Now after you enabled analytics ecommerce tracking you would be able to see the reports. In order to view ecommerce reports navigate to reporting tab and go to conversions >> ecommerce >> overview. Right now, you will see the reports empty and no data is generated.

In order to view google analytics ecommerce tracking reports, you have to add tracking codes to your ecommerce website. The ecommerce tracking reports will take around 24-48 hours to generate data.
