WooCommerce Google Analytics Integration
I don't think this works (7 posts)

    I enabled this on my woocommerce, put in my UA code in the settings, checked the marks for the actions desired, and I have never seen any action in my analytics ecommerce panel.

    Seems there is no response to anyone who posts here either.

    So... I think I figured this out. I am now able to see when people add things to their carts.

    First off, I disabled my 3rd party google analytics plugin I used to use (because when you check "Add tracking code to your site. You don't need to enable this if using a 3rd party analytics plugin." it does the same thing)

    So, in WooCommerce --> Settings --> Integration --> Google Analytics
    I have my UA-ID filled in, then I have all three checks marked.

    Now, here's the part I felt nobody explained:
    To see "Add to Cart" Actions in Google Analytics, you have to go under the "Behavior" section, then go to "Events", then you can look at "overview" or "Top Events"
    -I usually look at "Top Events"
    -Make sure you have the Date Period you want in the upper right.
    -If you look at "Event Action" it will show you how many "Add to Cart" actions have happened.
    -If you look at "Even Label" it will tell you what the SKU from Woocommerce was.

    This way, I can tell if there were some products added to someone's cart that didn't get bought that day, by cross-referencing with that day's sales. Then I will ask myself: Why didn't they buy it? Investigate...

    Where is "behavior" and do you get to see where the sales are coming from? (which URL) I have to have that for my client ... they are paying per sale. Kind of wanting an affiliate program without the affiliate program fees :)

    When you log in to Analytics, Behavior is a section on the Left-Hand Side.

    No, you do not get to see where the sale came from, as far as I can see.

    If you are wanting an affiliate program in WooCommerce, why don't you use:
