Checkout_options session scoped??

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I've found that if you make different purchases within the same session with different checkout_options, the checkout option of every purchase in this session takes the last value.


If you see the first image I made three purchases in the same sessions with checkout="sepa" then I made another purchase in the same session with checkout_option="credit_card" and then every purchase in the same session takes the last value, credit-card.

Is checkout_option session-scoped? I believed it has product scope...


Thanks in advance.

Hey Miguel,


By your test I'd say it's session scoped, is this really a problem that affects a high percentage of your transactions?  That siad you have a couple choices:


1.  Pass the checkout option as a product level custom dimension


2.  Reset the session after checkout
