The are a few tabs across the top of the page.
You can generate reports on any of these.
Underneath is a line of blue links. You can further refine your reports with these options.
The first blue link under Orders is Sales by Date. This shows you how many sales you have had within a certain time period. You can click the next line of tabs to see sales by Year, Last Month, This Month, Last 7 days and you can also choose a custom time period.
The next blue link is Sales by Product. Here you ca see your best selling products on the left. You can click on a product and then choose a time period and see all the sales of that product.
You can search for any product you have in your store to check on it’s sales. You can also see which products earn the most money.
The next blue link is sales by category. To filter by category start typing into the Select Categories… input box. This brings up a list of categories to choose from. You can choose one, all or just a few categories.
The last blue link lets you search for sales by coupon. You can create discount coupons in WooCommerce. The coupon area is much like the products area. You can search by individual coupon, most popular, and most discount.
