Please do not update either of these two scripts, unless you know exactly what you are doing. In particular, edits to
fueled-vars could break your client-side Fueled integration.
Within Fueled’s GA4 Connector App settings, you can enable/disable client-side tracking:
When client-side tracking is disabled, our application’s scripts still fire, such that you can access our data layer. But our application will not send these events to Google Analytics.
Respecting User Tracking Consent
By default, our GA4 Connector App respects the customer privacy/tracking consent features provided by BigCommerce’s Scripts Manager. We recommend that you leave these settings activated, to respect your customers’ consent when it comes to client-side event tracking.
Enabling Server-Side Tracking
Enable/disable server-side tracking to track checkout and purchase events with Fueled. By default, our app tracks server-side events.

Configuring the Purchase Value Sent to Google Analytics
Google recommends that purchase events use the “subtotal” value of an order as the
value parameter. However, some merchants have historically used, or would prefer to use, the “total order value” (which includes taxes and shipping). We leave this choice up to you!
Entering Your Google Analytics 4 Credentials
You will need to enter your Measurement ID and API Key for GA4 to send Google attribution events. Please review our documentation on configuring a GA4 property here.
Pausing Attribution Events
For the most part, once a merchant has configured our app, they will never need to adjust their settings or temporarily pause events. That said, if you’re setting up a new development store or are staging the Fueled app for a new store, you can use the settings below to turn off event tracking, while keeping the Fueled app installed and configured for your storefront.
While Fueled has provided this app to Shopify merchants for free, we do our best to support the wonderful merchants who choose to leverage our software.
