PageFly provides 6 key metrics to analyze page’s performance as the demonstration below:

  • Add-to-cart rate: The percentage of sessions where a product is added to cart.
  • Sessions: The total number of sessions on a page.
  • Visitors: The total number of unique visitors to a page.
  • Product view rate: The number of times a specific product is viewed by visitors within a specified period.
  • Sales: Total gross sales generated by a page. This number is calculated based on the product price from complete orders.
  • Conversion rate: The percentage of sessions where visitors click on a trackable element from the page.

2.1. How to add a tracking ID in the page editor?Click to copy

In the page editor, you can add a tracking ID for any elements. Each element should be given a different ID so PageFly can separately show the tracked data of that element.

You can set the tracking ID for PageFly Event in the editor by clicking on one element > go to the General tab > scroll down to Tracking > type any tracking ID that is good for you > Save and Publish.

On the Analytics page, it will show the percentage of conversion for that element in the name of the ID you have set before.

This percentage of conversion rate here is the average number of clicks over the number of visitors on the page.

3. TroubleshootingClick to copy

3.1. Why can’t I connect PageFly with Google Analytics? 

If you see an error message when connecting to GA4, it means that the email address you are using does not have permission to create custom definitions in GA4. When you log in to GA4 from PageFly Analytics, PageFly will automatically create some custom dimensions and metrics on GA4. Dimensions are for page names, page types, etc., and metrics are for tracking add-to-carts, conversion rates, visitors, revenue, and sessions. To create these, your account must have permission to edit and create new custom definitions in the property.

If your account does not have this permission, please contact your GA4 administrators to request that they grant you this permission.

3.2. How can I tell if my account has permission?

To check if your account has permission to create custom definitions, go to GA4 > Admin > Custom Definitions. If you don’t see the Create Custom Dimensions button, as shown in the screenshot below, your account doesn’t have the permission:

3.3. Why do I see Message?

Why do I see the message “The User Data Collection Acknowledgement must be attested on this property” when logging in to Google Analytics 4 in PageFly?

If you see this message when logging in to Google Analytics 4 in PageFly, it means that you have not yet acknowledged the Google Analytics 4 User Data Collection Terms. To acknowledge these terms, you will need to click on the Review terms button and select the I acknowledge option.

How do I fix this?

To fix this, please follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Review terms button.
