How the Best Selling Product Report Works

Let’s look at how this report helped Ashton, a Shopify stationery products retailer. 

Ashton’s business could be described in one word – steady. He had good sales rates, profitability, brand trust, etc. And Ashton was happy with it. 

 

 

But growing competition threatened to unsettle Ashton’s smooth sales. Rapidly growing his store was his only way to beat them. 

For that, he had to expand his market horizons – easier said than done. Since his sales were steady for a long time, Ashton didn’t scrutinize them in-depth.

 

He realized he couldn’t grow without knowing how each of his products were performing – the key to developing an effective sales strategy.

The problem? He needed this information ASAP. He couldn’t sift through years of sales data to get it but hoped a reporting tool could. 

 

Ashton found Report Pundit and used the Best Selling Product report for the required data.  

Analyzing the report gave him surprising store insights. Folders were selling rapidly, only beaten during the holiday season by gift cards. Sharpies, which he thought were his best seller, were second most popular, followed by whiteboards and staplers.

At the lower end of sales activity were graphing notebooks and advanced scientific calculators. Ashton felt let down, having expected these products with significant profit margins to boost his sales.

 

Ashton revamped his marketing and inventory management to sell more of his top products. He also held off adding eBook readers until his low performing products hit their sales targets. 

Thanks to the Best Selling Products report, Ashton’s Shopify store is now defined by new words:  efficiency and growth.

 

Ashton’s experience reveals that this report:

  • Keeps merchants updated on their best selling products 

This is vital information to develop effective sales and marketing strategies. 

 

  • Helps recognize the reasons behind each product’s sales rate 

Merchants can analyze that reason and gain many sales insights.

Example: If sales are spiking for a certain product, you can dig deeper and find out when it’s occurring. You can then capitalize on that trend the next time with the right discount code, marketing, etc. 


  • Displays revenue share of each product 

Merchants can confirm if their best selling product has the largest revenue share. This insight is essential to develop the right pricing strategy. 


  • Connects store performance and product lineup

Merchants can use this report to gauge their product lineup accuracy. If your best selling products are performing below expectations, you can experiment with new products or designs. 


  • Indicates marketing strategy effectiveness

By looking into the marketing of each product, merchants can know their RoAS (Return On Ad Spend) and ACoS (Advertising Cost of Sales) accurately and adjust the strategy for maximum returns. You can even improve sales of your poorly performing products with such adjustments.
