Business Reports Detail Page Sales & Traffic tables + Uploader Templates & GDS Reporting Templates
Isn't it odd that Amazon fails to include Sessions and Buy Box data in the MWS API? We sure think so. We know how important those data points can be to reporting and understanding Seller Central account performance so we decided to bite the bullet and create our own solution...we have created two new tables you/we can upload the 'Detail Page Sales and Traffic' data to for comprehensive Seller Central reporting directly from your db (instead of having to house the data in a google sheet).
This v1.0 custom data Business Reports release for dash/DATA STUDIO includes two new tables and two new uploader templates that can be used to populate your db with Seller Central's 'Detail Page Sales and Traffic' (BY DATE) and 'Detail Page Sales and Traffic By Child Item' (BY ASIN) data. If you're unfamiliar, the two reports can be found in Seller Central under Reports > Business Reports.

GDS Templates for Business Reports data: With the availability of this important data, dash has built two reporting templates in Google Data Studio to help you get off to a fast start incorporating the Business Reports information into your reporting. Check out the two new templates here:
The two new database tables - These two tables are not connected to any API, but rather can be populated via the uploader templates described below the table definitions (i.e. you can upload the data regularly or have dash do this as a service):
The two new uploader templates - We have created two new uploader templates to populate the two new tables with data on a regular basis. To find the new uploader templates, simply navigate to the Settings > Import Data screen in your dash platform instance and select the template you would like to download. Of note, the templates currently match the exact fields shown in each of the respective Seller Central reports.
*Pro Tip: Make sure you 'Show' (select) all columns available for each of the Detail Page Sales and Traffic reports to easily line up the export with our uploader template fields.
As mentioned, if you'd like dash to do this regular data upload on your behalf, just ping us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk about your upload needs.
Navigate to the Settings > Import Data screen in the dash/PLATFORM, then select the template you'd like to use to upload the corresponding data
Pricing for Business Reports data - since this is static data and relatively small compared to the programmatic data, we are offering this new solution for FREE. Seriously, no strings attached so upload the Detail Page Sales and Traffic data to your heart's content.
