A common cost for any online store selling goods is the cost of shipping.  Identifying your carrier data allows you to track who is shipping your product.  The following article explains the carrier distribution statistics report within PrestaShop 1.5.


Viewing the Carrier Distribution Report in PrestaShop 1.5

  1. Log in to the PrestaShop Admin Dashboard as an Administrator
  2. Hover over the end of the menu bar to the right where it is labeled "STATS". Click on STATS when it appears in the drop-down menu.
  3. When you see the main STATS screen appear, go to the left-hand column labeled NAVIGATION, then click on BEST SUPPLIERS.  You will see a report similar to the one below:

    The report above shows 3 different carriers being used.  You can use the FILTER option to the right in order to isolate carrier data as necessary.  Simply click on the drop-down menu to select the different order condition options.

    You can also use the CSV EXPORT option at the bottom left (as per above) in order to export the data in Comma-Separated-Value file that you can use in another application.

    Time-based Filtering

    At the top of the report is the option to filter the results of the report by time.  Specifically,  the buttons work like this:

    DAY Selects present calendar day
    MONTH Selects present month
    YEAR Selects present year
    DAY-1 Brings the report back one day
    MONTH-1 Brings the report back one month
    YEAR-1 Brings the report back one year


    Each time you click on these buttons, the data in the date range section will change to match what you have selected.

    For specific dates or date ranges, simply click in the FROM field and then type in the date format of YEAR (YYYY)-MONTH(MM)-DAY(DD) and then click in the TO field to enter the end date.

  4. Select the SAVE option in order to save your date filtering options.

Summary and Explanation of Data

Carrier distribution data is important for your store in that it allows you determine costs for shipping to your customers.  Depending on the carrier, you can see how to best control costs as you see how your sales are being delivered.  You also need to consider the carrier choices of your customers based on your products.  Sometimes only certain carriers can carry your products within a certain area.  Depending on your volume, you may be able to use this data to modify your shipping costs.  Keep a close eye on your carrier distribution in order to see your customer behavior for carrier choices.   This can ultimately help you control your shipping costs.
