About sell-through reports

The Square for Retail Inventory Sell-through Report provides you with an organised daily snapshot of all of the information you need to effectively manage your inventory including making purchasing decisions, price adjustments, and identifying any dead stock.

Before you begin

Although sell-through rates vary by industry and item type, a general rule of thumb is that any item at or above 80% is excellent and any item below 40% is concerning. A sell-through rate over 100% means the item or variation has been oversold and inventory has gone negative.

Inventory tracking must be turned on in your online Square Dashboard under Items > Settings > Inventory and the item or variation must have either been sold or had an inventory adjustment in the last 365 days for a sell-through report to be generated.

Sell-through is a percentage that compares the amount of inventory you receive from a vendor against what’s actually sold over a given period of time.
