Using Google Tag Manager (GTM) Extension


Sellers need to track e-commerce activities that customers perform on the websites. Google Analytics, Facebook Pixel, and Google Ads are among the tools that help you monitor the performance of your online business. However, your website cannot readily interact with these tools; therefore, you may use Google Tag Manager (GTM), a facilitator between your website and the marketing analytics tools.

Steps to use Google Tag Manager Extension

  1. Go to Google Tag Manager.

  2. Sign in with your Google account.

  3. Click Create Account.

  5. Select your country.
