ShippingEasy REPORTS include a number of pre-configured reports to accommodate the reporting needs of most shipping operations. Export them as needed or schedule them to be emailed to you on a recurring basis. Though the columns cannot be edited or rearranged, they make for easy access to your shipping data. Learn more about REPORTS.
The Shipping Reports include a Shipping Margin (Domestic) report that lists the shipping margin for all orders that with one or more shipments within the requested time span.
This report is totaled by Destination State so that you can easily review the total shipping margin for each US State or Territory. The many applications of this report include:
- identifying states that make a positive shipping margin. Then you can pass on specific shipping discounts to your customers. Also use it for tax reporting, if your state requires it.
- identifying states with a negative shipping margin. Use this to revise the shipping costs you extend to customers and/or raise your minimum purchase amount required for free or flat rate shipping.
The columns included in these reports are:
- Order Number
- Order Date
- Ship Date
- Gross Product Revenue: ( Order Total + Discount - (Sales Tax + Shipping Paid (by customer) ) )
- Discount Amount
- Shipping Paid (by customer)
- Sales Tax
- Order Total
- Number of Shipments
- Destination Country

Notes about handling of unique shipping scenarios:
- Duplicate Shipments: these are shipments created from the SHIPMENT HISTORY page. They are only included in the report if the original shipment for the order occurred in the selected date range. Included in the report means that the cost of each duplicate shipment is used when calculating the shipping margin for the order.The revenue from the order is not double counted. Learn more about duplicating shipments.
- Split Orders: these are created from the ORDERS page. They are only included in the report if all of the resulting split orders have all shipments within the selected date range. Included in the report means the cost of each shipment is used when calculating the shipping margin for the order. The revenue from the order is not double counted. Learn more about splitting orders.
- Combined Orders: these are created from the ORDERS page. When combined, ShippingEasy only maintains the Order Total and Shipping Paid (by customer) from one of the original orders. As such, combined orders are not guaranteed to have their shipping margin calculated accurately. Learn more.
