What is Ecommerce Reporting?

Ecommerce reporting involves the systematic collection, analysis, and presentation of data concerning an online store's performance. Yet, it transcends mere numerical figures; it serves as a strategic instrument to elevate the performance of your Shopify store. By harnessing data-driven insights, ecommerce reporting allows you to delve into user interactions, pinpoint innovation opportunities, and, notably, amplify your product sales and upsells.

What is Ecommerce Data Used for and Why It's so Important?

When it comes to Shopify ecommerce data, there's a lot it can do! One of the main things is diving into real-time traffic. This helps uncover the star players – the top pages and products – in your store.

With quantitative insights into your products’ performance, you can easily identify which items are the best-sellers, the underperformers, and those performing at an average level in terms of transaction numbers and revenue. This knowledge strategically positions you to showcase your best-sellers, cross-sells, and upsells, increasing the likelihood of these products being added to your customers' carts.

Equally important is recognizing low-performing products, as it provides an opportunity to brainstorm improvements in your current selling and marketing strategy to enhance their performance.

Beyond product strategy, ecommerce data serves various purposes, including:

  • Tracking Sales and Promotion Success: Monitor the real-time effectiveness of promotion codes and update campaigns in Shopify as needed.
  • Running A/B Tests: Conduct tests on conversions and usability for immediate results.
  • Competitor Price Monitoring: Keep an eye on competitors’ pricing and adjust your pricing strategy accordingly to stay competitive.
  • Introducing New Features or Products: Enhance your store by incorporating new features or products based on insights derived from the data.
  • Monitoring Customer Activity: Understand customer behavior by tracking the duration they spend on specific store pages and the products they view.

These comprehensive uses of ecommerce data contribute to a well-informed strategy, empowering you to make data-driven decisions that positively impact your store's performance and customer experience.

Upsells Conversions and Clicks

The Cross Sells Conversion and Clicks reports assist you in understanding the revenue you’re earning from your store, the best-selling items, and your Average Order Value (AOV) across different store products and upsells.

Clicks are closely tied to your site's traffic and the number of visitors. If the click count fluctuates, it can be directly correlated to your website traffic. For instance, if you sell Christmas decor but it’s the middle of the year, you may experience a decrease in website visits, reflecting in the Cross Sells reports as fewer clicks on your upsells. Conversely, increased website traffic is likely to result in more clicks on your cross sells and upsells.

Traffic and clicks play a crucial role in conversions. The industry average website conversion rate stands at 3.68%. This means that initially, a customer looking at an item on your website has approximately a 4% chance of converting that visit into a sale. If your conversion numbers are below this average, consider displaying different cross-sells and upsells throughout different stages of the customer's buying journey. Also, analyze factors such as branding, product mix, marketing strategies, or any other elements that might be affecting these numbers. This proactive approach allows you to make adjustments before sales further decline.

Understanding your clicks and conversions enables you to grasp why certain trends are occurring, putting you in a much better position to react and improve before sales continue to decline.
