Customer Lifetime Value and ROAS Tracker App – Shopify


When people discuss e-commerce, the only thing they think of is an online store. E-commerce owners know it involves much more than just that. 

From loading products to the store, managing discount options, and shipping, e-commerce is demanding at every stage. The best part about setting up an e-commerce store, the merchants can easily find thousands of pre-designed plugins and extensions to meet their business needs.

However, e-commerce demands are continuously evolving, and Shopify merchants want more features, right on their dashboard. On a recent occasion, the Shopify development agency at The Brihaspati Infotech had the opportunity to develop a custom app that offers detailed insights into past sales, profit margins, and net investments.

The app plays a key role in understanding your customers, thus helping you with precise marketing pitches.

CAC and its impact on Net Profit Margin

An organization’s net profit is largely decided by the Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC) and the value generated by a customer over their lifetime (Lifetime Value). For instance, an e-commerce store sells one subscription product for $100 per month. The store spends $120 to acquire a new subscriber via its ad campaigns. The product and its delivery cost $50 to the store.

Customer Lifetime Value

The data can prove crucial for the store. While the same $120 has been spent to acquire all the three subscribers, only one manages to offer profit. The store can use the data to find similar customers who can stay loyal and offer better profit margins.

Here, for example, the store can target their male customers aged between 45 and 54.

Profit Tracking solutions get you right there, helping you analyze all the factors that yield profits for your store and the ones that result in a loss. Shopify merchants can find readily available solutions for tracking the profit on their stores. 

Our client, however, wanted better insights into customer behaviour:

  • Campaign performances (Google and Facebook Ads)
  • Category wise Ad performance (Gender, Age and Location)
  • Best selling products and collection
  • Calculating customer lifetime value (LTV) and Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC)

The client found no Shopify profit tracking app that had all the features under one roof. The client had to juggle between multiple Shopify applications for analyzing the same set of information. That is when he looked out for help.

And, we were more than willing to help him here. Monitoring LTV and CAC on Shopify only gets better!!!

Best Selling Products

As an online seller, Shopify merchants are interested in knowing their best selling products. Marketing them on a broader platform and to the right audience can undoubtedly fetch them more revenue.

But then again, they are required to go through months of data to analyze the sales and revenue generated by each product. For larger online stores like Amazon, this task is beyond possibility.

Our custom Shopify ROAS calculator app eases the herculean task by automating the results. The app picks the best selling products and collections from the Shopify store, the number of orders and the net profit generated by them.
