We also have a dedicated team for support and we’ll try our best to answer any questions or solve any problem you encounter.

You will also find lots of tips and guides on our dedicated wiki site: merchants.shelfplanner.com

Can I get more frequent updates on my sales forecast than a weekly sales forecast?

Yes, you can. The Sales Forecast is calculated with live data, but we update the sales forecast for your store only once per week, every Monday morning.
However, if you want to update the forecast on demand, you can do this in the ‘Integrations’ and ‘Update Forecast Data’.

Why do I need to map my categories?

Mapping your categories allows us to compare performance of your products to standardized categories and recognise certain patterns and trends.
Our plugin will work without mapping categories, but the forecast will be more accurate if they are.

Reviews

Great plugin, the forecast is really accurate and I really like the fact it shows me what's happening in my store in the next months. Would it be possible to show my total sales forecast for the next month and not just by category?
