http to https shopping cart and direct traffic

We are currently seeing a lot of direct/none visits with as landing page our shopping cart which is on a subdomain. I assume this is because the website is http and the shopping cart https. Is this a correct assumption and would this be fixed when changing the website to https too?

 

Thank you in advance

You can exclude specific domains from being recognized as referral traffic sources in your Analytics reports. A common use for this feature is to exclude traffic from a third-party shopping cart to prevent customers from being counted in new session and as a referral when they return to your order confirmation page after checking out on the third-party site.

Hi GA Guru, thank you for your reply. We have done this weeks ago. the subdomain ****.checkfront.com is set in the referral exclusion list. It doesn't show up as referrer but shows up in the direct/none.

Hey @Auke

 

I'm facing the same problem with a current project. Did you find the solution to this issue?

 

Thanks.
