How to Use Google Analytics with CCBill



What is Google Analytics?

Google Analytics is a free service used to collect accurate and comprehensive data about visitors to your website. Analytics presents the data in a user-friendly and graphical environment that allows you to track consumer habits and behavior. Use this valuable data to improve your customers’ experience, devise targeted marketing campaigns, and concentrate efforts only on initiatives that guarantee a positive Return on Investment (ROI).

Introducing data collected from CCBill’s FlexForms (or Jpost forms) to your Google Analytics account provides a thorough insight into how consumers interact with the payment form itself. Consumer behavior at this crucial point of the sales process is vital to increasing sales and understanding how to reduce potential churn.

Information collected by Google Analytics using CCBill’s forms include:

  • Referring website information
  • Customer flow based on internal links
  • The total time a user spends on a website
  • Time on each page and the order they were visited in
  • The geographic location of the user (based on IP)
  • Information regarding user’s screen size and Flash or Java versions
  • Browser and operating system data
Adding the Google Analytics Tracking ID to your CCBill forms is straightforward and allows you to start collecting data within minutes.
