Google Analytics alternatives for eCommerce stores

You may have heard Google Analytics is the best solution for tracking eCommerce data. However, there are many other platforms that work great, and in some cases, better than the popular analytics platform.

This is particularly true if you’re serious about privacy. Google Analytics, though incredibly feature-rich, collects personal and personally identifiable information from site users. This includes online identifiers such as IP addresses, visited pages, browser fingerprints, and more.

Did you know that 86% of consumers abandon their shopping carts due to the cost of shipping? In other words, customers who are prepared to place their order will bounce off the checkout page due to high shipping costs.

Looking for a way to optimize the checkout flow of your online store? With default WooCommerce, you’re limited in the ways you can speed up your store’s checkout flow and optimize it for conversions. Here are a few reasons why:
