Having trouble setting up Google Analytics Goals properly

Hi all,

How is everyone setting up GA goals to track your Shopify store? And did you use a Destination goal or an Event goal?

 

My issue with Destination Goal:

 

My completed checkout page starts with : https://checkout.shopify.com (with a series of numbers following)

Since a regular checkout page (even without completing checkout) also starts with https://checkout.shopify.com/, GA would log each person who simply makes it to the checkout page as a "completed checkout"

How can one get around that? Or is there a different way to set up goals properly in Google Analytics for a Shopify site?

 

Thank you all in advance!

Hi Tim,

All your questions are answered in this guide. You'll want to use a destination goal. A template is provided in the article so you can setup a funnel/goal in 30 seconds for a Shopify checkout.
