Marketing activity reports for integrated marketing apps

If you use apps for your marketing, then the marketing activity reports can give you insight into how well your marketing is doing.

The marketing activity reports give detailed analytics on conversions, such as the conversion rate, average order value, top products sold, and more. The reports give you the information that you need to follow and measure the success of your marketing activities that use services such as Google Shopping Campaigns and Facebook Ads.

The results shown in the reports depend on the marketing app that's sending the data to Shopify. For a list of all the apps that you can use, see the integrated marketing apps on the Shopify App Store. For the data to show up in the marketing activity reports, you need to use one of these apps, which use UTM parameters. For details on setting up your marketing activities, see the documentation for your particular app.

You can also view marketing activity reports from an order's details page.
