Face to face in the news:
2016 - Squarespace introduced new analytics for e-commerce to challenge Cargo Collective
Website creation platform Squarespace introduced new analytics features for its e-commerce businesses. Squarespace’s Commerce product was originally designed for businesses who saw e-commerce as a “secondary goal” of their website — say, a restaurant selling gift cards or a musician selling merchandise. Turns out, however, that selling online was central to many Squarespace customers, so the company revamped Commerce last year with those businesses in mind. Changes included new Commerce templates, a Commerce-specific mobile app and the promise of new analytics specifically for Commerce users — analytics that the company has now officially launched. The new Squarespace Analytics dashboard includes data on things like revenue, units sold, conversion rate, average order volume and revenue per visit.
