With MonsterInsights, you can set up Google Analytics eCommerce tracking with just a couple clicks and no complicated setup.
Then, MonsterInsights eCommerce reports can be easily downloaded as a PDF and attached to an email. Your team can see at-a-glance how your store has performed in whichever date range you choose for the report, in comparison with the previous time period.
Here’s the data you’ll find in the MonsterInsights eCommerce Report:
