The benefits of using Google Optimize for your eCommerce business


Integrated with Google Analytics

Optimize is natively integrated with Google Analytics, so you can quickly understand how your website can be improved.


Easy to use

Worried about having to hire someone to run A/B tests on your site, or frustrated about not knowing how to do it yourself? Don’t be. The Optimize visual editor allows for WYSIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) editing so you can change just about anything on your site with a drag and a drop. And more advanced users will enjoy the ability to edit raw HTML or add JavaScript or CSS rules directly in the editor.


Free for everyone

Like most Google’s tools, Optimize and Optimize 360 are available to everyone for free.
