Checkout Analytics is an excellent feature that allows you to integrate more tools into your web presence and store. Under the Tracking section, Store owners can enter scripts for each customer checkout page and track conversion rates in third-party software like Google Analytics, Facebook, and Instagram. This is essential for you to understand your customers and also to identify potential markets for business growth.

Take Note: A script is an HTML element that is used to execute a process or program. These scripts are inputted on the analytics tool so you can review your business data in a human-readable format.
