Adding Google Analytics Tracking

Hi, I'm familiar with adding Google's standard Analytics tracking code to a website, and I assume here it's just a case of copying the code to the main.dwt template and uploading the
updated files to the server. But will this track the pages like the cart, checkout and confirmation? I've read briefly about Google's ecommerce analytics but don't really understand how to implement it

Can you help me in adding this to my site

Thanks
Neil

The pages in the PowerStore are just standard php type of pages, so the process for adding the code to these pages is no different than if you added it to your own php pages. If you want it added in an area like the head or footer you should do so in the main template file and make sure that you select to update the pages derived from the template when prompted.

With Power Store 4, it has a section for the analytics code. Do I just copy and paste what google gives me, with the <script> tags and all?

Ok thank you, that is what I did but google still says code has not be entered. I'll give it a while to search the site.

EDIT: That did it. It is working.

Will it track how many times each product is viewed?
I have a customer who wants reports on how many time each product has been viewed. Zencart does this in its report section but it is so bloated I hate using it.

Yes, google analytics is very powerful in what it tracks. It tracks it by url, so if it says product ID=17, you can just find that product in your admin area.

Check out this screen shot for a site I just setup:
