Hi, and welcome back to Clover Online. Google Analytics is a free and powerful tool used to monitor your website activity. It gives an in-depth look into your audience and behavior, can help you gain more traffic to your site, and more attention to your business. So let’s show you how to connect Google Analytics with your Clover Online.
To get started, go to the account information section of your Clover Online dashboard and click "Review." You can also access this screen by clicking this hamburger menu over here and scrolling down to account.
Ok, from this screen, scroll down until you see the section titled “Google Analytics.” You'll need to capture your Google Analytics Tracking ID, so let’s go to google.com/analytics.
Sign into your account if you aren’t already. From the sign in dropdown, select “Google Analytics.” Click the Admin tab on the top right. From the account dropdown, select the desired account. Then, select the desired property.
Underneath the property drop down, select “Tracking info.” Then select “Tracking Code.” Copy the Tracking ID from this box right here. You might only have one of each of these, which makes it easy, but some merchants may have more than one account.
OK, since we’re already in our Google Analytics account, let’s go ahead and enable enhanced ecommerce. We’ll also enable that in the Clover Online App, and I’ll explain the benefits of that in a moment. We’re just going to go back one step and click “Ecommerce Settings” over here. We’re going to make sure the toggle is flipped to on.
Now let’s go back to the Clover Online App.
Paste your ID into the Google Analytics field. Then, directly underneath that, check the box next to “Use Enhanced Ecommerce.” We just enabled that function on the Google Analytics end, so now you’ll get the benefits of Google Analytics’ ecommerce tracking, such as the ability to track monetary and product information from your transaction, including checkout and shopping cart activity.
Ok, that’s it. Now, just go ahead and click save, and you’ll now get the full benefits of Google Analytics and its ecommerce tracking. For more helpful how-tos, visit support.mycloveronline.com. Thanks, and I hope you enjoy selling with Clover Online.
