Re: [webanalytics] Re: GA and PayPal integration
- Hi Omar,
Thanks! That is a good idea. The number of visits with the _trackEvent()
method, validated by the number of visits to the "Thank you" page. The
real number of sales should be included between the two figures.
I just found another script, I will try to customize it before
I was assuming that since GA and PayPal are very widespread it would
have been easy to find a ready made solution. But as people say:
assumption is the mother of all disasters.
Thanks again to everyone
