The PRODUCT DETAILS report is used to determine how your products are selling versus the number of times the product is viewed. If you're seeing that the item is viewed often and the corresponding sales are also up, then you may not have to change anything, or you might want to consider a sale to further increase the success of a particular item. On the other hand, if your report shows something being viewed infrequently and with a corresponding number of sales, then you might want consider changing the description and media (e.g. pictures, video, etc.) to help with change this trend.
