WooCommerce AdWords Conversion Tracking

Description

This plugin tracks the value of WooCommerce orders in Google AdWords. With this you can optimize all your AdWords campaigns to achieve maximum efficiency.

Highlights

  • The plugin has been updated with the newest AdWords conversion tracking script that deals with the new Apple cookie tracking prevention. Apple Intelligent Tracking Prevention and New AdWords Conversion Tracking Tag
  • Very precise by preventing duplicate reporting effectively, excluding admins and shop managers from tracking, and not counting failed payments.
  • Very easy to install and maintain.

Requirements

  • The payment gateway must support on-site payments. If you want to use an off-site payment solution like the free PayPal extension you need to make sure that the visitor is being redirected back to the WooCommerce thankyou page after the successful transaction. Only if the redirection is set up properly and the visitor doesn’t stop the redirection, only then the conversion will be counted.
  • As this is a free plugin we only support recent versions of WooCommerce, WordPress and PHP. We don’t maintain backward compatibility.

I get a fatal error and I am running old versions of WordPress and/or WooCommerce. What can I do?

As this is a free plugin we don’t support old version of WordPress and WooCommerce. You will have to update your installation.

I am using an offsite payment gateway and the conversions are not being tracked. What can I do?

We don’t support if an offsite payment gateway is in use. The reason is that those cases can be complex and time consuming to solve. We don’t want to cover this for a free plugin. We do not recommend offsite payment gateways anyway. A visitor can stop the redirection manually which prevents at least some conversions to be tracked. Also offsite payment gateways are generally bad for the conversion rate.

Where can I report a bug or suggest improvements?

Please post your problem in the WGACT Support forum: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/woocommerce-google-adwords-conversion-tracking-tag
You can send the link to the front page of your shop too if you think it would be of help.
