Magento: Simplest Way to Show Featured Products on Homepage

Putting a feature product section on your site is perfect way to promote a particular product to your customers. This is commonly seen in almost e-commerce sites to lure customers to buy those particular products.

A simple way to set up a list of featured products on your homepage is to create a category on your admin panel and includes all the products that you want to be feature into that category.

Then, you can simply add this block of code to your homepage page (It is usually on the CMS section unless you set a custom (hard coded) home page).

{{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="your_featured_products_category_Id" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}}

Please be guided that you need to change the "your_featured_products_category_Id" on the code above to the category id which you want to appear as featured products.

That’s it. For any questions please don’t hesitate to comment below.
