we use WP eStore 7.0.7 w/ Google E-Commerce Enabled + Google Analyticator 188.8.131.52. We were using Google Analytics for WordPress, but this doesn’t support universal analytics (specifically demographics and interest reports). However, since then, the e-commerce stopped to work. I’ve checked it using Google Analytics Debugger and it seems no ecommerce data get sent to google at all. Any solution?April 25, 2014 at 3:05 am #62444
If you read the following documentation then you will see that the “Google Analytics for WordPress” plugin is a requirement. We picked that plugin because it was the most popular Google analytic plugin and it had API that we could use to do our tracking.
Does the other plugin that you are using also has an API (a WordPress filter) that we can use to push our tracking to that plugin? Please ask that plugin’s developer that question and then get back to me. If they have a similar API then we will add an option so you can use e-commerce tracking with that plugin too.June 5, 2014 at 1:50 pm #62445
We moved to NK Google Analytics plugin and there is option called “Custom tracking code”. Would that help?June 5, 2014 at 11:24 pm #62446
You can ask the developer of that plugin if e-commerce tracking can be done with their plugin. If they say yes then ask for documentation and then I will be able to read their documentation and go from there.June 21, 2014 at 2:50 pm #62447mikemayhem3030Member
Admin – this had gotten me too, since your instructions only mention to be tracking analytics. i.e. IF YOU DON’T ALREADY DO THIS…. then get the Google Analytics for WordPress Plugin.
I had been tracking GA already through pasting into the theme header my tracking code – and skipped step one… my sales haven’t been showing up – so I’m hoping the reason is the GA analytics plugin is definitely needed. If so – I suggest you amend the link below to make it very clear that you need the plugin.June 21, 2014 at 11:26 pm #62448
I have updated the documentation. Sorry for the confusion.June 24, 2014 at 9:58 pm #62449mikemayhem3030Member
I think there’s a way we can improve this – can you drop me an email to discuss potential add on building by myself

Sure.. I have sent you an email. Please let me know if you don’t receive it.July 2, 2014 at 12:24 pm #62451
It might be a good idea to start to look for an alternative to “Google Analytics for WordPress plugin”. I cannot say it is a bad plugin, but the support for Universal Analytics still seems to be far away (last update of plugin on 16.04.2014, last info on Yoast.com from 04.06.2014 w/o any specific dates). Until then we have no eCommerce and it is really a “must” for our business.
Is there a way how we could program it manually, so that eStore would be able to send that data to Google regardless of which wordpress GA plugin we use? We could code it, but would need to know some starting point, e.g. where to look.July 3, 2014 at 7:11 am #62452
Mike made an addon to do the e-commerce tracking. It doesn’t need any other plugin for it to work. Grab it from the following page:July 3, 2014 at 8:14 am #62453
Thanks, works like a charm!
