What’s in the Best Selling Report

 

 

The Best Selling report shows you a list of all of your best selling products and each of their associated properties:

 

  • The Product Image shows a thumbnail of the product image (if available).
  • The SKU is the SKU that’s assigned to the product.
  • The Product Name is the name associated with the product.
  • The Sold Count is the number of times that product has been purchased.
  • Revenue is the dollar amount of revenue earned for each product (before any order discounts have been applied).


Applying Filters to the Report

 

Above the report, you will find multiple filters to help you narrow your report into highly specific data points.

 

Note: When you first visit the Best Selling page, the report will default to show all data for the current calendar day. It will not consider a date range or any other filters until you have applied them.

 


 

One or more filters can be applied to your report. Once you’re done selecting filters, you must click Retrieve to reflect changes.

Grouping Data in the Report

 

Grouping data allows you to view your report in a more organized fashion. In the top menu, you will see a few ways to organize your report. The default view is “Grouped by Product,” but you can use the other tabs to further drill down into your best selling product data. 

 

  • Grouped By Product groups your results to show best sellers at the product level.
  • Grouped By Variant groups your results to show best sellers based on product variants, such as size and color.
  • Grouped by Product, First Customer Purchase groups your results to show best selling products that one or multiple people made as their first purchase. This is designed to help you gauge which products are helping to bring in new customers.
