How to Track Sales by Folder (for tracking sales by a Specific Artist, or Subject Matter)


If you need to be able to see orders from specific artists featured on your website (or subject matter), so that you can show them what was sold or pay them a commission, this article will show you how to do this.

NOTE:  This is different from tracking sales of anyone that is referring business to you, such as a restaurant, curator, or a website you are advertising on.  In this case, you would want to provide them with a link to your website with specific tracking code, covered in this article: How to Empower Third Parties to Sell For You & Track Their Sales (Link Tagging & Referral Tracking).

By organizing products into folders, it allows you to export the orders of only the products within that folder.  This will give you clear numbers of the total revenue sold by folder, as well as some other helpful data.


Please Note: If you’d like to export orders of just products from a specific artist, you need to make sure that you create folders in your store that have the artist name and add all their products in that folder. Here is a tutorial for handling Folders within your Store: How to: Manage Folders in your Store
In this article, we are going to cover:
