Your Klasha account should be activated and good to go before reading this article. If you do not have a merchant account, you can check out this article for a guide on setting up your merchant account.
Now that you have a Klasha merchant account, you will have access to your dashboard, but you may be confused about what to do and what the dashboard is for, so let’s shed some light on this.
What exactly is the Klasha Dashboard?
The Klasha Dashboard analyses and displays all metrics and data points needed to monitor the health/performance of your business. Your Klasha dashboard will look like this:
The Klasha Dashboard has two key sections: “Sales overview” and “Sales graph".
The sales overview highlights the sales information. The critical details of the sales overview are:
Today’s sales: The total number of orders and payments received that day.
Weekly sales: The number of orders and payments received that week.
Monthly sales: The number of orders and payments received that month.
Last month’s sales: The number of orders and payments received for the previous month.
The sales graph shows all payments from your customers. The buttons on the top right corner of the chart allow you to toggle between views for payments received over the last 7- or 30- day period.
You can also download your sales report by clicking “Download report” for reporting and reconciliation purposes.
As a merchant, your Klasha Dashboard gives you a complete overview of your business’s activities and helps you make business decisions by viewing your store’s performance at a glance.
Wallet balance: This allows you to see how much you have in your wallet.
Total payout: This shows how much you have initiated as payout.
Payout table: Under this, you can see your payout history and filter using “Transaction status” and “Date”. You can also download your payout report by clicking “Export” for reporting and reconciliation purposes.
Request payout: With the payout button, you can request payouts into your bank account.
This shows your most recent transactions. You can see the transaction ID, method, source, customer email, status, amount, and transaction date. The status column indicates whether the transaction is successful, pending, or failed.
The analytics tab gives you an overview of the reports and metrics you care about most. It allows you to monitor your total and successful transactions and also analyses which payment methods your customers use the most.
Need to know a specific currency’s exchange rate? The exchange rate tab allows you to see the rate and make calculations before sending a cross-border payment.
