Pod Direct Retailers - Dashboard + Additional Resources
The Analytics page provides broad insight to total orders in dollar amount and case quantities. This can be filtered by day, week, month, quarter, or year. You can toggle between your unique orders or your store as a whole by selecting For Buyer or For Store in the upper right corner. Additionally, you can see top products by value and quantity at the bottom on the screen.
In the Orders Tool you can review the POs you placed, those your store has placed, and those other buyers associated with your account might have placed
You have the option to export your order history, filter by Brand or by Checkout Date, and see orders that are Pending, In Progress, or Fulfilled
The Samples tool works similarly to the Orders tool. When you request a sample from a vendor, they will receive a notice to process the shipment as they would an order. You can track your requests, your store's, and other buyers' requests in the Sample tool. You can also view your sample history, those pending, fulfilled, and cancelled.
