Hi, sachin w., can you include a screenshot of your goal configuration?


The report you see is just your goal conversions report, for all goals that converted between (what looks to be ) April 6 and April 11. It represents all of your goal conversions, and the aggregated conversion value (that you set) for all goals ($15,000). So if you set values for your goals, then when those goals convert they are assigned that particular monetary value that you determined in the goal config. I'm not sure what you mean by "real conversions". If you're asking if those are actual revenue, that my guess is that it's likely not. You shouldn't be using goals to determine your ecomm revenue. In GA, you should set up standard or enhanced ecommerce tracking to give you a more accurate revenue number.


Hope this helps.
