I am writing a technical document, and in it I want to refer to the number of units sold for each product. I want to make it concise, and 'sold count' comes to mind. Does this term sound right? Are there better alternatives?

I recommend sold quantity (or quantity sold) as a standard term, used in ERP software and accounting departments all over.
An abbreviation of the number of units sold for each products is simply number sold or units sold.
