Cross domain tracking with ga.js and analytics.js

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

We have a site using Universal Analytics and an external shopping cart that uses ga.js. Unfortunately we can't change the shopping cart code, so can't update it to analytics.js - is there any way that we can still link between the two, or would the only option be to downgrade the site to use ga.js and match the shopping cart?

Hi,

Unfortunately there is no way to set up cross domain tracking between ga.js and analytics.js because Universal Analytics is not compatible with ga.js. Although downgrading is not recommended it seems that it is the only option for you. Maybe you could try to ask the external shopping cart to upgrade to Universal Analytics?
