This can be done for any item in any menu type (Flowers, Edibles, Concentrates, etc).

Once you save your menu item with the Top Sellers box checked, you’ve officially added it to your top sellers list.

But how do you show off the top selling items?

Shortcode options

The Dispensary Top Sellers add-on comes with a custom shortcode for you to easily display your top selling items on your website.


[wpd-topsellers title="Top Selling Items" class="" type="flowers" posts="9" name="show" info="show"]

Below are details on each available option.

  • title – default is Top Sellers. This title shows above the menu item output.
  • class – default is wpdshortcode & wpd-topsellers are both classes used by default in the plugin.
  • type – default is all menu types. Additional options (flowers, edibles, concentrates, prerolls, topicals, growers)
  • posts – default is 100.
  • name – default is ‘show’. Choose to show or hide the menu item name from shortcode output.
  • info – default is ‘show’. Choose to show or hide the menu item info from shortcode output.

When you add your top sellers shortcode to the Page or Post of your choice, the output will look similar to the screenshot below.

Widget options

The options available in the widget are the same that are available in the shortcode.

For instance, you can select to display 3 menu items and only show the image and name, without displaying the item category.

Or maybe you want to show the names only, with no featured image or category output.

You could also check the box to randomize the output, which works well if you have a lot of items in your top sellers list and want to give them all equal time to shine.

The goal of the widget is to give you the option to choose how you display menu items easily without having to touch a line of code.
