Hotcakes Top 10 Products Module

Overview

The top 10 products module is a very quick and easy way to instantly upsell customers when they arrive on a page where this module is placed.  Like anyone else, your customers don't want to think they're the first person to buy something.  You don't want to be the guinea pig.  This module helps to tell your customers that the products showcased are already well-vetted by other customers in the store.

Requirements

The following prerequisites will be necessary to accomplish the goals of this article:

Getting Started

The information provided here is based upon the default configuration of Hotcakes and the default viewset. Your views may have more or less functionality, depending on how it was implemented by your technical team.

Top 10 Products Module

The top 10 products module is not placed for you anywhere on your site. If you wish to use it, you should add it to one or more pages, as desired. When you add this module to a page, it will begin working immediately without any configuration required.

The default view may or may not be how you want to display your top 10 list.  If you want to highlight your top products in a more engaging way, your design team can easily update the view to mirror your expectations.

The top 10 status is based upon the sales of the various products in your store since it first launched.
