ECPower's "Popular Order Tags" insights provide a detailed look at the order preferences and behaviors across your Shopify store, helping to refine your approach to meet customer needs effectively.

What Are 'Order Tags'?

Order tags in Shopify are labels assigned to each order to classify them based on certain criteria. These tags can be set manually through Shopify Flow or automatically via prebuilt Shopify functionality. Additionally, third-party apps such as subscription services or gift ordering platforms often use tags to denote specific features or behaviors associated with an order.
