Wondering how many sales you’re making from each country?
As you’ve likely found out already, WooCommerce doesn’t include any geolocation data in its reports.
However, this missing data is easily uncovered with the addition of a new analytics tool.
In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to get country (and city) data for your WooCommerce store with the Independent Analytics plugin.
How to install Independent Analytics
Independent Analytics is a free plugin we developed as a simpler alternative to Google Analytics.
You can install it by searching for “Independent Analytics” in your Plugins > Add New menu. Or, you can download it from the link below and follow these steps to upload it to your site.
If you download from our site, you’ll also get our Welcome Email Series with additional tips and tricks for using your new analytics.
Once installed on your site, Independent Analytics will begin tracking visitors right away. Now let’s talk about where to find the geographic data.
Where to find the country data
In the Analytics dashboard, you’ll find a Geographic report with stats and a world map showing where your visitors came from.
Below the chart, you’ll find a table with metrics for every country:
As you can see, this gives you a great overview of all the countries your visitors came from, plus additional metrics like the session duration and bounce rate.
Now let’s cover how you can get sales data into this report.
How to see WooCommerce sales per country
To get WooCommerce sales data, you’ll need to upgrade to Independent Analytics Pro, which is still available at a steep discount for our early adopters.
With the Pro version installed, new WooCommerce metrics are available in the table, such as orders, net sales, and conversion rate.
These metrics can be quickly enabled in the table so you can see which countries generated the most sales.
With just a click, you can sort the countries by sales or orders to immediately find where most of your buyers live.
The best part is that Independent Analytics Pro doesn’t require any configuration at all. As a WordPress plugin, it runs entirely inside WordPress, so it integrates with WooCommerce without requiring you to touch any code or tracking scripts yourself.
The WooCommerce sales metrics are also available in the Referrers report, allowing you to compare sales from Google and Facebook, for instance.
Conversion rate per country (and more)
While seeing your gross sales per country is great, you can take your analysis even further with the additional metrics.
For instance, you can enable the Conversion Rate column to see the percentage of visitors from each country that convert to a sale. You might also like the Earnings Per Visitor and Average Order Volume metrics for uncovering the most profitable geolocations.
To get the best results, you may want to ignore any country with only one sale, to prevent skewed data from outliers.
Filters are a powerful tool for digging deeper into your data, and you can read more about them here.
One last thing you should know is how to see sales per city too.
How to see sales per city
In the toolbar, you’ll find a button that says “Group by Country.” You can click this and switch the grouping to “City” in order to view city data instead.
After making this change, the table will display metrics for every visiting city.
Find your WooCommerce store’s most profitable countries
While WooCommerce doesn’t provide geographic data, it’s easier than ever to create a sales-by-country report with the right tools.
