Ok, so here's the situation. The main marketing site is WordPress setup on the main www domain, so I have the main Google Analytics profile setup for this. But, our client portal that processes orders, is setup on a sub-domain (portal.domain.com). To setup ecommerce tracking in Google Analytics, should I setup a new profile under the main domain profile, and use the new UA number to track ecommerce - OR - should we enable ecommerce for the main profile? Would appreciate your input.
always save the original profile as a backup.
that said, this is an easy problem to solve. you just need to use this line of code above the "trackpageview" line....

Hi, you should use one property with the same UA number on both www and subdomain pages. Enable ecommerce tracking from the profile settings.
Here's the best article on subdomain tracking I've found so far:
