Shopify Analytics Goal Conversion

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

I am trying to integrate my Shopify account into my google analytics account specifically use goals and track goal conversions. However, I am unable to do so.  I have put in the google tracking info code into my Shopify account but to no avail. Specifically, I want Google Analytics to track my Shopify Thank You page.

 

I have consulted documentation online but they only show me how to create a new google analytics account and then go about creating a goal. However, I don't want to do that since it adds so much complexity to my Google Analytics account since I use Charge bee and Shopify for customer purchases. I want to integrate Shopify purchase goal tracking into my existing company Google Analytics account.

 

Below are screenshots of problems I am facing.

Is this your GA ID UA-****5328-1? The only data you can see is your own or have access to in GA

Yes that is my GA ID. I dont get why you say the thing about accessing other data. I just need the shopify account to integrate in my GA

I just wanted to confirm if that GA ID was yours or not because I've seen a lot of instances where users put in a URL of a site in which their GA code isn't installed on their thank you page.
Have there been any conversions/orders on your site for the last 7 days?

Yes that is my GA ID.

Nope. It shows a 0% conversion rate.

I noticed that you also didn't set-up the Goal URL correctly if you are using Regular Expression
checkout.shopify.com\/12105358\/checkouts\/ab7c7ca71960403aa86c1bc3ca70bafe\/thank_you
^Does this Thank you page generate a dynamic URL every time a new order comes? Find out if it is because you would then have to change your regular expression

and If there hasn't been any orders for the last 7 days then you won't be able to verify it until you get a conversion

Unless The Goal URL is being rewritten with the domain name included, the page would not appear with the https//checkout.shopify.com portion. Confirm the URL as Google Analytics sees it by checking your Behavior > All Pages report and enter what GA is displaying.

Goal URL: (note that forward slashes do not need to be escaped)
/12105358/checkouts/ab7c7ca71960403aa86c1bc3ca70bafe/thank_you

Also - that particular URL looks suspiciously like it is coded for a specific user's individual purchase. Make sure (in the Behavior report) that it is the same URL for multiple purchases. You may need to make it more generic like (.*)/thank_you

Sorry for the short term -- the Behavior > Site Content > All Pages report contains all pages viewed on your site. You can filter by 'checkout' by typing the word in the 'advanced' filter box just above the table.
