Install the GTM code in Checkout extensibility

Hey guys,

How can I install the tracking code for the Google Tag Manager to the checkout extensibility?

I had already used this guide, and added the custom pixel in the Customer events according to this tutorial.

But I can't track the events in the Google tag manager.

Please advise.

Thank you!

Hi @Dan1234567890,

 

I'm Irene from UpTag: Google Tag + Ads Tracking.

Our app supports Shopify merchants in installing Google Analytics 4, Google Tag, and Google Ads Tracking into their Shopify store without the need for embedding codes. With UpTag, you only need to insert your Tracking ID into the app, and UpTag will set up all the tracking tools for you.

 

With the event purchase for the checkout page, you only need to insert a short script of UpTag into the Order status page.  Hope that UpTag has the opportunity to support you in setting up GA4, Google Tag, and Google Ads. You can find the app at https://apps.shopify.com/uptag-google-tag-conversion

 

Best regards,

Irene | UpTag

Hi guys! 

Maybe this will help you to understand the issue. 
Right now seems to be complicated to insert GTM or any scripts in the new checkout extensibility.

Apparently, Shopify is trying to incentivate his users to use the native conectors with GA4, Meta, etc.

I am trying to find a workaround to solve this, but right now seems to be complicated.

I know it is not the answer you were waiting for but I hope it helps!

We've had success using the Customer Events panel in the Shopify admin and updating the data layer variables and triggers to match the Shopify standard events API. A few tags/pixels have been more involved, but most are working without much extra work.

We are having the same issue for a client. To clarify, did you need to set up each of the events and tags in GTM for it to work?

¡Top! We have checked it too, we are working on it, as you said, a little bit of technical work is needed to do it successfully...but at least, there is an option. Any advice to workaround it? Thanks in advance
