How Do I Set Up Google Enhanced Ecommerce Tracking?

Enhanced Ecommerce Tracking for Google Analytics allows you to dynamically measure user interactions with products on your website shop throughout the user's shopping experience. It includes areas such as; product impressions, product clicks, viewing product details, adding a product to a shopping cart, initiating the checkout process, transactions, and refunds!

This information will be extremely useful in assessing conversions and how to improve your users ordering experience resulting in higher sales.
