It’s no secret that peak sales times vary from business to business. Bar sales spike after 5 p.m., for example, and coffee shops before lunch. We added Flexible Close of Day to the Square Dashboard last week so you can customize your bookkeeping to fit your business.
Now, with the new Sales Trends tool, you can see exactly when you sell the most. Obviously, more people eat ice cream in the summer, but on which day of the week? According to Square seller data, it’s Saturday.
These insights will help you plan for the ebbs and flows of your business. You may want to staff up on Saturdays, for example, or stock up on certain items in December. When you log in to your dashboard, you’ll now see a Sales Trends option under the Reports tab that exposes these trends. Happy planning.
