The Order report lists products that were ordered after an Associates referral and provides information about how the customer was referred (or linked) to the product. The report has three sections; a section detailing the Items that were ordered during the time period specified, the items that generated clicks during the time period but were not ultimately ordered during that period and finally a summary section.
A note on timeframes for the report
The report will only show the clicks and orders for the timeframe specified. Associates get credit for items placed in the cart within the 24-hour session window and then purchased from the cart within 90 days. Over shorter periods of time, it is possible to see orders without clicks or clicks without the expected number of orders. For example, it is possible to see orders that were placed in a shopping cart a long time ago and thus have no clicks associated within the timeframe. It is also possible to see clicks that may have resulted in additions to the shopping cart but where the customer has not yet decided to check out.
A note on the “Items with no orders section”
This section shows items that generated direct links but for which no order was generated in the timeframe specified.
