Does anyone know if there’s already an easy way to track transactions in Google Analytics? Something like this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-analytics-e-commerce-tracking-for-wp-e-commerce/May 1, 2010 at 1:30 am #20275
Nope, what are you really after? If it adds real value then I will consider adding it.May 8, 2010 at 2:05 pm #20276rickandersonaiaMember
What I’m after is the ability to correlate my specific sales to Google Analytics. This way I know what add campaign or email marketing campaign is generating the sale. Google has an E-Commerce addon to Analytics that does just that. This is a feature I would love to see.
Here’s a link to a presentation about it. http://services.google.com/analytics/breeze/en/ecommerce/index.htmlMay 9, 2010 at 5:24 am #20277
Sounds like a very good idea… I have added the Google Analytics ecommerce tracking for WP eStore. The following URL should explain it all:June 13, 2010 at 4:58 am #20278
Brilliant! You guys rock!June 13, 2010 at 5:04 am #20279
Ok, I don’t see this image http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/google-analytics-ecommerce-tracking-estore.gif, so I’ve requested an upgrade.
Thanks again!June 25, 2010 at 3:21 pm #20280HelpMeRhondaMember
I too do not see the Google Analytics checkbox.
I’m on Version 2.9.8 with an update (https://support.tipsandtricks-hq.com/forums/topic/custom-checkout-page-style-not-showing).
What is the latest version and how do I get an update?
Thank you.June 25, 2010 at 3:32 pm #20281
When you do get the latest .zip, you may want to use ftp to upload it. When I uploaded in WordPress’s Add New Plugins dialogue, the old version stuck around.June 26, 2010 at 1:15 am #20282
@HelpMeRhonda, Please have a look on this post to see how you can request for an update – https://support.tipsandtricks-hq.com/forums/topic/how-and-when-do-you-get-an-updateJune 26, 2010 at 1:21 am #20283
@clickradius, I have a feeling that you didn’t deactivate and delete the plugin before uploading a new one. First, deactivate and delete the older version and then upload and activate the new one (don’t worry… no saved data will get lost). When you upload from WordPress plugin uploader it doesn’t overwrite (it uploads a new copy).
If you upload using FTP client then you won’t have this issue.July 6, 2010 at 1:13 pm #20284
Ok, I have the latest version of estore and have clicked the “Enable Google Analytics Tracking” box. But so far I’ve had a few purchases go through with nothing to show for it in Google Analytics. Any idea on what other settings I may be missing?July 6, 2010 at 11:44 pm #20285
Did you follow the instructions at the following post?July 7, 2010 at 3:38 am #20286
Mostly. When i got to slides 9 and 10 in the google presentation [http://services.google.com/analytics/breeze/en/ecommerce/index.html], I wasn’t sure what to do. Does the eStore automatically fill in the code to track transactions?
Also, do I need to log into paypal and point completed orders to the thank you page that has the confirmation code on it? Or is that a setting I set in the eStore?
Thanks,July 8, 2010 at 12:31 am #20287
You should only need to follow the instructions on this page:
After the payment on PayPal are you clicking on the “Return to merchant” button and coming back to your “Thank You” page? This is required for it to work.
Please make sure you do not have “Auto Return” turned on in your PayPal profile (if you do then PayPal won’t send the payment data to the “Thank You” page and eStore won’t be able to register the sale through your Google analytics.
Also note that there is a bit of delay in your Google Analytics stats display so the transactions won’t appear instantly after payment.
