    If you don't already have a Google Analytics Property, head to the Google Analytics website and create one.

  • Hit Admin (the settings cog in the bottom left corner) and then Create New Property. You'll then be taken to the account creation screen.
  • Select an Account Name, choose the sharing settings and proceed to the next step.

  • After filling Accout ID, Container ID and Universal Analytics Tracking ID, hit Sign in to Google and allow to link your Google Tag Manager (GTM) account with your Magento Store

You will be notified to save your credentials in order not to lose them before continuing with the process.

Hit Save Config button.

Note!: If, for any reason, the Sign in to Google functionality does not work for you, try out the JSON Export process as an alternative. You can find it by scrolling down to the last section of the extension options in the Magento Admin.

Step 6A.

  • Go to WeltPixel > Google Analytics Enhanced Ecommerce > GTM API Configuration and hit Create Variables, Triggers and Tags button.

    You will be notified about the Variables, Triggers and Tags created.


Step 6B.

As an alternative, if the Sign in to Google functionality does not work, you can export the configuration as a JSON and import it into your Google Tag Manager container.

Note: After making any extension configuration changes, remember to re-generate the JSON and re-import and overwrite the existing GTM container to ensure your settings are picked up by Google.

Generate JSON.

  • Go to WeltPixel > Google Analytics Enhanced Ecommerce > JSON Export Options and hit the Generate Json for Variables, Triggers and Tags button.

    You will be notified that the JSON has been generated successfully and a Download JSON button will appear. Click the button to download the generated JSON.

Tag Manager Admin.

  • Go to yourGoogle Tag Manager Dashboard and access the Admin section and choose Import Container


Import JSON.

  • Click on the Choose container file button and find your previously generated and downloaded JSON file. Then, choose a workspace (you can choose an existing workspace or create a new one) and an import option.

    When importing your container, you will have the option to merge the imported content with the selected workspace, or overwrite the workspace entirely. Overwriting the selected workspace will remove all your existing tags, triggers and variables in that workspace, and will replace them with the imported container.

Preview and Confirm.

  • After importing the generated JSON, a preview will show up letting you know the number of changes made to the container. There should be Tags, Triggers and Variables created or updated in various amounts depending on your Magento Admin settings. Click on Confirm and you should be done with importing your settings!


Step 7.

  • After all your tags have been created in Google Tag Manager (GTM), go to Google Tag Manager (GTM) account and PUBLISH / SUBMIT all your tags by following the steps from Google Tag Manager.
  • ! NOTE: If the container is not published/submitted in your GTM account, no tracking will be available. Make sure to publish your container.
  • !! NOTE 2: Displaying statistics in your Google Analytics account based on tracked data could take from 30 minutes from 48 hours according to GTM Documentation. However, real time data shoud be visible right away if your account is correctly setup.

Step 8.

  • In your Google Analytics account, go to Admin > Ecommerce Settings in order to define the labels for checkout-funnel steps.


Checkout Steps E-Commerce setup.


In order to activate your conversion sections of your Google Analytics dashboard you have to:

  • a. Enable Ecommerce

  • b. Enable Enhanced Ecommerce Reporting

  • c. Add Checkout Labeling (Funnel Steps). Each store can have different checkout steps, so make sure to identify your checkout steps using GTM debugger (GTM container preview) before adding them here in order to avoid wrong tracking. Here is a common Magento checkout funnel example:

    • Shipping
    • Shipping Method
    • Payment and Billing
  • d. Save Ecommerce set-up.

More details about Checkout funnels here: How to setup Enhanced Ecommerce reports (Google Documentation)

How can I identify how many steps my store has?

Step 10.

  • Go to your GTM dashboard and enable preview mode
  • Go to your store and with the preview mode enabled proceed to checkout. (Make sure you have at least one product in the shopping cart!)
  • If the GTM container is in preview mode, you should already see the GTM tag debugger when loading your checkout page. (Make sure you are using the same browser for enabling preview mode and the debugging of your checkout steps.)
  • You will find that under Checkout - Data layer, each step that has loaded can be seen as in our example.
  • Step 1 (Shipping Address).
  • Great news! We've identified the first step (Shipping Address) of the checkout process presented in this example! We'll need to remember it, as in the sections below, we'll be shown how to add this step to the Google Analytics checkout funnel.

