Yesterday and Today - so far - sales are showing at Zero. Especially for a weekend, that's very unusual.
I suppose it's possible, but it's very unusual.
Anyone else having that issue?

We've seen our sales go normally for periods of time and then they go off kilter all over again and what I mean by that is that they become abnormally slow. We have watched this repeating cycle of sales dipping far below anything that makes sense after normal periods of them for months and would love to know an explanation for it. Some on this help board have very nicely attempted to convince against us thinking these dips are anything but typical but I beg to differ because they are not typical at all. I appreciate the positive view by some of the members here who come behind these type comments and place a positive answer to them but at some point, there has to be recognition that something is wrong with the adding of sales that are coming in. Too many days are way off the mark without obvious corrections following them and some of us know this with certaintly.

I think I got the sales number glitch today. At 9pm Pacific time, my sales switch from 'today' to 'yesterday'. Well, Saturday I had 8 sales (which added in correctly), Sunday I had 12 (which have vanished), today 9. Usually the total for the month updates at 9pm with "yesterday's" rolling off, to be replaced with "today's" as it becomes yesterday. Today it didn't.

Personally I find sales have picked up over the last few months, but they certainly dipped in the first part of April.
My own explanation is very simple: taxes. People have been busy doing them and often paying them. This seems to be confirmed by the fact that things picked up at the end of April.
But honestly, sales are to a large degree a mystery. I really haven't found any sure fire formulas - amount of promotion; ideal price point; time of year; etc. - for what drives them.
