Admin Stats SVG Graphs

We have overhauled the Admin Statistics page to display your store statistics using Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG). SVG is totally scalable so will display perfectly on your mobile, tablet or desktop PC. Sales and Orders can be displayed graphically over time, or you can still choose the numerical display allowing you to copy and paste the output to your spreadsheet application. Available filters...

  • Date range
  • Product name
  • Product ID
  • Affiliate
  • Buyer location
  • Payment method
  • Order status type

The graphs are a great way to see how particular products have performed over time as well as providing an easy to read and interpret overview of sales and orders. At a quick glance, and using the available filters, you should be able to identify which products or sections are performing well, and which may need closer inspection.
