When you first upgrade your Gator account to include an eCommerce store, there are several additional features packed inside that aim to help you track and identify the kind of reception your website is receiving. Ideally, these stats will provide the detail that their namesake suggests, insight into your store's performance.

In this article, we will cover how to access the Insights as well as what information is present in the Basic and Advanced tabs.

Finding the Insights

When you first launch your store, you will be met with the setup screen or store progress screens. You will want to finish setting up your store before proceeding.

  1. To get to the Insights, click on the Store option from the left-hand menu in your website editor.
