Missing Transaction IDs Information trying to prove all data is coming through to Analytics

Hi, 

 

Within Google Analytics I can see 'Transactions' within 'Source/Medium -  secondary dimension - Transaction ID' 

 

But for some reason there is some transactions 'grouped' 

 

So for example on All Traffic - Source/Medium- there is Google/CPC with 14 transactions, when I add 'Secondary Dimension; of 'transaction ID'

 

There is multiple 'Google/CPC' some with one transaction ID and some with multi transactions. 

 

For example there is one transaction ID will 7 transactions!!

 

How can I view the actual transactions IDs for these 7 transactions?

Hi,

 

Normally each transaction should have a unique transaction ID. It seems that the transaction tracking code for the same transaction is fired multiple times in different sessions. This can happen when the user refreshes the page after the session has expired or they bookmark it and coming back at a later time. You need to make sure that the transaction code is fired only once in order to avoid this behavior.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have questions.
