Can we add a piece of code on Wizzley to see what our visitors are buying? Here's from the Google Analytics Web site:

What is ecommerce tracking?
Ecommerce tracking is a snippet of code you can include on your site or app to collect transaction data like product sales, purchase amounts, and billing locations, and connect it to your Google Analytics account.

On second thought, would it be possible to implement something like this code across the whole site and make it work with our google analytics ID? :D

Can this be done for affiliate sales? I don't think so, but never thought about it.

Nobody is buying anything off of Wizzley. Transactions happen at the respective affiliate websites (i.e. Amazon).

You get a pretty good idea of what ads people are looking at by opening the "More" tab under "Module Clicks" in your dashboard. In your Amazon account you can see exactly what people buy.

Hi Chef, you're right. Forgot about the Module Clicks for a moment :)

I have what I think is a related question (I think).  On my Analytics, Wizzley shows zero visitors. So I tried to find out why, and it said on the Analytics page that "To set up tracking, you need to have access to the source code for your website." Then it said "First, find the tracking code snippet for your property.

  1. From any Analytics page, click Admin.
  2. Select the property you want to track.
  3. Check that the URL at the top matches the one for your website.
    If the settings are showing the wrong web property, click the link in the breadcrumb trail for your account, and select the correct property from the list.
  4. Click the Tracking Info tab."

And so on.

Well, I have not the slightest clue what the tracking code snippet is, never mind how to find it. Breadcrumb trail? Really?

Sometimes I feel so dumb when it comes to this stuff.

Another thing. I wanted to add an Amazon widget, and ran into the same thing, a bunch of code I am supposed to ad to the page to get the widgets, but where & how? It says "Highlight and copy the HTML below, then paste it into the code for your Web site." Sorry if I already asked this on another topic, I get lost in trying to do stuff and can't find where I asked a question. Old age.....

This is not the right way to set up Analytics because you don't have access to the source code, Terry. It's the procedure you use with your own websites.

Find several tutorials on how to do this on Wizzley - HERE.

However, to keep it simple, you could just use our internal traffic stats from your dashboard, which are derived from Analytics.

Also, Amazon widgets (from your Amazon affiliate account) are for your own websites. Here on Wizzley we provide the Amazon module and the Amazon carousel widget (although the carousel widget didn't work yesterday due to upgrades from Amazon's side).

Thank you, that cleared up a big mystery for me! Now I understand.
