Offering a wide range of product options can increase conversions and encourage customers to stay longer on your ecommerce store, ultimately boosting your customer base.
Do you have the variety in your product lineup to meet customer demand? And varying product categories alone won’t do – you should list multiple variants of each product on sale. (Variants are versions of a product with differences in attributes like color, size, storage capacity, etc.)
And if you do have the right lineup, are you monitoring how that red t-shirt is performing versus the blue one? If you don’t, you’ll drop the ball on many aspects of your business like inventory management, customer experience, profitability and others.
Our All Products report provides details for each variant Stock Keeping Unit (SKU). It tracks changes made to all SKUs in real-time.
This report is packed with detailed data fields for each product variant, offering in-depth insights into your store. Analyze it to fully understand your pricing strategy, costs, inventory status, marketing efforts, and more.
Manage multiple products and variants without hassles using the All Products report.
How the All Products Report Works
This report is best understood with an example. We’ll study how Pam used it to her benefit.
Pam recently opened a Shopify candy store filled with all types of goodies. Having a sweet tooth herself, she wanted to leave no stone unturned in satisfying fellow candy lovers. Gummy bears, chocolates, taffy … She had them all in every flavor.
With a bright and lively storefront matching her personality, Pam managed to build a large, loyal fanbase. They simply couldn’t get enough of her products, which flew off the shelves faster than she could manage.
However, the lack of product sales details worried Pam. She couldn’t acquire and analyze data fast enough to operate her Shopify store smoothly. She wondered what she’d do about high sales activity during the holiday season.
Pam craved product data more than her own sweets. She wanted to set product management right with data-driven planning and execution. So she installed Report Pundit and explored the All Products report.
The report gave Pam a detailed look into her product activity, down to every product variant SKU. She found that:
- lollipop orders were mostly bulk instead of individual units, regardless of flavor
- strawberry and mango jell-o flavors had the highest demand for that product
- single serving packs of her custom chocolate were doing better than larger sizes
- taffy sales were below expectations, no matter the flavor or pack size
- gum had a good initial run but slowed down over time
Pam got more insights into her Shopify business than she bargained for by analyzing the data. For example, she discovered that her brick-and-mortar store B2B customers caused the bulk lollipop sales.
Checking her marketing revealed an underperforming strategy for taffy and custom chocolates. She also noted that the decline in gum sales started after she switched vendors.
And the list of insights just kept coming. Today, Pam is changing her overall store management practices, revamping marketing strategy, reevaluating vendor choices, reviewing prices and so on.
Thanks to the All Products report, Pam can look forward to sweet customer and store management experiences on her Shopify candy store.
From Pam’s experience, we learn the All Products report helps:
- Record each product variant’s details
Merchants can access product variant specifics easily in one place. Keep tabs on each variant SKU to prevent confusion about its status.
Ex: Pam recognizing her custom chocolates sold better as single-size packs than large ones due to relevant variant data in the report.
- Categorize products easily

Ex: Pam adding the strawberry and mango-flavored jell-o units into the “Best Selling” custom category. Data in the Product Type, Product Title, Variant Title and SKU fields helped her.
- Optimize product page information
Merchants can use this report to optimize product listings, ensuring that product descriptions, images, and other details are up-to-date and appealing to customers. Match your product lineup and descriptions for better customer journeys.
