To measure conversion, you can choose to install the official WooCommerce Google Analytics plugin. However, this is not advisable because there are many users who have installed this plugin have reported issues with inaccurate data reporting. In fact, we have found out that the plugin has a poor review rating of 2.9 out of 5 star rating.

So what options do you have?

The answer is that you can choose 2 different plugins to track your online store conversions. You can utilize Google Analytics eCommerce feature, which is what we are going to show in this tutorial (also a bit advanced). The other plugin will simply use the manual conversion code.

Section 1: Sign Up for Google Analytics Account
Login to https://analytics.google.com

Click on the Admin icon (appears as gearbox as highlighted below) and click on Create Account for the sole purpose of obtaining a new Google Analytics code for your WooCommerce store. Remember to fill up all the necessary details such as Account Name, Website Name, Website URL, timezone, Data Sharing settings etc. before clicking on** Get Tracking ID** button. Next, you shall click on Ecommerce Settings as highlighted below.



Make sure to turn on Enable Ecommerce & Enabled Enhanced Ecommerce Reporting and fill up Checkout Labeling labels such as Step 1 : Checkout View; Step 2 : Login; Step 3 : Proceed to payment as shown below before clicking on the Submit button.



That's all for setting up Enhanced Ecommerce inside Google Analytics. Let's move on to installing the Enhanced Ecommerce Google Analytics plugin.
