Google Analytics 4 Operating Seamlessly on IRP

IRP Commerce Cloud is now fully integrated with Google Analytics 4
4 min read

Google Analytics 4 is operating seamlessly on the IRP

Google Analytics 4 is fully integrated IRP Commerce Cloud. Universal Analytics is being replaced by Google Analytics 4 and your current Universal Analytics account stops collecting data on the 1st July 2023.

Merchants will have access Universal Analytics data for at least six months but Google does encourage merchants to export the data before it is unavailable.

IRP invest 100K to seamlessly integrate Google Analytics 4  

Google Analytics 4 is a new platform it:

  • Collects website data to better understand the customer journey
  • Uses event-based data instead of session based
  • Connects directly to Google Ads

Google has shared the following article to highlight the differences between the data collected in Universal Analytics and Google Analytics 4

First Party Data is the Only Accurate Data  

Google is an inaccurate tool and can only track approximately 50% of user data. Regulatory factors, GDPR and Apple’s recent iOS consent changes have further undermined Third Party data’s value, accuracy and legality.

Google will always play a part in the online world for Adword Tracking - but First Party data in IRP Trader is the only accurate single source of truth.

IRP Trader utilises first-party data to ensure consistent accuracy when measuring the performance of your ecommerce business. It gives you:

  • Sales, Margins and Profits in Real Time
  • Attribution and Channel Reporting
  • Actionable Intelligence, line item profit, stats and data from all aspects of ecommerce that really matters.
