Time, Hour, Minute Definitions

When an ecommerce transaction occurs, does Google Analytics record the time of the purchase? Reviewing the various time dimensions/metrics available, and their definitions, I cannot find what these recorded times actually mean. Is it the start of the Users' sessions? Does GA record the actual time an ecommerce transaction occurs, or a goal?

 

If I pull Transaction ID, Date, Hour, Minute into a custom report, what is that actually telling me? 

 

Thanks,

Scott

The time dimensions report the time of the 'hit', so if you have an ecommerce transaction ID in your report, it would be the time that the transaction itself was recorded.
