The "units sold" section of the analytics dashboard only shows the top 5 products, frustratingly.
Most of the sections on the analytics dashboard have a "view report2 link where you can see the full report. However, "units sold" does not have this link.
There must be a way of finding out exactly how many units of each product have been sold during a certain time period? Surely? I can't find it....
How can I get this info please?
I'm Ann, from the team here at Shopify 🙂
At this time, this isn't a report that is available through Shopify. That said, I can definitely see how something like this would be handy- can you tell me a bit more detail about how this would benefit you and your business? Any more information can be really helpful.
Along with that, can you include the URL for your store? That way I can pass your feedback along to our team of developers and they can also track how many stores would benefit from a feature like this.
Have a great one,
Thanks for your response.
I am strugling to believe that Shopify has absolutely no way of telling me how many units of an item I sold in a particular time frame?! Perahps I didn;t explain my question correctly - because the inability to do this seems entirely inexplicable.
Surely it can do this?
I can definitely take a second look into this for you! Can you explain a bit further what you needed just to make sure we're on the same page? Then I can go from there.
Have a great one,
I've also been perplexed on how to get this data. Is there any way to know how many units of an item I sold in a particular time frame?
I am also surprised to find out there is currently no way to see which of our items have sold the most and which haven't sold at all. We have several designs for sale via Custom Cat, but would like to know beyond the top five best sellers how many units of each item have sold. This would help determine my own personal finances, as that some of the merchandise on our site features different members of our team, and each of us are meant to receive different bonuses based on which of our items sell.
I am also shocked that this is not report in Shopify. This is such a basic report that any small business needs for so many things. Has there been any resolution as to why this is not a report in Shopify? Or is it now a report? Please help!
I'm Piam the co-founder at By the numbers. It sounds like we have something that might help. Take a look and let me know if this is the view you need:

Any progress on this report? It is an essential metric for us. Units sold is volume of sales - how much stock is actually moving rather than how much cash is being generated. The two are linked and need to be reported separately!
I am John from Report Pundit, a reporting and analytics app for Shopify.
Yes your requirement is doable with Report Pundit. We have a pre-created report called "Total Product Sold". The report will show the total units sold, net sales, product cost, etc.
Additionally, our support team can create any type of custom reports for free.

No need to purchase any of their sales pitch! 🤑
If you use oberlo go on your dashboard -> orders then select the date you need and -> export
once download in csv file, filter the spreadsheet with the product you need to count.
In libreoffice copy the name of the desired product, then go to -> data -> more filters -> standard filters
in "field name" select product, "condition" select = and in "value" paste the exact name of your product
You now have your spreadsheet fill only with your selected product
Now select the rows all the rows containing your product name, once selected you'll see written "SUM" or something in the bottom right of your window, click right and select "countA" and it will give you the exact number of rows selected,
Here you go, you have now the number you were looking for! 😀
I was able to figure out units sold by whatever time frame I wanted by going to:
Analytics/Reports/Inventory/Percentage of Inventory Sold.
You will get all the information you need there. I can't believe Shopify hasn't posted this already.
I was able to find that report but my numbers on it are not true. It is showing negative numbers also. Do you have any insight why or how to fix that. This is crazy this is not a products/ units sold standard report!
