When accessing the "Sales> Analysis" section, the system displays by default the estimated sales graph up to the last month in which a sales report was uploaded.
Keep in mind that sales are updated between the 10th and 20th of each month and usually have a 60-day lag (some will appear before and others after depending on the channel). Thus, for example, from April 10 to 20, sales for the month of February go up.
Therefore, to correctly visualize your sales in the graph, you must indicate the start and end dates with no less than 60 days forecast and click "Reload data".
Important note: As we have said above, once these sales are confirmed, the amount shown in the graph is no longer estimated but is confirmed. In the confirmation process, the amounts may vary slightly, so it may happen that when updating the graph with the confirmed amount you may notice some small modifications.
What can you see in the graph?
The system shows the evolution of estimated sales of each store in a different color.
You will see something similar to this:
Below the graph you can make several filters that you can use to analyze your estimated sales under the following criteria:
- Date / period
- Sales channel
How can I filter the data? Real example.
To see the estimated sales of an album during the period from 01/2020 to 07/2020 on Spotify, the filter looks like this:
Clicking on "Reload Data", on the graph you can see the sales during this period according to the criteria selected in the filter.
In this example, the sales of the album during the period from01/2020 to 07/2020 on Spotify, were 7.76€.
To be able to distribute to the different artists the amount that corresponds to them, you only have to filter it by artist and then subtract 5%, which corresponds to the Revenue Share.
