Google “Classic” Analytics
The following instructions walk you through the process of setting up a basic Google Analytics account. Because this version of Google Analytics is being discontinued, we strongly recommend that you install a Google Universal Analytics account instead.

|2.||When you sign up for an account, a report appears that shows your new Google Analytics account number in the following format: UA-XXXXXXX-1. Write this number down, because it is required to complete the configuration for your store.|
|1.||Sign in to your Google Analytics account.|
|2.||On the main menu, select Admin.|

|3.||In the View column, select the View Settings option.|
|4.||In the panel on the left, select Ecommerce Settings. Then, do the following:|

According to Google, anonymizing IP addresses can reduce the accuracy of geographic data in the Analytics report.
