Based on the most common questions in everyone’s feedback – on this thread, over email, and via formstack – We’ve put together three resources on how to get the most out of Google Analytics reporting:
Hey everyone – Here is the step by step instructions on how to set it up.

YES, you can set up eCommerce tracking. That is the one of (if not the most) powerful aspect to this feature. You can turn on eCommerce tracking inside your Google Analytics Profile settings which sits inside your Google Analytics Admin -> Account -> Properties -> Profile -> View Settings -> eCommerce Settings. Here is a screenshot of what eCommerce Settings looks like.Once eCommerce is turned on, you can click on the ‘eCommerce’ link on most of the report dashboards which will attribute revenue with the report. More specifically, you can see
- which traffic sources generate the most revenue
- which landing pages generate the most revenue per visit
Are you curious if you should add more language translation to your items? Have a look at revenue per visit for different languages, and you can define opportunities for translation.
You can also create ‘Advanced Segments’ to see how traffic finds you that ultimately purchased a single item.
I wanted to see how familiar everyone was with GA before rolling out detailed education. Based on these next two months, (I’m off during the first half of Sept for my wedding), I’ll probably be putting together some more education around how to get the most out of GA and if dtbaker doesn’t beat me to it!
In short, this tool performs similar to if you had it running on your own website. Super powerful stuff. It also tells you how someone navigated to the website and then navigated to your item. This is mentioned in more detail in the setup guide. So, for example, if someone navigates directly to the ThemeForest homepage and then goes to your item on ThemeForest, this visitor will count as a ‘direct’ visitor to your item.
