Need a better understanding of how well products sell when featured in a live sale? Head to your Sell Through Insights tab.
Your Sell Through tab gives you a snapshot of products featured on a live sale in the last 45 days, and the performance of those products (often viewed as sold versus available). This tab starts tracking a product’s sell through the first time you or a team member scan it on a live sale through that 45-day mark. Any products first scanned over 45 days ago will not display even if they were recently featured on a live sale.
You can use your Sell Through tab to gain quick and easy insight into which products your team should reshow in a live sale based on when they were last shown, the number of times they’ve been shown, the volume of inventory left to sell, and the potential profit from that unsold inventory.
We walk through the various graphs and tables featured on your Sell Through tab below.
Sell Through Insights Data Sets
There are four sets of data on your Sell Through tab: Summary Sell Through Current Snapshot, High Priority Sell Through Opportunities, Detailed Sell Through by SKU by Live Week Cohort, and Individual SKU Sell Through Drill Down. We walk through these data sets on the below tabs.
Your Sell Through Snapshot consists of 4 key performance indicators (KPIs) displayed at the top of your page, and two graphs.
|Data Set||Information Displayed||How You Can Use It|
|Total Unique SKUs||This KPI displays the total number of unique product SKUs scanned for the first time during a live sale in the last 45 days.||Track new product intros. Know at-a-glance how many new products you are introducing to your live sale shoppers in a 45-day window.|
|Starting Quantity of Items||This KPI displays the beginning number of inventory units for all unique SKUs scanned for the first time during a live sale in the last 45 days.||Identify starting inventory levels. Knowing the total inventory units available for unique SKUs helps you calculate their sell through.|
|Current Sell Through %||This KPI displays the total product units sold divided by the starting quantity as a percentage.||
Know if product is moving. A high sell through percentage means inventory you first scanned in the last 45 days is selling.
If you feel your percentage is lower than it usually is, you can investigate sell through at the product-level using the tables included on the Sell Through tab.
|Total Available Items Remaining||This KPI displays the total number of unsold inventory units for those unique SKUs scanned for the first time during a live sale in the last 45 days.||Track sales for unique SKUs. Compare this figure to Starting Quantity of Items to get a feel for how effectively products are selling in that 45-day window.|
|Current Total Units Sold/Available by Live Week Cohort||View a breakdown of the number of inventory units sold (dark blue) and the number remaining (light blue) for products first scanned during a specific week. The points on the line graph reveal the total number of unique SKUs scanned for the first time during a specific week.||
Track sell through over a 6-week period. Gain a high-level view of product sell through for the unique SKUs scanned in a 45-day window.
Sell through should trend up, so know at-a-glance whether certain weeks contain products with greater available inventory than sold inventory.
|Current Sell Through % and Available % by Live Week Cohort||View the percentage of inventory units sold (dark blue) and the percentage of remaining, available inventory (light blue).||
Know which weeks contain products you should reshow. If a week displays a large percentage of available inventory over sold, you can drill into the week in the Detailed Sell Through by SKU section to identify which products you should reshow.
Reshow products are those products that haven’t been featured on a live sale more than once and still have a large volume of available inventory.
Your Sell Through by Quantity Remaining is a single table that highlights products with the highest sell through opportunities.
Some of the key columns to view in this table are:
- # of Times Shown Live. Displays the number of times the product has been shown since it was first scanned in a 45-day window.
- # Days Since Last Shown Live. Displays the number of days since the product was last scanned during a live sale.
- Current Quantity. Displays the current available inventory levels for the product.
- Potential Revenue Opportunity. Displays the potential GMV you stand to make from the available, unsold inventory.
For example, in the above screenshot, we immediately see a high Current Quantity count for the product in row #8. This product has only been shown in 2 live sales, and it’s been 11 days since it was last shown. Most importantly, there is $6,659 in potential revenue outstanding for this product. This tells us we should get this product back on a live sale and brainstorm creative ways or looks we can use to drive sales.
These seven tables display sell through details by product based on when the product was first scanned during a live sale—this week, one week ago, two weeks ago, etc.
Similar to Sell Through Opportunities, key columns to review on this table are:
- # of Times Shown Live
- # Days Since Last Shown Live
- Current Available Quantity
- Current Sell Through %
You can scroll to the right to view a breakdown of the sell through percentage by day (within that week).
The Weekly Sell Through Filtered by SKU graph allows you to view sell through data week-by-week for a specific SKU. For this graph, you’ll need to first define your specific SKU at the top of the page using the Sell Through Visualization (Filter by SKU) field.
Once you select the SKU, select the blue refresh icon in the top-right corner of the page to refresh the graph at the bottom of the page.
When viewing the graph, you can track the sell through of the product since it was first shown live (not to exceed 45 days). If you hover over the bars, you can view the sell through percentage (the total available product divided by the amount sold) over that period of time.
Note: CommentSold defines weeks on a rolling basis. Here is a breakdown of how those weeks are structured:
- This Week. SKUs first shown live 0-6 days ago.
- 1 Week Ago. SKUs first down 7-13 days ago.
- 2 Weeks Ago. SKUs first shown 14-20 days ago.
- 3 Weeks Ago. SKUs first shown 21-27 days ago.
- 4 Weeks Ago. SKUs first shown 28-34 days ago.
- 5 Weeks Ago. SKUs first shown 35-41 days ago.
- 6 Weeks Ago. SKUs first shown 42-45 days ago.
