Live View: Watch Visitors Become Customers with Real-Time Reporting

Black Friday Cyber Monday and this entire holiday season are an exciting opportunity for store owners—and a stressful one, too! With 97% of North American BFCM shoppers planning to shop online this year, it may feel downright impossible trying to stay one step ahead of everything happening in your store this weekend.

That’s why we’ve re-imagined Live View to help you track your store’s performance in real-time—from any device. Every 10 minutes, Live View will present a visual of your customers’ behavior throughout their checkout process.

Your store’s activity, as it happens

Real-time store insights are key to optimizing your marketing campaigns and operations. With our improved Live View, you can uncover key big picture insights to inform decision-making this BFCM:

  • Visitors. See how many visitors are on your site in real-time and where they’re located.
  • Sales. Watch visitors become customers and celebrate sales as they happen. 🎉
  • Checkout. Keep a pulse on your purchase funnel as visitors add items to their carts, start the checkout process, and successfully make purchases.
  • Metrics. Monitor daily total visits, orders, and sales.
  • Traffic. See how many pageviews you have.

The best part? Live View will continue to be available after BFCM as a digestible, visual representation of your store’s performance.
