To help you track how visitors interact with your website and understand what section type converts better, AliDropship dev team developed an innovative analytics solution - the Smart Theme Analytics add-on. It offers valuable stats on user behavior you can use to maximize your online store performance.
With the Smart Theme Analytics add-on, you can learn which section type performs better on your website by running tests. A test shows different variants of the same section to different website visitors at the same time.
Data on events / interactions (e.g., how many users clicked your Front page slider button) collected by the add-on are valuable and actionable insights you can use to improve your store. To get this information, the add-on takes advantage of Google Analytics 4, the modernized version of Google Analytics that offers an extensive range of flexible reporting features.
