Google Analytics is a popular solution to being able to collect complex analytics about your online traffic. Once an account is created and entered into the system it will automatically begin collecting detailed analytics about your users like: location, device/technology, traffic source, time on site, and the content the user viewed.

By default all of the general analytics that are included in the initial pageview request are supported. User timings, if supported by the client browser, will also be sent on the standard sampling rate. Since some businesses do not wish to track eCommerce data this is turned off by default. Check the Enable Google Analytics Ecommerce Tracking checkbox to turn this on. All future purchases will then be tracked. It's important to note that additional set up is required on Google Analytics to support ecommerce tracking. Please visit this support document to learn how to set up ecommerce tracking.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I use multiple IDs?

In short, you shouldn’t. Google recommends creating various “views” within Google Analytics to filter and present relevant data. Keep one view as raw data and then create subsequent views with filtered data. An example is that of languages. If you wish to track English and Spanish languages independently you should create a view for each language and filter by language. This is how Google recommends to solve problems such as this.

I seem to be missing transactions or my revenue numbers aren’t what’s shown in the admin. Is this correct?

Yes, due to how Google Analytics tracking works it can sometimes not execute. Reasons vary but could be due to a user blocking tracking scripts, not having JavaScript enabled, or being on a slow connection and navigating away from the page before the tracking script has executed. It’s very common and acceptable to have about +/- 10% differential between actual and Google Analytics data. Business decisions based on revenue should always be made with data in the admin reports.
