Enhanced Ecommerce - How to track cart quantity update?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

The documentation of the Enhanced Ecommerce plugin doesn't say a word on how to deal with the user changing the quantity of a line in their cart.

 

There are multiple solutions for this, but each of them has some serious drawbacks:

 

1) Calculate the difference and add or remove that.

 

2) Remove the line and then add with current quantity.

 

Method 1 has the advantage of passing the (most) correct user interaction. Since add/remove doesn't seem to have a nonInteraction parameter, using method 2 would mean wrong numbers of adds/removes.

 

Method 2 has the advantage of being able to change the price if a price change has happened after the product has been added the first time. For example: after adding more units the customer now has a lower unit price. Using method 1 would mean that either the amounts in GA are incorrect, or you would have to calculate price differences and fictionally give the latest added units a lower price.

 

Which of the two methods is preferable?
