In this section, you can also choose the text to show for the best-seller badge in the option Badge text and the title of the best-seller slider in the option Slider title.
You can apply a badge to your best-seller products by enabling the option Show “Best Seller” badge that you can find in the Settings > General options tab.
From the Display options section, you can define the number of best-seller products to show by entering the value in the option Bestsellers shown. In the example below, it is set to show 100 products.
If you want to show the “best seller” badge only on the top 100 products, enable the option “Best seller” badge only for Top 100.
You can show the best-seller ranking position on the product edit page. To do it, you must enable the option Show position in product page.
This is an example of what it will look like.
You can also show the link of the Top 100 category both on the product detail and/or category pages. To do it, you will only need to enable the options Show category Top 100 link in product page and Show category Top 100 in category pages.
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.
Yet, as an admin, you can also see the number of sales for every product on the Best seller page.
Finally. if you want your users to use the RSS service on the “Bestsellers” page, enable the option Show RSS link.
In this way, they will be able to click on the RSS button to always be up to date on your products.
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”.
In the section Best seller seal, you can enable the option Show Seal in Best Sellers to add the “Bestseller” seal provided by the plugin, or upload any other image that you created, on the product pages.

- Below “Add to cart” button
- Below summary
- Align: set the seal alignment by selecting
- Display only for Top 100: enable this option if you want to show the seal only on products in the general Top 100.
