Understand your store's performance data

Exchange generates performance data for your listing based on your store's revenue and traffic.

Your store's revenue is calculated on a monthly basis. Exchange's assessment of your store includes all sales data from the past 12 months. Once a listing is created on Exchange, then your store's performance data will update automatically at the end of each month. If your store tracks any sales or traffic during a month that it is listed on Exchange, then the information won't contribute to your listing's revenue figures until the start of the next month.

Exchange takes only whitelisted sales into account when generating the sales graph for your store. Whitelisted sales are orders that Exchange is able to verify. These include sales made through: Online Store, POS, Draft Orders, Facebook, Houzz, Buy Button, Mobile App, Pinterest, Messenger, Amazon, ShopKey, Xero, and Frenzy.

  4. Click Unpublish listing to confirm that you want to remove your store from the Exchange marketplace.

If you want to list your store again after removing it from the Exchange marketplace, then click Publish. Your store description will remain the same as your original listing.
