Orders coming from a Referral website

Hi, I see a number of orders coming from one of the sources as referral. This seems to be a competitor website. But we haven't promoted anything anywhere on that website. How come we see many orders from this source with very few number of sessions?  Am I missing something here? 

 

Thanks a ton

Hi Abhishek,

 

Do they have any links to your website? They are referring traffic to your domain and customers are making orders which then attribute that order to that source in your reports.

Hi Adam

This is where it gets strange, because we haven't promoted anything anywhere on their website.
