Event Tracking onSubmit Code

I'm trying to set up event tracking, but it doesn't work. The event counts zero on Google Analytics. I think there is something wrong with my code. Any ideas on what is wrong? Thank you.

 <input id="submit_o2830002"         name="/atg/commerce/order/purchase/CartModifierFormHandler.checkout" value="goCheckOut" class="endbtn" type="submit" onsubmit="ga('send', {
                        &nbsp; hitType: 'event',
                        &nbsp; eventCategory: 'Order',
                        &nbsp; eventAction: 'goCheckOut',
                        &nbsp; eventLabel: 'click goCheckOut'
                        });">

Hi,

 

You need to add the onsubmit event to your form tag, not to the submit button, like this:

 

<form action="#" onsubmit="ga('send', {
                        hitType: 'event',
                        eventCategory: 'Order',
                        eventAction: 'goCheckOut',
                        eventLabel: 'click goCheckOut'
                        });">
<input id="submit_o2830002" name="/atg/commerce/order/purchase/CartModifierFormHandler.checkout" value="goCheckOut" class="endbtn" type="submit">
</form>

Hope this helps.
