Hello, I am attempting to get e-commerce tracking running with the EpicPlugins Addon, and the instructions are a bit unclear:
The original eStore instructions:
The EpicPlugins Addon:
This original instructions say that _instead_ of using older method of adding the Yoast GA plugin and activating the GA tracking checkbox in eStore…you can simply use the EpicPlugins addon (that says it will increase the accuracy of ecommerce reporting by not requiring the purchaser to go back to the Thank You page).
I added the EP plugin (documentation is VERY light, even in the plugin zip) and I saw that an ‘E-Commerce Tracking’ menu item was added under eStore…I activated it BUT no GA tracking code appeared in my homepage site source.
1. Am I doing this correctly?
2. Does “Enable Google Analytics Tracking” need to be checked if you are using the addon?
3. Do I need to use the Yoast plugin in conjunction with the EP plugin? or will that cause duplicate tracking.October 10, 2014 at 10:56 pm #66014
Hi, All you need to do is keep the addon activated. So regarding your questions:
1. Does “Enable Google Analytics Tracking” need to be checked if you are using the addon?
2. Do I need to use the Yoast plugin in conjunction with the EP plugin?
No. That one addon will handle everything (not other plugin is required if you use that addon).October 12, 2014 at 9:10 pm #66015
Okay, I have unchecked the “Enable Google Analytics Tracking” and deactivated the Yoast plugin. I also added my GA tracking ID to the EpicPlugins settings page. But now I see no GA tracking code at all in my code:
Can this be correct?
Thank you for the quick response.
PS – I’m using WordPress 4.0 in this install.October 12, 2014 at 10:08 pm #66016adminKeymaster
Have you done a test transaction after you installed that other addon? Keep the debug option enabled when you do the test. The Google analytics data is about 24 hours delayed. So make sure to wait a little after you do a transaction.October 12, 2014 at 10:44 pm #66017
@astridman, This addon works in a different way. You won’t see any tracking code in the HTML source.October 13, 2014 at 7:00 pm #66018
@wpCommerce okay good to know, I’ll take your word for it. I guess I’m so used to having/seeing/including the GA js code snippet. I’ll check my GA account shortly to see if data is still being sent.
So safe to say, tracking will continue on regular (non ecommerce) related pages?October 13, 2014 at 10:28 pm #66019
