How to Connect Your Shopify Store’s Google Analytics to Blyp
Jonathan Halbrechton August 17, 2022.
So you downloaded Blyp, and now you're ready to conquer the world of data analytics like the top ecommerce dogs.
Before you start enjoying Blyp's insights, I recommend you connect all your Google Analytics accounts.
Why is it so important?
Google Analytics provides a unique view of how your prospects and customers interact with your website. This is information that you can’t really get anywhere else. And when set up properly, it’s a crucial piece of the puzzle that enables you to optimize all aspects of your ecommerce business (traffic channels, store UI, merchandise mix, etc.).
Let's do it together in 5 simple steps:
Step 1: Connect Google Analytics
There are 2 ways to connect your Google Analytics account with Blyp:
Option #1 - Connect Google Analytics after installing Blyp
On the Connect your data step, select the Google Analytics component and click Connect data:
If you went through the onboarding without connecting GA, you can complete it at any time.
Option #2 - Connect Google Analytics from the Blyp app
Once in the app, go to your personal details menu and click Integrations.
Once on the integration page, go to the Google Analytics component and click Connect now:
Step 2: Connect Your Google Account
Click Connect Google Analytics. A permissions window pops up, suggesting enabling Blyp to edit management entities and use GA data.

The more GA permissions Blyp gets, the richer and more concise the insights we can send you.
Important to know: We do not use your store data for anything other than analyzing it. Also, Blyp is a 100% offline app, so our data-crunching won’t affect your site’s speed or performance.
Now, click Connect and move to the next phase.
Select the account to which the correct Google Analytics property is connected.
Now you'll get to this page which asks you whether you allow blyp to edit your Google Analytics management entities and see and download your data:
Click Allow and move to the next step.
Step 3: Select Google Analytics Account
Here you'll find the default Google Analytics account that is associated with your Shopify store listed below:
If it's the right one, simply click Next. If not, choose a different Google Analytics account and click Next.
If the correct Google Analytics account is not listed, an error message will pop up.
Your Google Analytics account might be associated with a different Google account. Simply go back to step 2 and select the correct account.

Step 4: Select the Account Property for our Google Analytics Account
Here you'll find the default property that is associated with your Shopify store listed below:
If this is the right one, simply click Next.
If not, select a different property and click Next. If the correct property account is not listed, an error message will pop up.
You most probably need to select a different Google Analytics account. Simply go back to step 3 and select the right one.

Step 5: Select Property View
A view is simply another layer to look at your data. It enables you to define filters, goals, or any other customization you may need.
In fact, when you connect Blyp to your Google Analytics, a Blyp View is automatically created. This view is configured to help run your store analysis.
Click Select view, choose the right view in the drop-down below, and click Next:
If the correct property view is not listed, an error message will pop up.
You most probably need to select a different property. Simply go back to step 4 and select the right one.

And that's it! You're done.
