Google Analytics & Google Ads plugins DO NOT WORK when using a Custom Receipt URL since the URL to your website does not contain the integrated Google Analytics code of the Checkfront integration.
If you wish to notify a remote server of a new booking or update its status, consider using API notifications instead of a tracking solution.
About E-Commerce Tracking with Google AnalyticsBack to top
If you use Google Analytics on your website to track visitors, then you can use Checkfront's Google Analytics add-on to gain better insight into your E-commerce Tracking statistics.
E-commerce Tracking reports allow you to analyze your site's or app's purchase activity. You can see product and transaction information, average order value, e-commerce conversion rate, time to purchase, and other data.
Our integration applies your Google Analytics code to your Customer-facing pages (reserve/booking page, booking form, payment page, invoice page, and documents/waivers page) so that you can analyze the data within Google Analytics.
This series of articles covers setup in Google Analytics, setup in Checkfront, and the option for Cross-domain Tracking.
