Ability to embed Google Adwords Code to track advertising effectiveness

Google AdWords has a great function that allows you to set up a variety of codes that track "actions".

I am trying to use AdWords to get people to sign up for our annual conference and to join the organization. Both actions require a credit card transaction to be considered a "success".

I understand that I cannot put google code on the shopping cart -- (because WA controls those pages) but I must have some means of tracking the effectiveness of our advertising dollars.

Can you please add a page that I can use that appears right after the point of purchase? Something where we can say "thank you" and put that code right on the page?

Many thanks!!!

        This is pretty important, I can't believe people haven't voted this up. Not being able to track registrations or sales in GA is a pretty bad oversite on WA's part.

        A bit of a work around. I know that when people pay for a new membership it eventually sends them to an invoice page. Mine is this

        https://kdreport.wildapricot.org/Sys/FinDocument

        followed by a "/random_numbers_here" You can set a goal in Google Analytics to trigger off of "Begins with"

        So that the goal tracks all visits to this page and any other pages in the Fin Document folder.

        So all these pages would trigger the goal

        https://kdreport.wildapricot.org/Sys/FinDocument/238470832
        https://kdreport.wildapricot.org/Sys/FinDocument/8798427394
        https://kdreport.wildapricot.org/Sys/FinDocument/0889723

        Etc.

        If they revisit the page, it will trigger another sale but this is better than nothing.

        Being able to track the conversion when spending money on ads it definitely a must have. Please move that request to the top of your list for future developments.

        Google tracking code needs to be inserted in the sale confirmation page, there is currently no such page.

        Thank you.

        Hi Chief,

        Google AdWords has a great function that allows you to set up a variety of codes that track "actions".

        We are using AdWords to get people to sign up for our membership and we really want to track how many members are from AdWords so that we can control our ROI.

        We must have some means of tracking the effectiveness of our advertising dollars.

        Is it possible to add a page that we can use AdWords tracking code right after the point of purchase? Something where we can say "thank you" and put that code right on the page?

        Can you put this requst on the Roadmap?

        Thanks.

        We are greatly interested in this as well. Actually, we want anything that can help us track new signups, new paying customers, etc.

        This type of conversion tracking is critical for anyone trying to learn what is working on thier site.

        It will be a great feature to be able to track Google Adwords.

        We vote for this!
