Velocity data tells you how well your product sells when it’s on the shelf to help you assess and compare the health of your products, even when they are not sold in the same number of stores. For more on how Crisp calculates velocity, see: Velocity Calculation Details.

The Shopify Year Over Year Velocity dashboard has three sections:

  • Overview: Provides the big picture of what's going on with your velocity.
  • Drivers: Helps you understand what events are contributing to your velocity.
  • Details: Provides granular information you can act on to improve your velocity.


The Overview section provides high-level information about your velocity. Use the following map of the screen to guide you.

This graph shows your year over year velocity each week based on the number of units sold per order. You can customize the time frame or granularity shown in the graph by adjusting the date filters at the top of the dashboard.

This graph helps you identify velocity patterns on a per order basis, rather than tracking velocity on individual units sold.

These tiles are dynamic calculations showing your total portfolio's velocity and how much the totals have changed from the prior year.

4.png Year Over Year Velocity by Product

This sortable table shows your year over year velocity by product based on the average number of units sold per order.

Note: If you filter for an individual product, these tiles will display aggregate data for all orders that contained that specific product.
