To add your Analytics account to your Gomag store, you need to get the account’s ID and enter it into the platform. To do that, follow the steps below:
Get the account’s ID
Step 1: Open a Google Analytics account. To do that, log in to your Google Gmail address that you wish to associate with the Analytics account.
Step 2: Go to https://analytics.google.com/ and click on Set up for free.
Step 3: Set up an account name. You can enter your website’s name for easy identification (it doesn’t need to be the URL, this one will be requested on the next step).
Step 4: Property setup. The property name is simply a name to identify the website; therefore, the store’s URL is not necessary (yet). At the reporting time zone, choose Romania (or the country where your store activates). And for currency, you can choose Romanian Leu (RON) or USD, EUR, HUF, etc.
Don’t skip the display of advanced options!
Here you will enter the most important data:
- Click on that switch to create a universal property.
- In the Website URL section, enter the exact address of your website. Choose the http or https prefix (if you have or not an active SSL in your store).
- Check Create a Universal Analytics Property only.
Some routine questions will follow that you can answer as you like:
Step 5: Complete the process. After you create the property, you only have to check some boxes related to GDPR. Ultimately, close the suggestions box, which refers to apps.
Step 6: Get the UA tracking ID here:
In Gomag’s main menu, go to Settings, Google Analytics and enter the code in the ID Analytics section.
Step 7: Check YES into Enable Enhanced Ecommerce field - for advanced data regarding your orders' value (if you want to have eCommerce reports directly from Analytics).
You can see these data only if you have this option enabled in Google Analytics:
Check if you made the correct settings
Go to the Real-time, Overview section from your Google Analytics account.
In another tag, access your website (to see if the session/ event is traced).
Instal the Google Tag Assistant from the extensions store in Chrome. The app will tell you if the Analytics is installed correctly (or any other Google tracking product).
