This article will guide you through the steps to get your store profit analysis report on the PrintBase admin page.

The PrintBase store profit analysis report gives you an overview of your business profits as well as staff performance in all divisions of your company to plan your business adjustments accordingly.

Store profit is calculated based on sales, advertising cost, manufacture fee, and printing fee. In order for PrintBase to calculate advertising cost from Facebook ads channel (the main sales channel in the POD industry), you first need to connect the Facebook account you use to run your advertising accounts to your store.

Staff performance is evaluated by the revenue that staffs bring into the company. To measure sales, you must first determine how many products a staff sells by assigning the campaign label you create on PrintBase to that staff. To calculate the cost of advertising used by a staff, you must assign the Staff Label to campaigns run by the staff on Facebook.
