Adding Google Analytics E-commerce tracking to your store

To add new Google Analytics tracking to your store

1) upload file called "google_analytics.tpl" to skin1 folder of your x-cart installation (you can find this file in Downloads section of this support board). Do not forget to replace 2 instances of "UA-XXXXXX-1" to your Google Analytics ID in that file.

2) add this code in customer/home.tpl just before closing BODY tag:

{if $smarty.get.mode ne "order_message"}
{include file="google_analytics.tpl"}

3) in customer/main/order_message.tpl right after this code:

{if $active_modules.Interneka ne ""}
{ include file="modules/Interneka/interneka_tags.tpl" }


{*** Google Analytics conversion tracking ***}
{include file="google_analytics.tpl" products=$orders[oi].products order=$orders[oi].order}

All done. You should see ecommerce conversion data in your Google Analytics account in 24-48 hours.
