If you running an eCommerce marketplace platform, ensuring it gets successful is not that easy. Satisfying the dynamic needs of users, offering a proper user experience, and managing profits simultaneously is difficult.
But, with the right actions by measuring KPIs, these problems can get sorted easily.
1. Customer Retention Rate on Your eCommerce Marketplace
This metric lets you know how many customers are repeatedly coming and purchasing products from your eCommerce business. In short, the CRR measures how long a customer stays loyal to your brand and how much time he/she continues to purchase from your business. Also, you can measure how many customers continuously left your brand within a certain time. This is known as the churn rate.
Here is a quick formula to help you find the churn rate percentage.
Churn rate = Total customers – X no. of customers at end of month/ no. of customers at starting of month X 100
CRR metric helps you know the overall performance of your eCommerce platform and lets you know how many average users are active on your eCommerce stores (daily/weekly/month). You can use the same formula to calculate the churn rate for weekly users. The churn rate helps you to know the average percentage of users who left your eCommerce store and how you can decrease your churn rate effectively.
2. Average Order Value of Your eCommerce Store
This metric helps you to know the average value a customer spends on your eCommerce platform to purchase a product or service. In short, an average order value that a customer spends. With this KPI, you are able to know if an individual is continuously spending a certain amount on your platform. In addition, you are able to know what is the average order value customers spend on your platform.
So, measuring this KPI helps you to know where you need to improve and how you can upsell your customers to make more purchases on your platform. Also, you can know if you are able to make upsell or cross-sells to potential customers of your eCommerce platform. This is possible when you bifurcate the customers on their spending and categorize them from higher spending to lower spending. So, the customers who spend higher on your platform are the potential ones.
3. Lost Carts or Abandonment Rate
This metric allows you to know the percentage of customers who add the item to the cart and left the store without making a purchase. So, you get an idea about items added to the card, the value of the cart, and how long they were on the platform. By this metric, you are able to predict that customers were interested to make the purchase but left the store somehow without making any purchase.
However, you can make strategies to reduce your abandonment car rate and increase the sales lifecycle to make your store more profitable in the long run.
4. Reorder Rate
With reorder rate KPI, you are able to know which products are being purchased by consumers the most. So, you can manage your store products according to and keep the extra stock of products that are high in demand during a certain period or season.
With this metric, you can reduce the bounce rate of your eCommerce store and increase your consumers’ trust in the platform to make new purchases. Having the right amount of products in the store helps you increase the store purchase and profitable in the long run.
5. Return on Investment
The most important KPI of your eCommerce software solution. With this metric, you are able to know whether your eCommerce platform is profitable or not. If yes, then how much percent of profit do you get on a certain amount of investment.

This way, you are able to measure the money efficiency on your platform and how you can improve your eCommerce platform to make more profits. There are several ways through which you can measure your ROI.
