How to read and interpret the data of the Discount Analysis Dashboard

Updated over a week ago

The Discount Analysis dashboard answers the question: How to measure my discounts and promo code?

Where to find it?

This dashboard is located in the Business section.

Who is the dashboard for?

This dashboard is useful to marketing teams and CEOs to measure their "generosity" efforts and estimate the correlation between discounts and sales (coming soon).

How to read it?

The best order source to select is the Online store. Data will still display with other order sources but might not be as accurate as for the Online store.

How do we calculate the discounted turnover?

⚠ What is considered a discount in QuanticFy is a promo code. Discounts do not include sales or reduced prices. All the data displayed on the Discount Analysis Dashboard refer to promo codes used by your customers.

Visit our page about Prices to learn more about how we collect price data from Shopify.

As indicated in the table below, we gather orders tickets from Shopify that contain the following information:

  • date of purchase

  • Quantity of each SKU

  • Promo code applied to the order (in percentage or in value)

  • The price attached to the SKU on the purchase date

We then multiply the quantity of each SKU by the price, which gives the total turnover without discount. We calculate the price with the discount and that gives us the turnover after the discount, from which we deduce the discounted amount.

Data description

The yellow line is the discount percentage over time.

The blue line is the turnover after the discount over time (in $).

The green line is the total discount (in $). It gives you the evolution of your "generosity" over time, i.e. the amount that could have been added to your turnover without the discount.

We will add to the discount evolution graph a correlation line (coming soon) to help you visualize the impact of discounts on sales.

The most discounted products dashboard shows the products that were the most ordered through a discounted basket.

The most used promo codes dashboard displays absolute values (the number of times the promo code was used in baskets).

The most used UTMs in discounts is the ranking of the most effective ads that led to discounted orders.

Tips for your business

Look at the Life Time Value by Channel Dashboard to see if the CPA is higher than the average first basket.

Look at your most used UTMs in discounts and look at their channels (are they from Google Ads, Facebook Ads, Influence?). Are the most used UTMs in discount associated with the channel that displays the lowest average first baskets? If so, it might be that you could be more profitable with fewer discounts, especially if the CPA for the channel is high.
