Importing Product Cost against SKU as a Custom Metric (not working)
I am trying to import my product cost against SKU but it's not working. Here is my set up process:
1) Created a new custom metric called Product Cost
2) Set up a new data set ready for import
3) Successfully uploaded the product cost data csv with correct headings
4) Built a custom report with SKU against my custom metric but $0 data
Any help would be great - or some advice on where to look where I could be making an error.
Re: Importing Product Cost against SKU as a Custom Metric (not working)
short question - did any transaction happen after the .csv file has been uploaded? Data import works only for subsequent hits and it will not auto populate historic data - unfortunately.
I recently wrote a short guide on the subject which provides some additional ideas on how to use the metrics - http://escapestudio.net/quick-tips-to-evaluate-adwords-based-on-profit-in-google-analytics/.
