Sales Comparison Summary


In this article, you will learn about Sellercloud’s Sales Comparison Summary report. This report compares the current period’s sales to those of an earlier period. 

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

  • Company: Company, Company Groups, and Channel.
  • Comparison: Compare By, Compare Interval, Comparison Method, Comparison Type, and Intervals Back.

The Sales Comparison Detail report is similar but more focused on going into detail for specific products and vendors. It provides more granular information, allowing you to generate the report based on additional criteria such as manufacturer, brand, vendor, product type, product group, and SKU.

You can run this report automatically on a regular basis with Scheduled Tasks.
