Posting Transactions to Google Analytics While Using Enquire MAP
Enquire MAP can post Transactions to Google Analytics. Unlike custom events where the user gets Category, Action, Label, and Value, transactions come with more built in parameters to better track an eCommerce or online sale made. Additionally, transactions come with a TransactionID, Affiliation, Revenue, Shipping and Tax.
- Setup the Enquire MAP account
- Authenticate Enquire MAP with Google Analytics
- Have eCommerce tracking setup on Google Analytics
The “Post Google Analytics Transaction” action is available from standard Enquire MAP workflows as well as Form Auto Responders.
The user can set Transaction parameters with static values or dynamically populate fields like revenue and shipping with Enquire MAP fields.

As Google has now restricted what data is given publicly on ad clicks, use ValueTrack parameters to communicate the ad data to Enquire MAP.
As there is no restriction on the labels used when setting up the parameters, Enquire MAP needs to know which labels to use for the parameters in Ads. In the account settings (navigate to Administration > Account Settings) specify the ValueTrack parameter labels used in the Ads Account.
Please Note: Enquire recommends setting up Google Analytics Goals and linking them to Google Adwords.
Please reach out to the dedicated Enquire Account Manager or Enquire MAP Support team for further assistance.
