What is Sales Transaction?

The Sales Transaction report provides sales data on the most granular level and includes your shop’s entire sales history. This enables the flexibility to construct both detailed low-level analysis of specific order details, as well as getting a high-level overview of your products or customers.

All standard sales metrics that are available in Shopify’s UI reporting tool are also available in this report. These include:

  • Gross sales

  • Discounts

  • Returns

  • Net sales

  • Shipping

  • Taxes

  • Total sales

  • Duties

  • Tips

For a complete list of all available dimensions and metrics, see What data can I get from Shopify?

How long does it take to download my data?

When you connect a Shopify Sales Transaction data source, transactions from the two most recent days will be downloaded first. This is to ensure that you have some data to work with while Funnel works on getting your entire history downloaded.

After loading your two most recent days, your Shopify data will be downloaded in chronological order, starting from the date when the shop’s first order was created. How long this takes completely depends on the number of orders your Shopify store has, scaling from around one hour to several days.
