Exactly this is correct.

Any joy on this one Matvey?
Thank you for the details.

Basing on your needs, I think the following integration will fit:
1. Since you want to put your whole store on a partner site, you will need to follow the instruction from the point #4 fomr this article:
http://kb.ecwid.com/w/page/52731315/...ffiliate%20Pro

Here it goes:

Quote:
1) Find an affiliate ID in the affiliates list in your merchant panel (see the 'Affiliate manager' window):
Let's say the affiliate ID is 'aff1' (you should find the exact ID in your PAP backend)

Quote:
2) Specify it in the clicks tracking code. The code will look like this (the changed part is in bold):
I put it into your tracking code here:

Code:
<script type="text/javascript"><!--
document.write(unescape("%3Cscript id='pap_x2s6df8d' src='" + (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://" : "http://") + 
"anabolic-designs.postaffiliatepro.com/scripts/trackjs.js' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));//-->
</script>
<script type="text/javascript"><!--
PostAffTracker.setAccountId('default1');
var AffiliateID = 'aff1';
try {
PostAffTracker.track();
} catch (err) { }
//-->
</script>
Done - it's the tracking code.


Quote:
3) Grab Ecwid integration code from your Ecwid control panel and add the modified clicks tracking code, combine them together. The code is ready, you can give it to your affiliate.
So, as this step says, let's add the tracking code snippet to your store integration code. The result:
Code:
<div>
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://app.ecwid.com/script.js?1575325" charset="utf-8"></script>
<script type="text/javascript"> xProductBrowser("categoriesPerRow=3","views=grid(3 ,3) list(10) table(20)","categoryView=grid","searchView=list"," style="); </script>
<noscript>Your browser does not support JavaScript. Please proceed to <a href="https://anabolic-designs.ecwid.com">HTML version of Anabolic Designs™ | Perform and Transform</a></noscript>
</div>

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
document.write(unescape("%3Cscript id='pap_x2s6df8d' src='" + (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://" : "http://") + 
"anabolic-designs.postaffiliatepro.com/scripts/trackjs.js' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));//-->
</script>
<script type="text/javascript"><!--
PostAffTracker.setAccountId('default1');
var AffiliateID = 'aff1';
try {
PostAffTracker.track();
} catch (err) { }
//-->
</script>
That's it - the code above contains the both your store widgets and the affiliate tracking code so you can put it anywhere: in any site or blog as well as in Ecwid FB app - it will work.



Next, you want to track sales coming from that storefront. Here, you will need to follow the instructions from the point #5 of the abovementioned article:
Quote:
5. Add sales tracking code into your Ecwid store.
Regardless of where the clicks tracking code is placed, you'll need to integrate the sales tracking code into your "Thank you for your order" page in Ecwid. After being placed in your control panel, this code will track sales for all of your affiliates.
As far as I can see, you got the sales tracking code:
Code:
<script id="pap_x2s6df8d" src="https://anabolic-designs.postaffiliatepro.com/scripts/salejs.php" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
PostAffTracker.setAccountId('default1');

var sale = PostAffTracker.createSale();
sale.setTotalCost("%order_total%");
sale.setOrderID("%order_id%");

PostAffTracker.register();
</script>
So, all you need to do is to put that code into your Ecwid control panel (System Settings → General → Cart → Checkout Settings → Tracking code on "Thank you for your order" page). That's it.



Notes:
1) As I mentioned above, the sales tracking approach uses the "Tracking code on Thank you for your order page" feature. That feature basically works this way: when the order confirmation page opens, the javascript code you placed there executes. So, for the sales tracking code working it is crucial that the last checkout page ('Thank you page') is reached. It always happens when an offline payment is used (e.g. 'Phone ordering'). As to online payment methods like PayPal, sometimes the page may not be reached. In particular, when a merchant uses the 'Custom tab content' approach on Facebook, the orders placed via PayPal will not be tracked because of the limitation our FB app currently has: if a customer returns to the custom tab from PayPal, they don't reach the confirmation page - rather do they open the main store page. The clicks tracking code, however, will work fine.

The good news is we're currently working on some changes in our FB app that should fix that limitation. They will be released in one of the upcoming Ecwid versions.

2) In order to track from what page an order comes (in addition to the PAP tracking or instead of it), you can also use this approach:
http://kb.ecwid.com/w/page/52602187/...%20came%20from
This way, you will be able to find out the sale source even if PAP tracking doesn't execute on the thank you for your order page.

Hi, thanks, I do appreciate the responses.

I've diligently input this code (which I believed I had already tried this permutation, as well previously following that article) and PAP is tracking nothing from this. no clicks, no sales conversions...

I can send you backend login for both Ecwid and PAP so you can see, the details / code are exactly as explained in the articles and in your post...still nothing.

Yes, please, send me it. You can do it via private messages.

Good news! It turns out it all works perfectly. There was a server/hosting issue with PAP today delaying updates. I just logged in and there was the payment, and a chap from PAP replied as there had been issues with changing the password earlier. No matter how many times it was updated it still wouldn't accept the new password. Turns out it was there side today, so your code is perfect.

You superstar. And total dedication has been exceptional.

Lightbulb Affiliation Code Embedding on Facebook

Good day. We use Post Affiliate Pro and it has worked great with adding affiliates to our store utilizing their won websites. My question is, is there a way to embed affiliate codes in to Facebook pages in order to allow affiliates to just use their Facebook page for a store. Oh Makfrut were are you :-)

There seems to be some difference in setup since this thread was started and last updated. OR, my paltry understanding of the subject matter has led me to this impasse. Likely ;-)

Following the information here: http://help.ecwid.com/customer/porta...-affiliate-pro, I have procured PAP, placed the click tracking code in the Facebook "Custom HTML coed (advanced)" section, entered Sale Tracking code into Ecwid Cart for "Thank you for your order" page and activated the Ecwid plugin in PAP merchant panel.

It seems that i've missed an important step, because i haven't entered the Affiliate ID anywhere. HELP!


UPDATE: Now, i have placed the Affiliate ID variable as here:
2) Specify it in the clicks tracking code. The code will look like this (the changed part is in bold):


<script type="text/javascript"><!--
document.write(unescape("%3Cscript id='pap_x2s6df8d' src='" + (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://" : "http://") +
"XXXX.postaffiliatepro.com/scripts/trackjs.js' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));//-->
</script>
<script type="text/javascript"><!--
PostAffTracker.setAccountId('default1');
var AffiliateID = 'here goes the ID';
try {
PostAffTracker.track();
} catch (err) { }
//-->
</script>

Still no joy.

Thanks, in advance.

Hello,

Thanks a lot for reaching out!

Can you please post here a link to your Facebook page so that I could inspect it?

Also, can I place a test order in your store in order to see if the tracking code works on the "Thank you for your order" page?

I look forward to hearing from you.
