What should eCommerce merchants do before UA stops working?
Millions of eCommerce store owners depending on Google Analytics to analyse traffic trends, measure user acquisition, obtain insights on site usage, and evaluate overall store performance. Data on page views, conversion history, and drop-off points are but some of the essential pieces of information that Google Analytics provide that allow businesses to improve their eCommerce strategies and provide better user experience to customers.
