An in-depth understanding of your eCommerce data will help you to propel the sales of your woocommerce store.
Sales Analysis or Sales Summary Dashboard is part of the WooCommerce Reporting Pro package
Summary: This is one of the most useful and necessary reports for all WooCommerce Store owners. So let us reveal the most Advanced Sales Reporting for WooCommerce.
As a store owner you need to have a good grip on your sales data.
Default WooCommerce Reports does not report Accurate Sales figures
The default Sales reports that come with your WooCommerce installation, does not report point-in-time accurate sales figures. For e.g. The default reports includes the sales figures for Orders that are On-Hold and In Processing status.
As a store owner and with no accounting background, I just want the ability to see the truth.
Even the WooCommerce Admin Dashboard plugin, puts the responsibility on the store owner to set up the correct order status for inclusion into Sales reporting.
How much sales you lost by Failed and Cancelled Orders
With the Sales Dashboard by InfoCaptor, we designed it with a lot of flexibility.
For e.g. You can see sales metrics for each of the Order Status. After all, you should know, How much sales you lost by Failed and Cancelled Orders
What is the purpose of doing Sales Analysis for your Woo Store
Sales Analysis allows you to see the most valuable information about your store. It brings all the revenue figures and plots them for each period. Having the periodic view of your sales data, you can clearly see how your store sales are performing month after month.
A dip in Sales trend chart is a Red Flag
A growing store will display a rising tower of bars in the bar chart. If you see a dip in the trend, that is a red flag.
The red flag could be a seasonal thing, cyclical or a real problem with your store. It encourages you to keep up the pace of your growth.
