Off Site Conversion

Off Site Conversion

I have an ecommerce site that is separate from my membership site. So for example - customers buy a product from me on store.example.com. And then upon successful purchase, they get redirected automatically to www.example.com/membership. 

 

So I don't have an order_placed or order_confirmation page that users are taken to where I can post the Optimizely tracking script. 

 

If I did somehow place the Optimizely tracking script on www.example.com/membership, I wouldn't be able to get the conversion value. Like I could try to pass the conversion value as a parameter in the POST URL. But I don't have code access to www.example.com/membership because that code is encrypted. So I can't ingest the value of what's being passed over to it. 

 

Any thoughts on how to solve this?

Re: Off Site Conversion

In this example, /membership is the order confirmation page?

 

If you are able to place the snippet on the /membership pageso that it appears like:

/membership?order=true

(or some other URL param value)

 

You can set up a goal that looks for the /membership URL with the presence of your URL parameter.

 

If you are not able to add your snippet to /membership or are not able to append a URL parameter, would it be sufficient to track when a user clicks the "Submit Order" button as the goal?
