How to Add Featured Products to Homepage in Magento 2

Magento featured products

Showing featured products on your Magento homepage is a great way to cross-sell and up-sell your products. These highlighted items on the front page help ease customer’s choices. A huge number of products can be overwhelming and cause a visitor to leave your site without buying anything. But with a list of products worth their consideration (new, on sale, best-selling,..), you can effortlessly encourage more sales while saving your customers’ time and efforts in finding desired items.