    Note: Each checkout process is different, so for your store, you may have a different option here.

  • Complete each required field with your customer information and proceed to the next step.
  • Next, we'll need to head to the following step of the checkout process, which, in our case is the Shipping Methods section, make sure you select an option and click the Next button.

  • In the preview window you will see two new events fired, a new checkout event for step 2 as well as the option associated with this step.
  • As you can see in the photo on the left, we've identified -> Step 2 (Shipping Methods) of our example. Just make a note of it, as it will have to be added to the Google Analytics checkout funnel as well.

  • Note: Each checkout process is different, so for your store, you may have a different option here.

  • Since Step 2 has multiple shipping methods, in our example, in the Checkout Option section of the GTM debugger, you can find out more specific details about the selected shipping option.

  • Note: This is informative, and you'd only need to access this if you wanted additional details about this checkout step.

  • In our checkout funnel the next step is to select Payment Method. We select the payment method and click on the Place Order button.
  • By pushing the Place Order button we are redirected to the checkout success page and we've successfully identified this step as well as being Step 3 (Payment Method) by following the same process explained in the sections above.

Configure Google Analytics checkout behavior.

Step 11.

  • Go to Admin -> Ecommerce Settings, as shown in the photo on the right.
  • Each checkout table has a number on the left hand side, that number needs to match with the checkout step identified above. Under Label Name, simply type in the name of each step of your own checkout process identified in the previous section. It's important that they match exactly, as otherwise, the checkout drop-off behavior that shows in the GA account would not be relevant to your store.
  • After a few days of data collection you will be able to visualize the checkout funnel in your report under Conversions -> Ecommerce -> Checkout Behavior. According to Google, it may take up to 48 hours for data to start flowing in.
  • Please note that reporting will be only available from the moment your setup the checkout behavior steps. It will not provide data for days prior to setup.

Step 12.

  • Woohoo, the extension is configured!

    Note: Your GA and GTM account are now configured with our pre-generated settings and ready to receive valuable information from your Magento 2 store! You can now gather valuable data and take data driven decisions! Congrats!
    Note 2: If you would like to receive even more personalized tracking data, you can always extend your GTM and GA default configurations from your account. If you would like our Google Certified Specialists to help you with that please contact our support for a quote.

General Configuration.

  • Google Tag Manager Javascript Code Position [ In the head tag / Before body close tag ] - choose position where Javascript code to be inserted. Default: In the head tag.
  • Impression Chunks Size - allows you to break up the payload into smaller chunks. We recommend limiting it to 15. The analytics.js library refuses to send a hit if the full payload size is larger than 8192 bytes. This does require quite a lot of data to be stuffed within, but it only takes some dozens of product impressions to clog up the channel
  • Product identifier [ SKU / ID ] - you can identify products in GA and GTM either by SKU or by product ID from your Magento catalog
  • Enable Brand - if you would like to have each product brand tracked in Google Analytics Ecommerce Reports - select yes and use appropriate brand attribute
  • Order Success Page Total Calculation [ Subtotal / Grandtotal ] - Calculates total amount on success page based on Subtotal or Grandtotal
  • Measure Product Clicks - This option allows ‘Product Click’ tracking on Category Page , Search results page and Related/Cross-sell/Up-sell product grids. If Product Click Tracking is enabled this option rewrites Magento_Catalog::product/list.phtml and Magento_Catalog::product/list/list.phtml. If you are using a custom theme/extension already re-writing this templates check here how you can make the necessary compatibility adjustments: How to solve GTM compatibility issues
  • Promotion Tracking [ Yes / No ] - Example of usage:
                     <a href="#" data-track-promo-id="PROMOID"
  • Exclude Tax From Transaction [ Yes / No ] - Exclude taxes amount from transaction
  • Exclude Shipping From Transaction [ Yes / No ] - Exclude shipping amount from transaction
  • Custom Dimension - Customer ID [ Yes / No ] - Use customer ID as a custom dimension
  • Custom Dimension - Customer Group [ Yes / No ] - Use customer group as a custom dimension
  • Custom Dimension - Stock Status (insctock/out of stock) [ Yes / No ] - Use customer dimension as a custom dimension

GTM API Configuration.

