I need to sort products on catalog page by ordered quantity.

What is the best way to do it?

I know that table sales_order_item contains this data, but I think direct SQL queries is bad practice (like SELECT SUM(qty_ordered) FROM sales_order_items WHERE product_id = {$product id} and then sort it).

So I want to find good solution.



I've found solution myself:

$collection = $this->_productCollection->create()
        array('store_id' => $this->_storeManager->getStore()->getId()),

You need create new attribute for products and save/update number of sales in this attributes. Then you can sort by new attribute using native magento interface.

  • Do you mean create _afterSave to order model and increment this attribute? – Kyrylo Romantsov Sep 15 '17 at 10:21
  • Yes. Or create plugin <type name="Magento\Sales\Api\Data\OrderInterface"> <plugin name="eventSalesOrderStatus" type="....."/> </type> – Alex Sep 15 '17 at 10:59
  • My techlead says it is bad practice – Kyrylo Romantsov Sep 15 '17 at 21:22
