Last week was a big week. We launched a couple new features, including one of the most anticipated and highly requested features in a long time. Let’s jump right in.
New Features In Cart66
You can now track inventory at the product level or down to the variation level on any of your products. Watch this quick video demonstration.
Google Analytics For Ecommerce
We have improved the Google Analytics integration with Cart66. Where you used to have to use a Thank You page snippet, now you don’t have to do anything. Cart66 will detect if you have Google Analytics installed on your WordPress site. If you do, we now send along itemized ecommerce details to Google Analytics. You don’t have to make any changes to your site or your settings. If you are using Google Analytics, and it is installed in the head section of your WordPress site then this enhancement is already working for you.
