Ochopika also notes that the artists' sales link is resetting first day sales so they can't be tracked after the first day. Can you confirm if you're seeing the same thing? (I'm sticking around just to bleat and I want to make sure that I have the largest quantity of accurate bleatable information to bleat most accurately and loudly.)
Tjost realized that his sales figures were appearing to go down because the new artists' page moves shirts between sold/packaged/shipped categories, so they all need to be added to get the total sales - although it's not clear that those totals are remotely accurate either. I wonder if that would account for part of what you're seeing?
WOOOOOOOOOT! FIX IT.
The artists deserve to be able to track their sales accurately and exactly. They should not need to be at their computer at midnight on the first day of sales in order to know how many shirts sold on the first day. If they don't know that figure, it would be awfully easy to jigger their commissions by a few dollars here and there, wouldn't it? That can't possibly be your motivation for making the artists' ability to track their sales less transparent, right?
Ok hopefully this will answer all your questions, on my sales page, there is no clear number as to how many sold on the first day, ALTHOUGH, the sales count at the top of the page reset after the first day,so I do know clearly how many shirts have been sold that I will make a commission on. The sales page provides a number for committed , denied, and shipped sales, so by adding the committed and the shipped, I know how many total shirts have been sold, and by subtracting my current total at the top of the page that I mentioned, I can find out how many sold on the first day.
For example, if my commited+shipped numbers add up to 500, and my current order total is 20 of 20000, I know I sold 480 on the first day since 500-20=480.
This is my first print so I don't know how anything has changed. It's not the clearest but I'm quite confident that all the information is there, just have to throw in some basic math thats all ;)
However I don't know why my woot number is so different in this thread, makes my bad sales look WAY worse =(
