About Google AnalyticsBack to top
"Google Analytics is a platform that collects data from your websites and apps to create reports that provide insights into your business." ~ Analytics Help
You can use Google Analytics to...
- Track Customers to gain insights into their booking journey by tracking their path to book your products
- Track the success of your marketing campaigns (e.g., newsletters, Google Ads)
You can then use this information to optimize your workflow, attract new customers, increase sales, and spread the word about your business.

Integration OverviewBack to top
Our integration applies your Google Analytics tracking code (Google tags) to your Customer-facing pages in Checkfront. Whether you use our embedded Booking Widget or the Hosted Customer Booking pages, you can analyze your visitor data within Google Analytics.
Our integration supports cross-domain tracking, allowing you to accurately attribute activity to a single visitor as they seamlessly cross domains. Visitors are tracked from your website to Checkfront as a single session.
What is cross-domain tracking?
Cross-domain tracking enables two or more related sites on separate domains to be measured as one.
Google tags, unique codes placed on web pages, provide a common way to measure activity when your Customer journeys span multiple domains, e.g. from your website to Checkfront's Booking Widget or booking pages.
Cross-domain tracking is also referred to as cross-domain conversion measurement.
How do I set up conversion events?
To build more advanced tracking, you can set up a custom external web page and point to it with our Custom Receipt URL option at Manage > Ecommerce Setup > Settings.
Note that Google Analytics & Google Ads plugins DO NOT WORK when using a Custom Receipt URL as the URL to your website does not contain the integrated Google Analytics code of the Checkfront integration.
To resolve this issue, you need to create a custom conversion event within your Google Analytics account with keywords from your Custom URL.
