How does the TAGGRS Data Layer Plugin for WooCommerce work?

It’s actually quite simple. The plugin collects data from various interactions on your website and sends it to your analytics platform. Whether a customer is viewing a product, adding to the shopping cart, or completing a purchase, everything is captured.

The TAGGRS Data Layer Plugin works in a few simple steps:

  1. Data collection: When a visitor performs an action on your website (such as viewing a product or adding it to the shopping cart), the plugin records these interactions.
  2. Data Layer Storage: This collected data is stored in the website’s Data Layer, a central hub for user data.
  3. Google Tag Manager Integration: The Data Layer communicates with Google Tag Manager (GTM), which retrieves the data for processing.
  4. Send to Analytics: GTM sends the processed data to your analytics platform (such as Google Analytics) for analysis.
  5. Analysis and Optimization: In your analytics platform, you can analyze the data to gain insights for marketing strategies and user experience optimization.
