    “Hey, I’m a bit puzzled. In GA4, the tax and shipping details are popping up as numbers, not the familiar $ format. Is one of these the correct way it’s supposed to be displayed in GA4? Here’s what I’m seeing: [link]”

    From what you’ve described, it sounds like Google Analytics 4 (GA4) is displaying your tax and shipping details as pure numerical information rather than amounts in dollars. This isn’t necessarily incorrect; GA4 often displays currency-related information as plain numbers. However, you should interpret these figures as monetary values (in dollars, if that’s your default currency). Remember, GA4 is a highly versatile tool and if you prefer to see these amounts in a dollar format, you may be able to make some tweaks in your preferred view settings or even use something like Data Studio to customize your reports.

    Yes, that is correct. GA4 displays tax and shipping details as numerical values rather than the traditional $ format. This is because GA4 treats these as numerical metrics which can be calculated and analyzed, rather than as monetary values. If you want to see them in a $ format, it might be best to calculate these on your own or within your e-commerce platform.
