Discount code effectiveness report

Subscribe to RSS
  • Client is looking for a report that they can use to tell whether or not a particular promo is effective. They want to know how much the customer spent in total to get the particular discount. Having a hard time with this. There could be more that one discount code on a particular order. I've attached a picture of what the report would look like (per Chuck's recommendations of having a snapshot of the finished product).

    Can anyone help me figure out how to make this happen? I would really appreciate it. 

    The client thinks this should be simple to come up with....if ONLY things were that simple! LOL 

  • If i understand from the report... you are are taking a complete list of items that are marked as discount items, and subtracting from the invoice total... are they item type of discount?  how are they differentiating these inside of the QuickBooks list?

  • I've attached a sample invoice so you can see where the info comes from. Notice that there is a "Payment" item that sometimes gets entered when people pay by credit card or Paypal, which zero's out the invoice. All of the promo codes are entered in QB as a DISCOUNT type of item. Some of the items sold are Inventory Parts, but most are Inventory Assemblies.

    Another caveat...they want to be able to filter by a particular discount item so they can see total sales for customers who used that promo code, along with any other discounts they may have taken.

    Does this help 'Clearify' my clients needs lol ?

  • Good morning! Is there an explanation or definition somewhere for the Applied To vs Applied On Document fields?

    The explanation for each field is also in the Excel Add-In Bubble Text. 

    Here is a synopsis of the LIne Related Fields 

    • Applied To means it is applied against the transaction e.g. linked transaction.
      • Payment
      • Discount on the Payment if paid early according to the terms you have given the customer
    • Applied On means it is applied on the transaction e.g. invoice
      • Minus amount on the invoice
      • Payment item on the invoice

    NOTE: Credit Memos applied against a customer invoice is a separate field in the Sales Analytic.
