Where can I find my tracking data?
In Google Analytics, Ecommerce and transactional data can all be found together, packed away under one subheading. On the left-side navigation bar, go to Conversions, and then locate “Ecommerce” underneath it.
Under this subhead, you will find product information, overall sales data, transnational information, shopping behavior, checkout behavior and how long it takes users to purchase on average.
Here is what you can learn from the different categories:
- The Overview tab shows you a quick but comprehensive look of everything happening with the ecommerce side of your business.
- The Shopping Behavior tab will show you how new vs. returning visitors behave during program registration.
- The Checkout Behavior (Sales Funnel) Analysis information will show you where users are dropping off during the checkout process. This can help you to determine why abandoned carts and non-completed transactions are occurring.
- The Product Performance shows the number of unique purchases of each program and much more.
How can I use Segments to filter my reports?
You may want to see the tracking reports for either an individual program or an entire season. For example, you may want to see how a new season is performing compared to previous one. You can use Segments in Google Analytics to accomplish this. If you are new to Segments, please click here to learn more.
The below image shows how you can use the Enhanced Ecommerce section along with new segments to create custom reports. Product represents your program names and Program Category would be your season name. You will be able to create new segments to filter your tracking data.
