Instructions

View 1: Find an aggregate of all online and offline conversions

To view the sum of all online and offline conversions (and their associated value), you can create a report to find all conversions and all conversion values.

View 2: Segment by store sales conversions

To separate your store sales conversions and their conversion value from other conversions reported in your Google Ads account, you can create a segment in your reports. Before you begin, make sure you've already added the "All conv." and “All conv. value” columns to your reports.

View 3: Add reporting columns for store sales (only for retail and restaurant businesses using custom variables)

  1. Sign in to your Google Ads account.

    • Store sales avg. conv. value (Store sales conv. value / Store sales conv. count)
    • Store sales CPA (Cost / Store sales conv. count)
    • Store sales ROAS (Store sales conv. value / Cost
  6. Click Apply. The selected columns will now appear in your reports.

Verify your current store sales value model (for retailers and restaurants)

The model used to provide store sales value may change in some cases for retail and restaurant advertisers. For example, some advertisers may receive fully automatic store sales value data (United States only), while others may receive dynamic value data based on uploaded in-store transactions. Advertisers who aren’t uploading in-store transaction data or don’t upload data in a consistent manner can identify value data based on a default conversion value.

The following steps can help advertisers understand which store sales model was used for a given timeframe:

  1. Sign in to your Google Ads account.
  2. Click Campaigns, Ad groups, or Keywords in the page menu on the left.
  3. Select the desired date range.
  4. Click the segment icon Segment above the statistics table.
  5. Select Conversions, then Conversion Action. Select your current store sales conversion action.
  6. Click the columns icon A picture of the Google Ads columns icon above the statistics table.
  7. Select Conversions, then click the checkbox next to “Value / all conv.”.
  8. In the statistics table, review and take note of the “Value / all conv.” for the store sales action.
  9. Click the tools icon Google Ads | tools [Icon] , then under “Measurement”, click Conversions.
  10. Click on your store sales conversion action.
  11. Identify the default value shown in the “Value” field.

For the date range selected, if the “Value / all conv.” value identified in step 8 matches the default value in step 11, then store sales value data was generated using the default value. If the two values don’t match, then the store sales value data was generated using in-store or automatic value data based on whether you’re currently uploading data.

Using the Diagnostics page for store sales

If you have questions regarding store sales conversion reporting in your account, use the Diagnostics page to get the overall status of store sales conversion reporting by channel (network and interaction type). Here you can find more detailed information, such as specific issues in your account that may be affecting store sales conversion reporting. The Diagnostics page will also show whether your account is currently optimized for bidding to store sales conversions.

How to access the Diagnostics page

  1. Sign in to your Google Ads account.
  2. Click the tool icon Google Ads | tools [Icon] in the navigation menu.
  3. Click Measurement, then select Conversions to open the “Conversion actions” tab.
  4. Click on the active store sales conversion action name to open the “Store sales” page, then click Diagnostics.

Note: Your account needs to have the store sales conversion action to access the Diagnostic page. You also need to have at least one active campaign for Search, Shopping, Youtube, or Display to identify any diagnostic details for the relevant network.

If you don’t have the store sales conversion action in your account, find out if you’re eligible.

How to review the Diagnostics page

The Diagnostics page for store sales conversion action provides the following details to help advertisers better understand the current status of their store sales reporting:

  • Current status: Indicates the store sales reporting status for each channel (for example: Search, Video, Display) and interaction type to clarify which channels are reporting as of the last update.
  • Transaction upload status: Indicates whether the account has uploaded transaction data that falls within the most recent period of 14 days, 14-30 days, or over 30 days.
    • This section only shows for advertisers who are eligible to upload in-store transaction data to their account.
    • Advertisers who are uploading in-store data should make sure to upload consistently and include recent transaction data that falls within the last 30 days (within the last 14 days recommended). If there’s no eligible transaction data within the last 30 days, the system will use the conversion action default value to report store sales conversion value.
  • Conversion count data thresholds: Indicates whether the account has enough data to meet the privacy and reporting thresholds and report store sales counts.
  • Conversion value data thresholds: Indicates whether the account has enough data to meet the privacy and reporting thresholds and report store sales values.
  • Include as account default goal: Indicates whether the advertiser is including their store sales conversion into “Conversions” for use with Smart Bidding.
