Google Tag Manager & Bold Cashier Integration

Overview

Google Tag Manager is a tool that allows you to use tracking scripts and gather analytics on your website without having to modify the site's code.

Bold Cashier allows you to use Google Tag Manager to expand on your analytics for your checkout process. You're about to track your customer's journey through your site to ensure their checkouts are completed.

In order to complete this integration, you will need to have a Google Tag Manager account to deploy your tags to Cashier.

Cashier also has a direct integration with Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel. If you use either of these already, and have the tracking tag in your Google Tag Manager Container, you may be seeing your checkout events being tracked twice. If you have Google Tag Manager enabled, we suggest that you use it for all your analytics tracking.
