Do you have any questions? Leave them in the comments and we will do our best to reply! Also, don’t forget to check the FAQ below.

❓ Why use Google Tag Manager to set up GA4 on Shopify?
It is simply the most accurate method. You can also use GTM containers, data layers, and triggers for other tags, such as Google Ads Conversion Tracking.

❓I have done the setup using Analyzify’s GA4 Wizard. What should I do now?
Follow this video tutorial and it will guide you. The 2022 edition setup includes GA4’s e-commerce reports, including product-level data. So you should remove the old setup and use this one instead.

❓Does Shopify support GA4? How can I set up GA4 on Shopify?
Shopify doesn’t have a native integration with Google Analytics 4 at the moment. You can use the Shopify GA4 Kit as explained in the video or purchase an app like Analyzify :)!

❓What is the Shopify GA4 Kit?
It is a free & open-source toolset the Analyzify team has created for the Shopify ecosystem. It includes everything you need for a proper setup. It also covers the Shopify data layers, a pre-built GTM container, and tutorials.

❓What will happen to my Universal Analytics set up on Shopify?
Your existing setup won’t be affected by this setup. You should keep it as it is, and you can keep using it until it is shut down.

❓I am an Analyzify client. What should I do?
Nothing 🙂 Analyzify includes the complete setup and you don’t need anything else. Just make sure you have your Analyzify setup completed, verified, and up & running.

❓I have other tags on my GTM. How can I use the Shopify GA4 Kit?
We elaborate further on this issue, so please follow the tutorial carefully. You will only need to stop your existing GA4 tags.

❓ Why is Google Analytics better than Shopify Analytics?
Shopify’s native reports will not be enough for you to run and optimize professional marketing campaigns as Shopify provides you only with a simple report interface covering the most basic data.