  • Account ID - Must be set as seen in Step 4 from Configure section
  • Container ID - Must be set as seen in Step 4 from Configure section
  • Universal Analytics Tracking ID - Must be set as seen in Step 4 from Configure section
  • I.P Anonymization [ Yes / No ] - Allows website owners to request that all of their users' IP addresses are anonymized. It help website owners comply with their own privacy policies or, in some countries, recommendations from local data protection authorities, which may prevent the storage of full IP address information.

Google Adwords conversion tracking.

  • Enable [ Yes / No ] - Enables Google AdWords conversion tracking
  • Google Conversion ID - You need a Google AdWords account adwords.google.com. Follow Google documentation on how to find Google Conversion ID for AdWords.
  • Google Conversion Label - Follow Google documentation on how to find Google Conversion Label for AdWords.
  • Google Conversion Currency Code - Fill in currency used in AdWords account. e.g. usd

Google AdWords Remarketing.

  • Enable [ Yes / No ] - Enables Google AdWords remarketing.
  • Google Conversion Code - Follow Google documentation on how to find Google Conversion Code for Google AdWords Remarketing.
  • Google Conversion Label - Follow Google documentation on how to find Google Conversion Label for Google AdWords Remarketing.

Linking your GA with AdWords Account.

  • Linking your Google Ads account to your Analytics property lets you see the full customer cycle, from how they interact with your marketing (e.g., seeing ad impressions, clicking ads) to how they finally complete the goals you’ve set for them on your site (e.g., making purchases, consuming content).
  • When you link Google Ads and Analytics, you can see ad and site performance data in the Google Ads reports in Analytics.
  • When linking GA with AdWords you can select if you want Manual or automatic tagging.
  • Please refer to this article for more information https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1733663?hl=en&utm_id=ad

Step 1.

  • Go to GA Admin

Step 2.

  • Under the Product Linking column, click on Google Ads Linking.

Step 3.

  • Once configured, click on Link accounts.
  • Presto! Google Analytics is now linked to AdWords!

Setup Custom Dimensions & Metrics.

Step 1.

  • Google Analytics allows for tracking custom Dimensions as well as custom Metrics.
  • Our extension enables you to track multiple custom dimensions specific to each custom dimension scope.
  • In GA you will need to setup custom dimensions to enable tracking.
  • Go to: GA Admin

Step 2.

  • Under the Property column, click on Custom Definitions and then Custom Dimensions

Step 3.

If you are just starting out we highly recommend creating everything as described. In Magento Admin Panel we are pre-populating each custom dimension with sample indexes for your help. Please make sure that the Custom Dimension scopes and Indexes in Magento match with the ones created in GA. In a fresh GA account, the index number will start from 1 and as you create them will increase sequentially. An example can be seen in the screenshot in Step 6.

  • Click on the +New Custom Dimension button.

Step 4.

  • Insert Custom Dimension Name.
  • Select the Custom Dimension Scope.
  • Make sure the Active box is checked.
  • Click on the Create button.

Step 5.

  • Click on the Done button to complete the creation of your Custom Dimension.

Step 6. Success!

  • This is an example. If you are an advanced GA user, go ahead and set each dimension up as you wish. Just make sure they match with what you have in Magento.
  • The index number can be found here (if created for the first time, this will be in a sequential order):
  • As soon as the Custom Dimensions are setup in GA and they are verified to match with Magento, hit the Create tags button in your Magento Admin. This will automatically assign each custom dimension to the appropriate tag in GTM.
  • If you've already created the tag, the GTM PRO version of our module will automatically update each tag as soon as you sync the Magento tags with GTM.


