Gathered data is supplied through the Google Tag Manager service to Google Enhanced Ecommerce analytics to get hints on how to increase marketing ROI and boost sales.

Configuration Settings

The module Google Tag Manager for Magento 2 requires a prior configuration before it is fully ready to use.

Navigate to Store > Settings > Configuration > Mirasvit Extensions > Google Tag Manager to open the module's settings.

Setup Google Tag Manager

In order to connect your Magento 2 store to the Google Tag Manager service using our extension, it is required that you create an account on the Google Tag Manager (GTM) service. GTM service is used for data collection, and to analyze it with Enhanced Ecommerce reports, a Google Analytics account is required.

To connect your store with the GTM service, activate the Google Tag Manager extension and copy-paste GTM JavaScript snippets into the script and noscript fields.

Replace GTM-XXXX with your GTM account ID.

Setup Google Universal Analytics or Google Analytics 4

The extension automatically passes all page views and e-commerce events to Google Tag Manager and then GTM passes all events to your Google Analytics.

To achieve this, you need to add one Google Universal Analytics configuration tag and one Google Analytics 4 configuration tag to Google Tag Manager:
