What is a Daily Sales Report?

The "Daily Sales" report is a list of all the orders per day that have a "Payment received" payment status. A "Daily Sales" report includes order number, product amount, shipping cost, tax, discount, coupon, profit and total amount fields. This detailed view can help you assess sales performance. You can also view the order details per order.

How to create a "Daily Sales" report

Creating a "Daily Sales" report will display sales information per order. You can click on the "Details" link to view the specific order details for each item in this report.

Step 1. Create the report.
