: “Show Category Top 100 link in Product Page” and “Show Category Top 100 link in Category Pages”.
Enable the option Show “Best Seller” badge to enable the badge Bestsellers on the products of your shop.
The badge will be shown to your customers like in the following image:
The colors and text of the badge can be changed from the specific options in the plugin settings page.
In the product detail page, you can add the “Bestseller” seal provided by the plugin, or upload any other image that you created. You can enable the “Show Seal in Best Sellers” in the settings panel.
The seal will be seen by your customers like in the following image:
Enable users to use the RSS service in the “Bestsellers” page. Access the plugin settings panel and enable the option Show RSS link.
Your customers will be able to click on the RSS button to always be up to date on your products.
The widget included in YITH WooCommerce Best Sellers displays best-seller products on the entire shop. With this widget, you can select two types of displays, one based on the number of sales, the other one based on publishing date.
Then there is the widget YITH WooCommerce Best Sellers Categories which shows a complete list of all categories in the shop that contains at least one of the bestseller products.
In case you only want to show specific product categories (among those already existing in the shop) type them into the widget field Categories. Which you will be able to find under Appearance -> Widgets.
The shortcode [bestsellers_slider] allows adding a slider with all the best sellers of your shop on any page of your site. To enter the shortcode, all you have to do is to click on the dedicated icon that you find in the WordPress editor (visual mode).

You can edit the title shown just before the slider starts moving. Edit the text in the plugin settings panel, under the option “Slider Title”.
