ShareASale Merchant Guide (4): How To Install Tracking Code

After finishing the previous step, this step is to install the tracking code. This code is invisible. With the tracking code, you/Shareasale can know which affiliate has sold your product, how much has been sold, what channel, and so on.

The combination of cookies and tracking pixels completes ShareASale’s tracking works. The consumer’s device (processed by ShareASale) stores cookies, and the tracking pixel is a piece of code on your shopping cart confirmation page, also known as the “thank you” page.

By default, the tracking pixel lets ShareASale know the OrderID, OrderSubtotal, and Transaction Type. From there, ShareASale will be able to piece together the whole story, letting you know which affiliate sent what sale, how much, when, etc.
