Has anyone been able to make this script work?

http://help.exacttarget.com/en/documentation/collect_code/install_collect_code/track_conversion/

My understanding is it should work with the collect code

http://help.exacttarget.com/en/documentation/collect_code/install_collect_code/

Collect code tracks impressions but conversion tracking DOES NOT WORK for us when pasted on the purchase confirmation page.

  • Can you post your collection code? Including the base collection script for collect.js? Jan 18, 2016 at 17:13
  • Any JS errors in the browser console when the page loads? Jan 18, 2016 at 17:14
  • collect code seems to work fine: <script type="text/javascript" src="7220084.collect.igodigital.com/collect.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript"> _etmc.push(["setOrgId", "7220084"]); _etmc.push(["trackPageView"]); </script>

  • I don't see any JS errors Adam collect code is on the landing page after user goes through sign up and lands on the confirmation page, that's where the 'conversion code' resides that's what doesn't fire

I'm able to get the conversion tracking to work with a simple test I landing page configured:

<h4>test tracking script</h4>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://<!-- MID GOES HERE -->.collect.igodigital.com/collect.js"></script> 
<h4>test tracking pageview</h4>
<script type="text/javascript">
  _etmc.push(["setOrgId", "<!-- MID GOES HERE -->"]);
  _etmc.push(["trackPageView"]);
</script>       
<h4>test conversion script</h4>       
<script type="text/javascript">       
  _etmc.push(["setOrgId", "<!-- MID GOES HERE -->"]);       
  _etmc.push(["trackConversion", { "cart": [
     {"item" : "ITEM1", "quantity":  "1" , "price" : "1.00" , "unique_id" : "ITEM1" } ,
     {"item" : "ITEM2", "quantity":  "1" , "price" : "1.23" , "unique_id" : "ITEM2" }],
  // OPTIONAL PARAMETERS
  "order_number" : "1234567890",
  "discount" : "0.50",
  "shipping" : "2.34",
  "details" : { "AttributeName" : "Value" }
  // END OPTIONAL PARAMETERS       
  }]);      
</script> 

Result

dashboard conversion

  • Could it be that you pasted it on the same page? But in real time situations - would you not put them on a separate pages? Otherwise you'll get as many impressions as conversions.

  • It's up to you where you put the scripts. My point was to illustrate that the conversion tracking script does record data. The collect.js will need to exist on all of the pages that have any tracking code. Jan 18, 2016 at 21:28
  • hmm, could it be that collect.js needs to be together with conversion tracking we'll try and update here thank you Adam

  • That's probably the issue. Jan 19, 2016 at 1:30
  • Anyone figured out how to set the Value column? Right now it seems my price is the sum of all items, but my Value is 0. May 29, 2019 at 20:01
