Google Analytics Issue

Recommended Posts


Please allow me to preface by saying: I have read & understand ALL documentation presented by Squarespace regarding how to implement Google Analytics and the potential discrepancies one might encounter. I have no problem implementing universal Analytics tracking code or Google Tag Manager - I have tried both - both fail at what I am trying to accomplish. That is, reliably parsing eComm sales metrics to Google Analytics. I have yet to find a way to accomplish this simple mission.

Currently, I have reverted back to simple GA tracking code in the provided location. On any given day, for example, our store will have 6 sales, yet only 2-3 are pushed to Google Analytics as an eComm goal - sometimes none. 

As a work-around, I created two Goals in Google Analytics, based upon two distinct url paths related to the order confirmation process, those being:

  • /checkout/subscription-confirmed/
  • /checkout/order-confirmed/

Doing so, I was able to capture most of the sales - still not all. So, now I am wondering if there is yet another url path I am not aware of?

We desperately need import sales having source/medium =  CPC to our Adwords campaign in order to gauge performance.

Squarespace support keeps pointing me to articles on the site - which are not helpful.

Using Tag Assistant and recordings, I was able to determine that Squarespace is using two different tracking libraries for Analytics, for example, universal and gtag. I think this is the culprit, but how does one convince their devs to have a look at it?

Has anyone been able to successfully capture ALL sales in Google Analytics? If so, can you please share how you managed to accomplish this task?

Hi there,

Unfortunately, I am just a beginner here, so I am not able to offer suggestions.


I am however, having problems tracking any of my Squarespace sales through my Google Tag manager. Can you tell me more about how you were able to successfully set it up? My tag isn't firing and I'm not sure what is the problem.


Would really appreciate some help!