Preview and debug GTM tags

  • Use GTM Preview functionality
    There are many ways to troubleshoot your GTM setup. However we found that using the GTM preview mode you can quickly and easily troubleshoot your GTM setup regardless of your expertise level. Go to your GTM account and in the top right corner you will see the Preview Button
  • As soon as you enable the Preview Mode go to your website and refresh the page. You will see all the Tags that got fired.
  • Deploy your change
    After your setup all your tags make sure that you publish all your changes. Go to GTM account and in the Top Right corner your will find the Submit button. Make sure that those tags are fully published in order to be able to track everything.

Frequently Asked Questions.

  1. The GTM module is not tracking properly, what can I do?

    The first step would be to make sure you've followed all the configuration steps provided on the product page here: Google Analytics Enhanced Ecommerce Tag Manager for Magento 2. The second step is to make sure the extension is updated to the latest version, as each new release contains minor bug fixes and performance enhancements.

  2. Where can I download the latest version of the GTM extension?

    As for any purchased extension from weltpixel.com, you can find the latest version under your weltpixel.com account's "My Downloadable Products" section.

  3. Does the module track returns and cancelled orders?

    Our extension does not track returns or order cancellations.

  4. Do I need to create a "purchase" tag to track transactions?

    No purchase tag is needed. The automatically generated tags should be sufficient to track transactions. Just make sure you've followed the configurations steps on the product page: Google Analytics Enhanced Ecommerce Tag Manager for Magento 2.

  5. Do I need a GTM and GA snippet on every page?

    If you've installed the GTM tags via our automated process, the GA tag is already included in GTM, therefore, it is not needed to have an additional GA tag loaded separately.

  6. I already have a GTM with my own tags. Can I keep it and use the new tags as well?

    We suggest creating a separate GTM containter for the new/updated tags, which you can use for production, and copying over the old tags that you may need.

  7. Does the extension handle the implementation of dataLayer?

    Yes. The extension communicates Magento data to GA through data Layer, which is basically the foundation upon which the module is built.

  8. The GTM extesion overrides my template design. What can I do?

    We have a very handy article that goes over this specific issue. Take a look at it here: How to solve compatibility issues - Google Tag Manager Enhanced Ecommerce.

  9. I've just installed the module, but I can't see any data in GA. Why?

    It can take up to 48 hours for data to start flowing into Google Analytics. In the meantime, double check to make sure the configuration steps from the product page have been followed.

  10. I have Cookie restriction issues with the GTM module on Magento 2.1.x. What can I do to fix this?

    This is a bug specific to Magento 2.1.x. (Github issue#5596). We have an article written specifically to help overcome this. You can find it here: How to overcome Cookie restriction issues in Magento 2.1.x. (Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics cookie fix).

  11. Does the extension show any data directly in my Magento Admin?

    All reports can be seen and analyzed in the Google Analytics account. There's no section in the Magento Dashboard which allows for tracking.

  12. I have an error generating GTM Tags and Variables. What can I do to solve it?

    The domains where the GTM extension connects to create the tags for you automatically are listed below, make sure to allow outgoing connections to this domains or else the tags cannot be created.

    • http://www.oauth.weltpixel.com
    • https://www.googleapis.com

  13. I am using the extension on a Magento 2 instance where products can be included in multiple categories (e.g one SKU could be listed under Sale, Trending and Jackets). How does the module decide which of those 3 categories to assign the product to in the Enhanced Ecommerce Categories tab of the Product Performance report in GA?

    The product will be assigned to the first Category, based on how Magento saves this data internally - when a product is assigned to multiple categories, Magento will save the path of this product based on the first assignment. So, if you assign the product first to Jackets, and then Sale and Trending, it will show up under Jacketst in the GA report.

  14. How do subcategories work with the module? E.g. If an SKU is in the Sale subcategory under Jackets, does Sale or Jackets feed through to the GA report? Are subcategories and categories reported at at the same level or are subcategories ignored?

    If the product is assigned under Sale from 'Women/Jackets/Sale', the whole category path is sent to GTM until the root path is reached. In this example the category(s) path sent to GTM is 'Women/Jackets/Sale'
