Want to learn how to add popular products on your WooCommerce product pages?
Showing popular products on your online store pages is a proven way to boost sales. This is why Amazon, Walmart, and all other big stores have a best-seller widget.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to display popular products on your WooCommerce product pages.
Why Need to Display Popular Products in WooCommerce?
Displaying your popular WooCommerce products is an easy way to boost sales on your online store.
These products are already proven to convert, so by getting more eyeballs on these products you’ll easily generate more sales.
You can even create a separate popular WooCommerce products page, just like how Amazon has their own bestseller charts.
That being said, let’s see how you can add popular products to your WooCommerce product pages.
How to Find What WooCommerce Products Are Popular
First thing you need to do is find out what products are popular and selling well. With a WordPress plugin, you can see all of your WooCommerce analytics data and which products are the most popular.
MonsterInsights is the best analytics plugin for WordPress. It can quickly show you the performance of your online store and which products are the most popular.
After you’ve integrated WooCommerce with MonsterInsights, you can see your most popular products by going to Insights » Reports and then click on the eCommerce tab.
Here you can see which products are getting you the most revenue, how many units you’ve sold, and overall stats about your store’s performance.
Another great feature of MonsterInsights is you can simply add your popular products to the end of your blog posts to boost sales.
To do this go to Insights » Popular Posts and then click the ‘Popular Products’ menu option.
On this screen you can customize how your popular products will display.
You have control over the design, the layout option, how many products are featured, etc.
Once you’ve made changes make sure to click ‘Save Changes’ at the top of the screen, and your popular products will automatically display at the end of your posts.
Now, we’ll show you two of the most popular methods to display popular WooCommerce products, beyond simply adding them to your blog posts.
Method 1: Using SeedProd to Create a Popular Products Page
SeedProd is the best drag and drop WordPress page builder in the market used by over 1 million websites.
With this plugin, you can simply add popular products to your WooCommerce product pages and create landing pages for your products to improve your conversions.
It has a lot of WooCommerce blocks that let you easily create and customize your product pages.
Firstly you need to install the SeedProd plugin.
Note: there is a free version of SeedProd that you can use, but we’ll be using the Pro version since it has more features.
Upon activation, you need to navigate to SeedProd » Settings and enter your license key. This information is under your account on the SeedProd website.
Once you’ve done that, visit SeedProd » Templates.
There are tons of pre-made page templates you can use, or you can select the ‘eCommerce Thank You Page’ template that we’re using for this tutorial.
Once you’ve found the template you want to use, hover over it and click the ‘Checkmark’ icon.
You need to give your page a name, then click the ‘Save and Start Editing the Page’ button.
Then, you’ll be taken to the page editor screen. Every element of the page can be completely customized with the drag and drop builder.
On the left-hand menu, you’ll see a block section labeled ‘WooCommerce’.
Select the ‘Products Grid’ option and drag it over to your page.
Note: you’ll see a ‘Best Selling Products’ option you can use, however, we’re going to create a custom list of products using our MonsterInsights data.
Next, click the ‘Gear’ icon to bring up the ‘Block Settings’ menu.
Now, under the ‘Query’ category, turn the ‘Select By SKU’ toggle on.
Next, select the SKUs that match your popular products.
To select several products that aren’t listed together, hold the ‘Command’ key on Mac, or hold the ‘CTRL’ key on PC.
Once you’ve completed adding your popular products, make sure you click ‘Save’ to save your changes. To publish this page live, click the arrow next to ‘Save’ and select ‘Publish’.
You’ve now added your most popular products to a unique popular products page.
With SeedProd, you can make nearly endless customizations to this page to improve the conversions.
You can also add this page to your WordPress navigation menu to encourage your visitors to browse your popular products.
