Hi Rhett, Sue is correct, currently there is no way to distinguish sales where the checkout is directly through DPW (DPW auction and PayPal link sales) from other click through sales, such as to Ebay, Etsy, Shoppify, FASO, etc.
Carol and I have discussed this issue thoroughly. Here is our thinking on it:
If we only showed the sales that we know for sure went through DPW (DPW auction and PayPal link sales) then it would leave out all the click through sales. Of course, showing all work marked as sold on the page, as we currently do, does include all sales for work listed in DPW but that did not involve DPW.
Further, another very important intended purpose of the “What’s Selling” page isn’t to communicate just sales volume, but also to show what is selling for our members, regardless of how and where.
I am going to go ahead and add something that will give the needed clarity to the sales figures chart. I had intended to do this from the beginning, however I didn’t have the time, at that time. I am going to add more lines to the monthly sales volume line chart - one to show DPW auction sales and another to show PayPal sales. A third line will show all other sales and, finally, one more to show all sales.
Thank you all for the discussion and feedback!
