    I have been trying to set up google ads to track conversion properly so that I can actually run ads.

    I have gotten google analytics to track properly on my shopify site, but google ads isn’t connecting properly.

    I finally got it to register a ‘upload payment info’ conversion event, but there is still an old conversion tracker event that I can’t delete because it is used at the campaign level.

    Also, when I tried to make a smart shopping campaign, I got a message saying it is eligible but misconfigured. I talked to a google rep who told me that I just need to wait for the audience to fill up and it will go away.

    But Another rep told me that the conversion tracking isn’t set up properly even though it tracked a conversion. They also said that my audience has to be set up, but when I tried to set it up for website visitors on a webpage that equals the url of my homepage it showed no visitors which is strange because I have had far more than 0 visitors in the last 30 days.

    Does anyone know what I should do?

    I just want to make google ads, but I just can’t get them set up.

    Try importing you Google Analytics goal to your Google Ads account as a conversion. Save the hassle of trying to figure out what is correctly/incorrectly configured with your Google Ads tracking. Boom, easy!

    If you’re spending $1k/mo or more my team could make all your headaches go away and get you a better ROI. From your post it looks like you are making many mistakes like using too much automation, campaign types that won’t produce the best results and other mistakes.

    Want to do it yourself? These three items could help.
    1. Create a standard shopping campaign
    2. Enable enhanced Ecom in google analytics and use that as your conversion point
    3. Use customs labels to segment your products

    My team does that and a lot more for our clients. Good luck whichever route you choose to go.
