Get Item Sales Data

Returns product sales data at a specific outlet.

This is a detailed endpoint that provides sales data complete with cost and profit information, as well as selected attributes of the recipe linked to the sold POS item.

Some data can be freely modified even after the sales have been processed. It's the case of the linked recipe, which can change at any moment if the user decouples the POS item and links it to a different recipe.

This action can in less common circumstances also change the food cost and profit values of historical data. Use the updated_at filters to track these changes.


Curious about how Apicbase calculates food cost?

This is one of the most powerful features offered by Apicbase. We do our best to calculate the impact of product sales on the inventory's total value with the information available to us at the time of processing.

If it's not possible to calculate it this way (because maybe, for example, the raw items that make up the product that was sold were not found in inventory) we will still populate the food_cost returned on this endpoint based on the historical cost price of the linked recipe. Read more about how we calculate this on our knowledge base.

Each individual "line" returned by this endpoint is an aggregation of ticket lines. They are not individual ticket lines, but they also don't represent an aggregation of any specific period of time, this depends on the frequency on which the automated routine that processes these sales runs. This is to say: don't assume that there will only be one ticket line for a given product on a given day.
