Google Analytics 4 API Secret ↑ Back to top

NOTE

Setting the GA4 API secret will enable the measurement protocol for GA4.

INFO

The GA4 Measurement protocol is still in beta. It works quite well, but it might have a few quirks here and there.

1. Open the admin interface for the GA4 property.

2. Open the website data stream.

3. Open the API secret setup menu.

4. Start creating a new API secret.

5. Give the new API secret a name. Use the plugin name. It will help you to associate which API key is being used by which app.

6. Copy the new API secret.

7. Paste the new API secret in the plugin and save it. You’ll find the API secret setting under Advanced > Google in the plugin.

2. Configure the funnel steps and save them. For step 1 set checkout started. For step 2 set billing email added. For step 3 set payment provider chosen. And for step 4 set order placed.
