Connecting Google Analytics to your referral program pages is extremely easy. Sign up for a Google Analytics account if you haven't yet.
Step 1: Create a separate Google Analytics Property
We highly recommend creating a different Google Analytics Property from the one you're already using for your eCommerce store. This will help you distinguish between the sessions on ReferralCandy and those on your store.
Log in to your Google Analytics account and click Create Property.
Fill out the necessary fields and choose a platform. You will be asked to set up data stream. Input your ReferralCandy Portal URL as the Website URL. You can find this URL at the top of your campaign's Email & Pages section:
Add a stream name and click Create Stream. Your Web stream details will pop up. Copy the Measurement ID provided (this is also called a Google tag ID). Complete your setup.
If you already have an existing Google Analytics property, please refer to this article to learn how you can find your Google tag ID.
Step 2: Add your Google tag ID to ReferralCandy pages
Return to the ReferralCandy Dashboard, go to Integrations and click Marketing Analytics. Paste your Google tag ID in the Google Analytics ID field. Click Save Changes.
That's it! Pageviews to your referral program may take up to 24 hours to appear on your GA dashboard.
