Hi Kingshine,


There is some ambiguity about your question!


I’m assuming that you’re asking how to set up Google Analytics for your store.


So, here are the steps:


  1. Go to https://analytics.google.com
  2. If this is your first time on Google Analytics, under ‘Welcome to Google Analytics’ click on Start Measuring
  3. Set up your account here by providing your Account Name and configuring the data-sharing settings to control the data that you share with Google 
  4. Then, click on Next.
  5. Now, you’ll be directed to the ‘Property’ page.
  6. Enter the name of the Property, and also enter the reporting time zone and currency for the website
    • This helps Google Analytics to determine day boundary to provide reports according to your convenience, no matter where the data originated
  7. Click Next, and provide information about the business industry and type, and click Next again
  8. Now, in the ‘Data Collection’ section, you’ve to enter how you intend to use Google Analytics for your website. 
  9. Click Create, and accept all the Analytics Terms of Service and Data Processing Agreement
  10. Now, add the Data Stream to collect data
  11. Click Web
  12. Enter the URL of the primary website
  13. Enable Advanced Measurement for the website
  14. Click Create Stream 
  15. Provide ‘G-’ ID in the Google Analytics field provided by Shopify

Hope it helps!
