How To: Set up the Google Analytics add-on


Google stopped supporting Universal Analytics in 2023. To use Google Analytics, upgrade to at least version 4.12.2 where the the support of Google Analytics 4 was added.

The Google Analytics add-on is created in order to allow the administrator to see the statistics for CS-Cart on his Google account. This add-on is based on Universal Analytics.

To set up the Google Analytics add-on:

  • In the Administration panel, go to Add-ons → Manage add-ons and enable the Google Analytics add-on (change its status to Active in the select box on the right).
  • Click on the name of the add-on.
  • Enter the Universal Analytics account number into the Google Analytics account number field.


The Universal Analytics account number is the value of the _uacct variable in the Google Analytics Tracking Code. For example, if you see _uacct= “UA-1111111-1” you should put UA-1111111-1 in the Google Analytics account number field.

  • If you would like to track your CS-Cart orders, enable the Track e-commerce transactions option. Then you should select Yes in the E-commerce website option on the profile page of your site in your Universal Analytics account. You will be able to view reports under the E-commerce section of your Universal Analytics account.
  • Click the Save button.


In order to get the Universal Analytics account number you should create your own account on the Google Analytics site. After that you will be able to obtain this number there.
