Being able to understand your sales is key for any business at any level. Having the tools to be able gain insights into why your sales are performing well or unwell, is also key as you can't track or measure the sales behaviour, without the proper tools.
In Mobi2Go, we offer several tools to help understand your sales performance & one of those is being able to see a full summary of the sales placed through your online storefront.
This is known as the Sales Orders report & it will give you some insights about the type of orders that have been placed through your website, via Mobi2Go.
If you need to obtain all data on a customer for GDPR (Right of access by the data subject); running this report is one of the ways you can provide the data to the customer.
