Have a look at Traffic reports: Traffic sources section.
You may recognize this table: it was previously available in our reports section. But, in its earlier versions, this table was lacking the most important details: the 2 last columns, Transactions and Revenue.
When you have GA Enhanced Ecommerce on your site, these valuable columns appear.
Therefore, you can see various sources of traffic, and the indicators that describe their performance:
- The amount of users
- The number of new users
- The average time spent on the website
- Bounce rate (the amount of people who have left the site after viewing a single page only)
- The number of completed transactions
- The volume of revenue
Device categories is a section which allows you to understand how many people buy products on your site using desktop version, tablet or mobile.
Users - users who have initiated at least one session during the date range.
New users - the number of first-time users during the selected date range.
Average session duration - the average length of a session.
Bounce rate - the percentage of single-page sessions in which there was no interaction with the page. A bounced session has a duration of 0 seconds.
Transactions - is the total number of completed purchases on your site.
Revenue - the total revenue from transactions.
