Analytics missing transactions

N/A

Hello!

 

Lately I've been noticing that Analytics is missing some transactions. For example today we got 87 orders, but when checking with analytics it only shows 82 orders so there are 5 transaction id that are not recorded at all. Why is it such a big difference. This would never happen before, i noticed this about 1-2 weeks ago and it has been happening everyday since then. Is there any change that has been done lately that would be the reason for this happening?

 

I would really appreciate some help if someone has a clue what the reason could be

 

Many thanks!

Hi,
I assume 87 orders showing in your website CMS. If that is the case Please check below post.

Thanks for the reply santosh.

The thing is that we have been online for about 6 months now, but it has never been this much off before. I don't know why only this month there is a big difference between how many orders we actually get and what Analytics is showing.

Here are some examples on months before:
80 actual orders - 79 Analytics transactions
75 actual orders - 75 Analytics transactions
62 actual orders - 62 Analytics transactions
50 actual orders - 50 Analytics transactions
47 actual orders - 46 Analytics transactions

Here are some examples on this month and you can see a big difference, why would this suddenly start happening this month?
91 actual orders - 84 Analytics transactions: 91-84= GA missing 7 transactions
78 actual orders - 74 Analytics transactions: 78-74= GA missing 4 transactions
65 actual orders - 60 Analytics transactions: 65-60= GA missing 5 transactions
61 actual orders - 58 Analytics transactions: 61-58= GA missing 3 transactions
44 actual orders - 43 Analytics transactions: 44-43= GA missing 1 transactions

Could it be due to a change that has been done that makes Google Analytics now secures all web traffic?

The reason why i want this to be fixed is so Analytics don't miss any data so that i can optimize my Adwords campaigns further. But now that it is missing data i dont feel motivated to work with my adwords campaigns because it seems that the data is incorrect and thus i cannot really optimize it if is not collecting all the data.

I would really appreciate help here.

many thanks!
