Paying attention to your sales reports is essential to managing your WooCommerce store and gaining insights into marketing effectiveness. WooCommerce provides a built-in sales reporting dashboard for free and paid members, allowing you to view reports on orders, customers, stock, and taxes. However, there is no option to view your sales reports via payment method.

The ability to view your sales report via payment method will help streamline sales and order reconciliation and give you deeper insight into which payment channels are favored. You can achieve this by adding extensive code or installing a plugin.

There are various free and paid plugins that can be installed such as UserInsights and Woocommerce Advanced Reporting and Statistics.
