I have added my various pipeline URLs as the steps to a checkout goal (G1) in Google Analytics. Even though I have had several good checkouts I see nothing ever being reported as reaching G1.

G1 : http://www.url.com/cart.php?mode=order_message
Step 1: http://www.url.com/product.php
Step 2: http://www.url.com/cart.php?mode=checkout
Step 3: http://www.url.com/cart.php?paymentid=1&mode=checkout

I know the URLs are is xcart specific. But do I have the right idea here?

(Note: This is different than a conversion over in Adwords. We are talking Analytics here.)
