How to get complete sales and marketing data from Shopify to Google Analytics
It's essential to have a clear view of your checkout funnel, but Shopify stores find this difficult in Google Analytics. Here's how to set up better tracking.
Complete marketing attribution is difficult with Shopify and Shopify Plus because the marketing campaign interaction, like on a PPC ad on Facebook Ads, looks like it's a different user than the customer who checks out on your ecommerce site. If it looks like a disproportionate amount of your site traffic is "Direct", this is likely the issue. Littledata's smart tech fixes this by stitching sessions together automatically.
The easiest way to get complete Google Analytics data like Enhanced Ecommerce from Shopify is just to use the Littledata's Shopify app for Google Analytics. This includes complete Enhanced Ecommerce data and it's far more affordable and reliable than any other option. All Littledata plans include unlimited connections and integrations with apps like Recharge, Bold Subscriptions, CartHook and Refersion.
You can also hire a developer to try to set up custom Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager (GTM) tracking for Shopify, and keep them on retainer, but that is an expensive way to do this - and it doesn't guarantee accurate data! Instead, if you need more support consider a Littledata enterprise plan with account management from a Google Analytics expert. We offer different options for enterprise support, and can recommend agency partners when needed.
