We're almost there, save the trigger and save the tag.

3. Publish and check that the tag works correctly

-Click on Submit to publish.

  • Now navigate to the checkout of your site: in this way you can check if your "visit" in the checkout is communicated to Analytics and therefore the Tag has been activated correctly.
  • To check that the tag is working correctly, go to Google Analytics:

Conversions > Ecommerce > Checkout Behavior

You should be able to view the sessions ( the blue columns) under each Checkout Label as shown in the screenshot below:
