Transaction

Track a transaction

POSTtracking/transaction

Transactions are a special type of event, used to track when a user has purchased something from you. The data is reported in Ecommerce Analytics and People CRM.

Transactions can be tracked either in the browser using the JavaScript Tracker when a user completes a purchase, or on the backend when your application processes the transaction.

If a transaction ID is specified, it will be checked for uniqueness to prevent duplicate transactions from being tracked.

By default, GoSquared calculates the total revenue and quantity amount from the items in the transaction. You may want to override this in some cases, such as when a discount was applied. This is possible by specifying revenue and quantity totals in the transaction options.

Note: It is not possible to remove test transactions from your Ecommerce dashboard. Therefore we highly recommend creating a test project in your GoSquared account before you start sending data to your production project.
