How to link your Google Merchant Center to Google Analytics 4

Google lets you link your Google Merchant Center account with your Google Analytics 4 (GA4) property.

You are now able to link Google Merchant Center to Google Analytics 4. Additionally, Advertisers will now be able to see conversions from free product listings by connecting your Merchant Center and GA4 property.

Free Listing Analytics

A benefit of linking the GA4 to Google Merchant Centre is that you can see analytics on free listing products. Rich insights such as user behavior, pages visited, actions taken, and sales data from the free listings will now be visible. In addition, you can now make comparisons between traffic and free listing for individual products. Given GA4's new features and capabilities, valuable insights can be pulled down to individual products.

Before your start

Before going setting up GA4, You need to have the following;

  • Admin Access – to be able to enable the GA4 linking to GMC, you must have admin access
  • Auto Tagging Enabled – Auto-tagging must be enabled to track conversion data in GA4. Auto-tagging is a feature that allows you to use third-party tracking tools like Google Analytics to track conversions for your free product listings. For the Merchant Center, currently, you only track conversion data of listings on Google Shopping.

How To Enable Auto Tagging

  1. Log in to your Merchant Center account
  2. Navigate to “Settings” and click on “Conversion settings.”
  3. Click the Enable the auto-tagging switch
