Goals

The module includes goal events when enabled in module configuration.

  • Contact message sent
  • Account registration
  • Cart view
  • Checkout step X

You need to add goal events in your Plausible website configuration:

Goals plausible for Prestashop

The Plausible goal name must be the same as the name in the Prestashop module configuration.

Default goal names are:

  • contact
  • register
  • cart
  • checkout-step-1
  • checkout-step-2
  • checkout-step-3
  • checkout-step-4
  • order

How to add a custom goal?

In any template or JS file, use the plausible method to send the event to Plausible. Example:

<input type="button" value="My Button" id="my-form-button" />

<script type="text/javascript">
    const myButton = document.getElementById('my-form-button');
    if (myButton) {
        myButton.addEventListener('click', function() {
            plausible('my-form-button'); // "my-form-button" is the Plausible goal event name
        });
    }
</script>
