5. In your Google Analytics account, make sure you exclude the 2Checkout domains from the referral list. Go to Admin → Admin → Property settings → Tracking info → Referral Exclusion List.

6. Add your website’s domain and the following 2Checkout domains: secure.2checkout.com and tracking.avangate.net.

Cross-domain tracking settings

For cross-domain tracking between your website and the 2Checkout shopping cart, additional settings are needed. The Google Analytics JavaScript tracking code on your own website must be updated to include a linker to the 2Checkout domains: secure.2checkout.com and tracking.avangate.net . 

Below you have an example of the Google Analytics tracking script for gtag.js. 2Checkout Google Analytics tracking implementation is based on gtag.js.

The part highlighted in yellow represents the cross-domain tracking setting that needs to be added to the Google Analytics script on your website. 

GA_MEASUREMENT_ID from the Google Analytics script below is the Google Analytics Tracking ID, which you can find under Google Analytics → Admin → Tracking Info → Tracking Code section

<!-- Global site tag (gtag.js) - Google Analytics -->
<script async src="https://www.googletagmanager.com/gta...MEASUREMENT_ID"></script>
<script>
  window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || [];
  function gtag(){dataLayer.push(arguments);}
  gtag('js', new Date());  
  gtag('config', 'GA_MEASUREMENT_ID', {
     'linker': {
            'domains': ['secure.2checkout.com', 'tracking.avangate.net']
        }
    });

</script>

Merchant Control Panel Settings

The Analytics section in your Merchant Control Panel allows you to integrate Google Analytics in the ConvertPlus or InLine ordering engines and thus track the behavior of your shoppers on the 2Checkout pages.

  1. Log into your Merchant Control Panel.
  2. Navigate to Setup → Ordering options.

1. The 2Checkout data layer for Google Analytics tracking is placed in an iFrame. This data layer contains eCommerce information built on the structure required by Google Analytics reporting for the following events : checkout, purchase and remove from cart.

 

2. For fully enhanced eCommerce reporting in Google Analytics, it is recommended that you send information to Google Analytics from your website that includes product impression, product detail and add to cart.
