Bestseller or best selling product is one of the features people tend to ask for when it comes to Magento™.

There are multiple ways to implement this feature.

The blocks below should all work from List.phtml (app\design\frontend\default\default\template\catalog\product\list.phtml).

As I had mentioned in my previous post Magento is an open source ecommerce application made with PHP and Zend Framework. Company behind it is very dedicated to this project and works a lot about it. But the missing part is the tutorials I guess. There isn’t enough entry in their wiki and if you want to learn something, you have find it out yourself. So let’s begin!

This tutorial will cover basics about how you can find your way in the magento code and get to the right place and how you can change a product’s page design by changing the place of the images from left to right.
