About this data

Items per Order tracks the average number of items purchased within each order. Tracking this metric can provide insight into the performance of a company's up-selling and cross-selling strategies. The Items per Order data is derived from the Salesfire Trends Items per Order Index. This is a normalised dataset which adjusts for fluctuations in sample size and removes any data anomalies to give a real representation of the overall industry change. The current period is measured up to the current day compared with the same time frame in the previous period.
