Conversion tracking

Shopify's conversion tracker gives an overview of a customer's previous visits and conversion behaviour leading up to a purchase from your store.

The conversion summary appears on the order details page and includes an overview of:

  • the customer's total number of orders from your store
  • the customer's total visits to your store in the last 30 days
  • the origin of the customer's first visit to your store.

You can also click View conversion details for additional conversion details for that customer:

  • the total number of visits the customer has made to your store
  • the number of days between the first visit and the most recent visit
  • an overview of customer activity, including visits between the first and most recent visit.

UTM parameters

UTM parameters are tags that you can add to the end of a URL that you can send to your customers (for example, https://www.yourstorename.com/?utm_source=emailcampaign). When a customer clicks the link, the tags are sent back to Google Analytics for tracking and reporting purposes.

Some marketing apps come with pre-set parameters. If you're using Google Adwords, then you can automatically add UTM parameters to your URLs or you can set custom parameters using a URL builder.
