enable sales reports broken down by variation for each product.
Sales reports by product are fine for simple products, but for people with lots of variations that effect price, or manage their own stock counts, having reports that show how many of each variation were sold is very important.
We’ve started the development of a new report for product variations ????
The new reports are being developed in a feature plugin, that’s currently in Alpha. You can view all the details here – https://github.com/woocommerce/wc-admin
We’d love anyone who’s expressed interest to follow the project along.
how can a shopping cart not do sales reports with product variations... a report that says you sold 10-TeeShirt A is basic BUT it also needs to report 2 - TeeShirtA - BLK - LG ; 5 - TeeShirtA - WHT - XL ; 3 TeeShirtA - BLK - MD. is there a reason this is a problem??
Any update on this?

Here is a sample SQL for fetching the product and variation id
`woi`.`order_item_name` AS `order_item_name`,
`woi`.`order_item_type` AS `order_item_type`,
`woi`.`order_id` AS `order_id`,
`woim`.`order_item_id` AS `order_item_id`,
WHEN (`woim`.`meta_key` = '_product_id') THEN `woim`.`meta_value`
END)) AS `product_id`,
WHEN (`woim`.`meta_key` = '_variation_id') THEN `woim`.`meta_value`
END)) AS `variation_id`,
WHEN (`woim`.`meta_key` = '_qty') THEN `woim`.`meta_value`
END)) AS `qty`,
JOIN `wp_woocommerce_order_items` `woi`)
(`woim`.`order_item_id` = `woi`.`order_item_id`)
This is not the complete SQL but just to provide idea.

I have a client who needs this ASAP. They would like a report on Product Variations and Sales Dates and include the details of the variations, e.g. they have size and colour for their product lines

We also need to filter by tag

Any progress to report?
My clients are screaming at me for this.
Quite strange that this is not part of woocommerce already, there seem to be enough people that need it, myself included.

I'm shocked that this doesn't exist... Makes me have to rethink what I recommend to my ecommerce clients... Guess I'm back to Magento and drupal commerce. Ugh
is there a valid plugin that can generate detailed sales reports with product variations?
Running a report by product variation is inventory management 101...how can this still be missing from woo commerce reports?
This feature is STILL missing
Same here. I have a couple of products with 10 variations each. Right now I have to manually go over all orders to figure out how much each variation sold. I was already disappointed with the general uselessness and lack of flexibility in WooCommerce reports, and the completely absence of it for this otherwise useful plugin.
Bit late but just wanted to share that you can do this with my app Metorik - https://metorik.com/blog/better-reports-for-woocommerce-product-variations :)
Must have default report!
I purchased three! plug-ins already and none of them provide reports sorted by variation/payment gateway at the same time which I absolutely need for tax purposes. Would really appreciate advice...

It's absolutely absurd that there is no core support for reports by product variation. Variations are supported out-of-the-box, and the only way you allow any useful reporting is through paid plugins? Ridiculous.
This should have been an included feature since product variations were included in the product.
I would love to see this. We offer books in physical and digital form. It would be great to see in a report which is preforming better.
Our developer created a bunch of custom CSV exports for us, which a) don't blow up the Woo data cache, and b) provide multiple lines per order, one item per order. That allows easy Excel manipulation.
glew.io is a paid solution. I use it for my other site and it reports products sold by variation.
please I need this as well
