How is Number of Orders calculated?

Number of Orders is a count, considering:
a/ post type is in a defined list by WooCommerce (using the function wc_get_order_types( ‘order-count’ ) ); this assures we’re always in-sync with how WooCommerce looks at counting orders.
b/ post status is in a defined list by WooCommerce (using wc_get_order_statuses() ), so pretty much all possible post type status values; same advantages as above.
c/ obviously, it’s broken down by Month, in case it’s a monthly metric or it’s not, in case of Orders All.

How is Amount Spent calculated?

Amount Spent is a count, considering:
a/ post type is in a defined list by WooCommerce (using the function wc_get_order_types( ‘reports’ ) ); this assures we’re always in-sync with how WooCommerce looks at calculating the amount spent by a customer.
b/ post status is in a defined list, Completed or Processing, ( (‘wc-completed’, ‘wc-processing’) ); this is important to understand as it does not represent just th evalue of the order, it represents the value of an order once the payment has been made, provided that the usual flow of statuses is preserved and the store owner sets the order in status completed or processing once he/she acknoledges the money have been transfered to the store.
c/ obviously, it’s broken down by Month, in case it’s a monthly metric or it’s not, in case of Spent All.

Can I export the data?

  1. 1. I just installed the plugin and am trying to figure out if I can get previous data. I don’t see any way to run the report right now to get past data on customer behavior. Can I get past data?

    2. Also, I’m not sure what settings to use. I want to see customer behavior month to month over the course of 1 year. So what should I set each option to? I don’t really understand what each ‘interval’ means.

    3. Finally, is there a way to export the list of customers and total spent to date? I see the numbers of total spent in the Customer List, but no option to export that information.



    1. Dear Sharyn,

      Thank you for raising these questions – see our reply below, and let us know if we answer your questions.

      In general, please go through:

      1. You can get past data, split by months, surely, changing the displayed intervals. You can also set the reporting date as a previous date, so that you would understand customer behaviour in the past.
      2. Total number of intervals displayed should be 12. Please note interval types – current, previous considered and previous displayed – explained in the first article.
      3. There is an Export to CSV button at the top of all our reports.

      Best regards,
      WooReports Team

  2. What is the cost of the plugin. Can we separately track new and returning customers for both wholesale and retail customers?

    Thank you.

    1. Hi, sorry for the late reply. There is no cost currently.

      Well, yes you can – not sure what you mean with wholesale vs retail customers, but you have access to all/most user attributes.
