Enhanced Conversions Tracking on Magento

What are enhanced conversions? And how to set up enhanced conversion tracking using our GTM extension step by step.

A few words about enhanced conversions

Enhanced conversion is a feature that can improve the accuracy of your conversion measurement and unlock more powerful bidding. It supplements your existing conversion tags by sending hashed first-party conversion data from your website to Google in a privacy-safe way. This feature allows you to retrieve advanced customer data such as email address, phone number,  first name, last name, home address, city, region, country, and postal code. This data can be captured in your conversion tracking tags, hashed, sent to Google in its hashed form, and then used to enhance your conversion measurement.

Finally, this feature will allow you to run marketing campaigns more effectively and get more money.

Here’s the biggest benefit that you’ll get from using Google Ads enhanced conversions:

  • There’s less ambiguity about which actions are driving results, giving you more concrete data. That’s an enormous advantage.
  • Better data quality, that allows both you and Google to improve and optimize your campaigns.
  • The ability to better track how specific Ads events are driving conversions.

Additional benefits:

  • Give you a better understanding of your customer journeys
  • Make your conversion data more accurate across your indpaigns so you know what’s really working
  • Give you more data that you can use for retargeting campaigns
