Running an online business requires constant optimization of operational and marketing strategies. You need to keep on making improvements to reach the right audience the right way. To make data-driven decisions, you use various tools to answer many of your questions like:
- How many visitors reached your website/app in any specific month?
- How are sales growing up quarter-to-quarter in a particular year?
- Which marketing campaigns have resulted in maximum conversions?
But what about payment-related questions? Rarely, you will find a popular analytics tool that can pin-point on the payments side of your business. Other than the questions above, you might also want to know about:
- What percentage of sales comes from each of the supported payment methods?
- What are the primary reasons for payment failures on your online platform?
- What is the ratio of new to returning customers in a specific month?
- What is the payment success rate on your business website and app?
Wouldn’t it be great if you also know your customers and business this well? You know better than anyone else the importance of growing your online business. But do you really know how your customers engage with your online business? How do you check whatâs working and what is not?
This is where Payment Analytics by Paytm PG plays a vital role. Even if the customer behavior makes your head spin, you can make things simpler via well-framed data and make business analytics work wonders for you.
