Fix Google Analytics is a Shopify app that gives you 100% accurate tracking and attribution for your Shopify sales. If you want to uninstall the app, you will no longer get the full Enhanced Ecommerce reporting, but you must take further steps to re-enable the original tracking.

1. In Shopify admin -> Apps -> click the Trash Can next to the app

This means that if you click the trash can, you will no longer receive any transaction information in your Google Analytics account (under Conversions -> Sales Performance), even though the sessions and page views are still working.

 

2. Remove the Littledata script from your page template

(Only relevant if you installed the app after 26th of March 2017)

Click Online Store ->Themes -> Edit HTML/CSS

Remove the page view script

In this new window, under the Layout folder, for each ‘theme’ file you need to find this line of code: “{% include ‘LittledataLayer’ %}” and then delete it. This will stop Littledata sending page views to Google Analytics.

Warning: If you are seeing double counting of pageviews in Google Analytics, or your bounce rate has dropped significantly, then that is a sign you have completed step 3 but not step 2.
