How do we determine the Top Ten?
We add up all the sales of each item over the past 7 days. And list them by the most sold to the least sold. Each day we again go back 7 days and re-calculate the order of the Top10 products. We do some filtering also to keep it tidy.
Filtering the Top Results
As we also sell to the DIY (do it yourself) artists we sell many small parts and in larger quantities. Some items are purchased in very different quantities. If someone buys 100 nuts and someone buys 30m of wick and someone buys 3 x Poi sets we would not want to display that the top selling items are nuts, screws, washers, bolts, and other small items, which are normally purchased in bulk. So we add some filtering to the above example so it would give the Poi set as the top selling item.
Expanding the Top10
We now have well over 800 items and just showing the Top 10 is really only showing a small fraction of the popular items. So we have decided to also show the Top item numbers from 11 to 50.
Sorting of Categories
If there are enough items in a Category and the items are not listed by size then we list by most popular which we label as '#1 buyers choice' , '#2 buyers choice', '#3 buyers choice'...
Help, too many to choose from!
Some Popular categories have a link to our sales assistant
. This is a tool, to help you pick the best item for you, or the best item as a gift for someone else.
