-- HikaShop version -- : 4.0.2
-- Joomla version -- : 3.9.0
-- PHP version -- : 7.1.27
-- Browser(s) name and version -- : Chrome 73.0.3683.86

Hi there,

I just wanted to check that I have Hikashop correctly set up to be sending ecommerce data over to Google Analytics.

- Please find attached a screen shot of how the current Hikashop plugins are set up. I've also attached a screen shot of what our acquisition overview looks like, the only traffic that's being registered is (other). When looking at the source/medium, we only seem to be registering (not set) / (not set).

Any advice would be most appreciated.

Hi,

Could you try to update to HikaShop 4.0.3.
We added some fixes regarding the source/medium in HikaShop 4.0.3
If you still have the issue with new orders with HikaShop 4.0.3
Please edit an order in the hikashop_order table via your phpmyadmin and provide what you have in the column order_payment_params so that we can better understand the situation.

Hi there Nicolas,

I've left the GA account for a short while after updating to Hikashop 4.0.3, I've attached a screen shot of what the Acquisition overview currently looks like, I've set the time period from the 09/03/19 to the 09/04/19. I think we may still be having problems with order being placed through the 4.0.3 version?

- I've taken a look at phpmyadmin and the order_payment_params are currently all blank.

Thanks once again for your help.

Hi Guys

It has been some time and I really could do with a hand with this. I don't mind if this is something that you will charge me for but I really need some help with it.

Cheers

Hi,

The issue on your checkout is that when you have a form on the form, there is a javascript error with the validate.js system of Joomla:
monosnap.com/file/PLMZezrJYnPzqbAo0N9KBlwNDI1kEL
Because of that, the javascript we added to get the source/campaign from GA is not run and thus the information is missing in the order params when the order is created.

Change the code:

$viewObj->extra_data['analytics_ga'] = '
<input type="hidden" id="hikashop_checkout_analytics_field_ga" name="checkout[analytics][ga]" value=""/>
to:
$value = '';
		$formData = hikaInput::get()->get('checkout', array(), 'array');
		if(!empty($formData) && !empty($formData['analytics']) && !empty($formData['analytics']['ga']))
			$value = $viewObj->escape($formData['analytics']['ga']);

		$viewObj->extra_data['analytics_ga'] = '
<input type="hidden" id="hikashop_checkout_analytics_field_ga" name="checkout[analytics][ga]" value="'.$value.'"/>
in the file plugins/system/hikashopanalytics/hikashopanalytics.php and that will allow the system to retain the data from previous pages where there is no javascript error.
Doing that, you should then have the information stored in order_params in the order and it should then show properly in GA.
Let us know how it goes.

Hi,

Indeed.

I don't see why it would stay blank. As if the modification was not made in the plugin. Could you provide a FTP access via our contact form along with a link to this thread so that we can have a closer look into it ?

Hi,

I found the issue with the way we implemented the previous patch and corrected it. Now, you should have the order_payment_params filled with the GA data. Please try again.

Hi Nicolas

Thanks for that, it now has the following in the params field.

O:8:"stdClass":1:{s:12:"analytics_ga";s:41:"{"uuid":"590914374.1556741110","ul":"en"}";}

I am not sure if this is what you wanted / expected. In Google Analytics it still says "Not / Set" for the source..

Can you advise / help?

Extra extra thanks
Iain

Hello,

It means that the customer tracker had a UUID and its language was English.
But that customer did not come in the website via a campaign.

Hello,

I'm sorry but I don't understand your question.

All I can tell you is that the HikaShop GA plugin is reading various fields from the tracker, including the "Campaign Name".
CF : developers.google.com/analytics/devguide...ference#campaignName

Hi Jerome

My main issue is that the GA isn't tracking where people have come from, Google, A forum, Paid ad campaign etc. I placed that order and went through organic google search however it doesn't then show that when I checkout in the GA.

Hi,

The GA plugin in HikaShop will ask GA about the campaign, source etc and will provide it to GA through the order_payment_params.
Since the campaign/source doesn't appear in the order_payment_params, it means that the GA tracker didn't provide it to the GA plugin.
So you need to make sure that the GA javascript file is properly loaded on all the pages of the website so that it can track the customers from the moment they arrive on the website with the extra GA parameters in the URL until the checkout where the GA plugin in HikaShop will ask the GA tracker the information.

Hello Nicolas

Thanks, I have tried to find any issues with the information coming from Google and I can't. It appears to list all of the visitors information correctly, the only time it doesn't is when the customer makes a purchase and then it is only with where they came from to find my site. It tracks the value, ID etc but just not how they got to my site.

Any thoughts?
Cheers

Hi,

Can you confirm that they have the utm parameters ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UTM_parameters ) in the URL when they arrive on your website ? GA bases itself on these parameters to know where the users come from and then passes them to HikaShop which stores them in the order_payment_params to include them when notifying GA of the order.
