Product analytics overview

You can get an at-a-glance understanding of a few key product inventory metrics, including sell-through rate, days of inventory remaining, and inventory value (ABC analysis), on the Products page with the product inventory analytics bar.

The analytics bar appears at the top of your Products page. It provides inventory-related metrics to help you get a sense of how well your inventory is selling, how quickly your inventory is likely to run out of stock, and the approximate value of a subset of your best-selling inventory on hand. These metrics can help with inventory management, restocking, and even planning for sales or specials.

For more detailed information about each inventory metric, you can access the associated inventory analytics reports by clicking the metric’s tile in the analytics bar. Some reports are not available to Shopify Basic or lower plan levels.

Steps:

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Products > All products.

  2. Click the tile for the metric you’re interested in to view the associated report.

The following table shows the metrics available in the product inventory analytics bar, and which reports they link to for further information:
