Tracking Plans and Event Schemas

Updated on 2023-01-16

Littledata automatically integrates with Shopify and BigCommerce sites to capture granular data about customer touchpoints across the user journey, including sales, marketing, customer and product performance data. Our data layer uses detailed, predefined tracking schemas to ensure accurate data in multiple destinations.

Here are some of the benefits of a predefined tracking schema:

  • Works automatically to ensure consistent data in multiple destinations
  • Useful for companies with multiple brands/stores to have a mirrored set of events between them which helps with easier cross-store analysis, as well as simplifying the tracking maintenance across all stores
  • Ideal for custom audience building across platforms
