Google analytics and google tag manager - How to implement?

I've added GA code in 'preferences' and google tag manager immediately after body tag.

 

1. When I run the preview mode in GTM, I can't see the debug window in the footer.

2. When I start recording or enable the GT assistant, it says the below.

No tags found.
Where to optimize
 
No Google Analytics HTTP responses because opted out code detected
 
Can someone help me detect the problem here? Or find me an easy step by step tutorial from start to finish.
Another question, do I really need google tag manager?
 
My website - ecommerce selling beauty products. We have just started out.
 
Any help will be appreciated! Very confused right now! 
 
Thank you

Hello,  you can track multiple events tracking with GTM. And can implement analytic code, google ads codes, facebook pixel codes etc with GTM.

Also you can refer this doc by Shopify to install GTM on your store: https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/reports-and-analytics/google-analytics/google-tag-manager

Hi

 

I've followed that but, I don't have shopify plus so don't have checkout.liquid.

"You don't need Google Tag Manager"

With all due respect, that's not a solution. GTM is an industry-standard. It's what smart brands and marketers use. It doesn't things that GA does not. 

Getting GTM into a Shopify store shouldn't be a test of will. And it certainly shouldn't be plan-based. 

GTM is a tool to help drive success. Successful stores are in Shopify's best interest. Or not?
