Approaching e-commerce more efficiently

For agencies, efficiency is key. It keeps clients satisfied and gives momentum to the business. And agency efficiency is directly linked to the workflow and work tools in place. We know it for a fact: behind Snipcart is our mother web development agency Spektrum Media, which has been running for 6+ years now. It’s inside our day-to-day operations at Spektrum that we spotted a major flaw when it came to tackling e-commerce efficiently.

What was the problem you ask? Well, there was virtually no lean, flexible solution to handle e-commerce on any CMS or technology without built-in shopping features. The spectrum of solutions was concentrated in limited and closed ecosystems like Shopify and Magento or in rigid, CMS-specific plugins. On the other hand, costs for a custom e-commerce platform were so high that most clients took their budgets and ran. So whether it was with hosted solutions, plugins or custom development, adding a customized shopping cart to an existing website was never an efficient project.

That is why we founded Snipcart: to remove the pain of building amazing e-commerce platforms into any website. To give developers, the crucial talents behind web projects, a powerful, flexible tool they would love and leverage however they wanted, without interrupting their workflow.

*NOTE: Unfortunately, we no longer have Magento Open Source eCommerce as an integration. However, this won’t inhibit you from getting your e-commerce data. Our integration with Google Analytics includes KPIs for all your e-commerce data, as well as many other sources such as Google Adwords, Google Search Console, Facebook, MailChimp, and way more. If you have any questions regarding using Google Analytics to gather your e-commerce data, don’t hesitate to reach out to our great support team!*

 

Magento is a well known e-commerce platform. While it’s easy to track e-commerce metrics using Google Analytics e-commerce tracking, some might want to hook their Magento data directly. That’s why we integrated some Magento e-commerce metrics using their API. It’s now easy to create dashboards and reports using your Magento e-commerce performance data.

We created the following standard KPIs available from the Indicators drop down menu:

  • Number of Products Ordered
  • Average Order Value
  • Total Revenue
  • Number of Orders

What are the metrics and dimensions available?
