Use Google Analytics to collect data from your website, your ShowClix event listings, and any online marketing initiatives.

To set up your Google Analytics integration with ShowClix, please follow the instructions below:

Step 1
Create a new Google Analytics account if you do not have one:

Step 2
Use the below cross-domain tracking code on your site and your ShowClix event listings. The cross domain code will connect your site’s activity to your ShowClix event listing’s activity so you can see a user’s entire path to the ticket sale. Please note, if you already have the standard Google Analytics code on your site, you will need to replace it with the cross-domain code.

  • Please replace the bolded section below with your Google Analytics UA Tracking ID found in your Google Analytics account:
    • Log in to Google Analytics > Admin > Property Settings
    • Your Tracking ID will be displayed under Basic Settings
  • Once you have the final cross-domain code, you will implement it on all pages of your site.

<script>

(function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){ (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o), m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m) })(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');

ga('create', 'UA-65478394-1', 'auto', {'allowLinker': true});
ga('require', 'linker');
ga('linker:autoLink', ['showclix.com'] );
ga('send', 'pageview');

</script>

Step 3
Once you have placed the code on all pages of your site, you will also need to put it on your ShowClix event listings:

  • Log in to ShowClix Admin > Marketing > Marketing Accounts > Google Analytics
  • Enter Google Analytics Tracking ID
  • Select "Save"

Step 4
Create a Google Analytics Goal to track ticket sales:

  • Choose “Buy Tickets” under Revenue

  • Enter the following in the field presented: /receipt.* (Please enter exactly as it's written here)
  • Select "Save"
  • Do not turn on "Value" or "Funnel"

Step 5
Turn on Ecommerce reporting to collect ticket revenue data in your Google Analytics account:

  • Log in to Google Analytics
  • Select "Admin"
  • In the View column, select “Ecommerce Settings”
  • Click the Enable Ecommerce toggle ON
  • Select "Admin"
  • Select "Submit"

Step 6
Remove four website referrals, showclix.com, www.showclix.com, and your two website URL versions (ex. www.winefestival.com and winefestival.com) as referral traffic sources to properly track where website traffic is coming from:

  • Login to Google Analytics > Admin
  • In the Property column, select “Tracking Info”
  • Select “Referral Exclusion List”
  • Click the “+Add Referral Exclusion”
  • Enter "showclix.com"
  • Select "Create"
  • Again select “+Add Referral Exclusion”
  • Enter "www.showclix.com"
  • Select "Create"
  • Again select “+Add Referral Exclusion”
  • Enter your website URL
  • Select "Create"
  • Again click the “+Add Referral Exclusion”
  • Enter your www.website URL

Step 7 (Optional)
UTM parameters are a simple tracking code that you can attach to every URL used for online marketing initiatives in order to track a source, medium, and campaign name. It enables Google Analytics to report on your specific marketing campaigns.
