Sales Comparison Detail


In this article, you will learn about Sellercloud’s Sales Comparison Detail report. This report compares products’ sales performance during a specific period to a similar, earlier interval.

Sales Comparison Detail shows sales performance based on specific parameters. You can generate this report based on the following parameters:

  • Company Information: Company, Company Groups, and Channel.
  • Product information: Manufacturer, Brand, Vendor, Product Type, Product Group, and SKU.
  • Comparison: Compare Interval, Comparison Method, Comparison Type, and Intervals Back.

The Qty Sold By Channel Summary report is similar but more focused on giving you an overall picture of your business instead of going into detail.

You can run this report automatically on a regular basis with Scheduled Tasks.
For more information about Sellercloud’s Financial Reporting Suite, see the Reports FAQ.
