If you are selling digital via internet i.e. eBook etc, would you need to set a goal in analytics (and is it free) ?
Is it a necessity in order to sell eBooks?
Is this where you put your thankyou page.html or is it already done if you use a third party such as clickbank etc.
Can anyone give me some advice how to fill in the necessary goal, funnel forms.

I really need this advice as I'm slightly confused.

Hi Magaret,

I'm not sure what you mean by 'set a goal in analytics'

Hi Margaret,

If you are selling a digital product that people will have to pay for and then download, the PayPal widget won't work for this. Can you just confirm for me what you set up so far; are you using the PayPal widget for your Ebook?

Here is a link to a thread where Ruth has explained another option for downloadable products called payloadz: How to sell digital products.

The best way to learn about setting up funnels and goals in Google Analytics would be to look at this page in their help section: Setting up Funnels and Goals.

I hope this helps, let us know if you have any further questions.

Hi Margaret,

I'm not sure what you mean? You can set-up Google Analytics to track your transactions to see how many items you have sold and more, if this is what you want. Can you rephrase?
