Bigcommerce Expands Enterprise Analytics; Launches Automated Product Ads
Ecommerce platform Bigcommerce has extended its enterprise analytics to all users, and launched a new social media product ads feature.
The analytics tools, created by third-party developer Jirafe, was previously only available to merchants on the Enterprise plan. It is now available to all Bigcommerce stores at no extra cost. Bigcommerce is creating instructional demos, webinars, in-product tips and blog posts on the new feature.
Reports include a real-time dashboard, overview dashboard, merchandising report, marketing report, orders report, customer report, purchase funnel, and abandoned cart report.
"My advice to other merchants is that you will use Jirafe more than other analytics solutions and it is more accessible," said Justin Winter, co-founder of Diamond Candles. "It also has better UI/ UX design, and you get more immediate insights to surface to the top without a degree in web analytics."
Bigcommerce previously released a set of Insights ecommerce reports for an additional fee.
