WHAT IT IS
The Customer Performance Report tells you what portion of your customers make up the largest portion of sales, which is helpful for marketing purposes. Often, 10% of your customers generate 80% of your sales, and it’s important to know who those customers are and what they purchase. You might have previously known this as the Percentiles Report.
WHAT IT DOES
Breaks down your sales data into customer segments so that you can target those customers that spend the most with you for marketing purposes. Data fields in the Performance Report for you to analyze include:

A Sales column, showing the total sales in that percentile increment.
A Cumulative Sales column, showing a running total of sales including sales from the previous percentile category.
