What we do is that we use the affiliate program of the Business edition:
We create a fake user and activate the affiliate program for him. Then, in google adwords, when we give a link to our website, we add the parameter &partner_id=XX (where XX is the id of the user in HikaShop) so that he is added to the order as affiliate. That way, you can see the affiliate sales of that user in order to know how many sales you made with adwords.

Otherwise, could you give more information on the google adwords code that you want to paste in HikaShop so that we have a better understanding of the situation and see where it could fit.

here is the code (should be place between the body tags):

<!-- Google Code for simply.com Conversion Page -->
<script type="text/javascript">
/* <![CDATA[ */
var google_conversion_id = 1060204968;
var google_conversion_language = "ar";
var google_conversion_format = "3";
var google_conversion_color = "ffffff";
var google_conversion_label = "gjkyCPy3lQIQqOPF-QM";
var google_conversion_value = 0;
if ($this) {
google_conversion_value = $this;
}
/* ]]> */
</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src=" www.googleadservices.com/pagead/conversion.js ">
</script>
<noscript>
<div style="display:inline;">
<img height="1" width="1" style="border-style:none;" alt="" src=" www.googleadservices.com/pagead/conversi...id=ON&script=0"/ >
</div>
</noscript>

It sounds like that should be placed in your template's index.php, file between the body tags, not in HikaShop.

The javascript code you have posted doesn't allow for that.
If you want to track adwords campaigns related to sales, the solution I explained in my first post is possible though.

That is a big pity. Because this data (collected by your solution) won't be shown in campaign management.. Am I right? I would like to track keywords, different versions of ads in google adwords.

It is indeed not shown on google's website.
But the code from google that you provided doesn't allow for that either. Maybe you're not looking at the good code...

Isn't the ecommerce tracking code you should be trying to add to HikaShop ?
code.google.com/intl/en/apis/analytics/d...ackingEcommerce.html
In that case, I recommend you to read on that thread: www.hikashop.com/en/support/forum/4-how-...ctive-url.html#17379

The posted code was copied from campaign management in Adwords. Code, which you mentioned, is for google analytics....

Ok, thank you!

Maybe one solution is a tracking of Paypal payments (because all my payments go thru Paypal). It should be simple:

I think that this problem is common and I hope these discused solutions help to others.

Thank you

The link your provided uses the google analytics ecommerce tracking code I was talking about in my previous posts so apparently I was right guiding you to it.

To be exact: with it you can track their ecommerce code, google analytics and adwords code:) (they are three options there)

Hi Janko216,

I'm not sure why nobody could give you a simple answer to this simple question.

Go to [Joomla install directory]/plugins/hikashoppayment/[Your payment plugin(s)]

In that directory you'll see a file that ends with ...._end.php, this is the receipt page. Simply put the AdWords conversion code in that file.

If you use more than one payment type, you'll need to add the code to all of the plugins that you use.

Ps. Nicolas, I'm sure google know what they're doing with their code ;)

Hi Matt,

Many thanks for your reply on this adwords tracking code question.
I would like to add the Google adwords tracking code to the banktransfer_end.php file.

However, I am not sure where to add this code and if I can add the code at the very bottom of this file or at the top? Any ideas exactly where the code can go in order for the page not to break?

Thanks for your time

Hi,

Google Analytics ecommerce tracking is now available with the Google Analytics plugin included in HikaShop Business.

If you want to code it yourself, that should be done at the end of that file, but it's not just a copy/paste...

Thanks for the reply.

Do you happen to know if there is some code I can simply copy and paste into the banktransfer_end.php file?

No, that would require a developer to do that for you. But I guess it would be cheaper to simply purchase the Business edition in that case...

Id like to measure conversion of signups. This is done by embedding the conversion code from adwords into a "thank you" or "successful registration" page.

With my signup being via the hikashop registration, which auto logs into the checkout page, I do not have a middle page to embed the code.

Is there perhaps a php page that is loaded in between the registration and checkout that while not visible, would be a solution to embed this code into?

Or another way?
