What is Report Toaster?
Report Toaster, created by Cloudlab™, is the most powerful reporting app available for Shopify merchants.
How do I start using Report Toaster?
Please bear in mind that if you aren't the store owner, you will likely need app permissions to install the app.
It says my data is syncing, what does that mean? How long will this take?
When you first install the app (or upgrade to our Premium plan), Report Toaster syncs the relevant Shopify data from your store.
This process can take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours for larger stores. Please be patient.
See here for more information.
Does Report Toaster have a Free Plan?
For our Shopify and Shopify Basic Customers, Report Toaster has a free plan available. This plan is limited to 1 year of historical data (see below).
However, these users can choose to upgrade to our paid plan for only $9.00 a month. This plan comes with a lot more features, including:
- Unlimited Data (see below)
- Premium Reports (see below)
- Calculated Fields
- Shared Links
- Scheduled Reports
See our main guide here
for more information.
Unlimited Data - what does that mean?
By default, our free plan for Report Toaster syncs 1 year of historical data (Orders, Transactions, etc.) from your Shopify admin. This means you will only have the last 365 days of data for your store.
For users on our paid plan, we can sync additional historical data. Simply contact us at email@example.com and we can add the extra data upon request.
What are Premium reports?
These are included by default on all paid plans of Report Toaster. As of the time of writing, we have over 30 Premium Reports now available in the app.
See our main section here for more information.
Free apps scare me, does that mean you sell our data?
Absolutely not! We pride ourselves on privacy and security. Your data is safe with us. If for whatever reason, you decide to uninstall our app, your data is removed from our servers.
Will installing Report Toaster slow down my store?
No it will not! There are apps that can affect the performance of your store, but those apps inject code into the front end of your store.
Report Toaster catches webhooks provided by Shopify and then gathers data using the Shopify API. None of which have any impact on your store's performance.
For more information, see our article here.
Which Reports are historical (true at time of sale) vs. live (true right now)
All of our Sales Reports are historical, meaning that they track the data that was true at the time of sale.
This is done to preserve historical integrity of the necessary order data as well as to make sure that the profits accurately reflect what was true when the goods were actually sold.
In contrast, most of our Product and Inventory reports are live, meaning they reflect the current prices, costs, profits etc.
If you make changes to your Products/Inventory, these updates will be shown on the Product and Inventory reports but not on the Sales reports for any orders that were placed before the changes were made.
How long does it take for my data to update if I make changes to my store?
If something changes with your store data (e.g. a new order is placed), Report Toaster updates automatically. This will be done in near real-time, with a built-in delay of around two minutes to wait for Shopify to complete the update.
On rare occasions, Shopify has been known to have delays in delivering the webhooks that inform our app of changes to your data.
When this happens, we will be out of sync until Shopify catches up. Historically, this is normally just a few minutes, but it has been known to sometimes take a few hours.
Please be patient and feel free to contact us if you would like us to investigate further.
How many built-in reports are included with Report Toaster?
Report Toaster has over 100 pre-built reports and we are always adding more!
Can I create my own custom reports?
Yes. Start with one of our pre-built report and customize with your own filters, column, sort order, chart type, etc. Save to "My Reports" for later access.
What does this field/attribute mean?
Most of our fields and various attributes come from Shopify and work in much the same way.
For a list of common attributes and some key definitions, check out our main guide here.
What if I'm not sure how to create the report I want?
If you are having trouble creating a report, just contact us and we can create it for you. This is a service we provide free of charge.
Why should I use Report Toaster instead of the Shopify reports?
Report Toaster contains a lot of features that Shopify lacks, including new data, more customizable reports, and better support.
