If you’re an e-commerce customer, you probably have products with different values. Wouldn’t you want to track your conversion data with the same value differentiation?
With dynamic values, you can add in unique product values for each purchase action on your site. Adding values (such as revenue per order) and order IDs to your conversion events will help you more accurately measure your return on investment and view the true value of each conversion.
Please note that tracking order values and IDs requires modification to the Event-Based conversion pixel code. Modifications made to and implementation of the Event-Based conversion pixel code cannot be troubleshooted by our Support team. We strongly recommend working with a web developer so that they can add the value dynamically at the time a purchase is made.
You can also add dynamic values to your conversions implemented using Google Tag Manager.
Adding an Order Value
To add a value to your conversion, you need to assign a new value to the ‘orderValue’ field sent along with the tracking event. For example, if your checkout value was $9.99, you would modify the code like this:
Please note that currency is required if passing in an orderValue
Changing the Currency
To report your value in a currency other than US dollars, modify the ‘currency’ field.
For example, if you would like to report in British Pounds, you would modify the code to read:
orderValue: ‘9.99’, currency: ‘GBP’
Adding an Order ID
To track Order IDs, assign a new value to the ‘OrderId’ field. So, if your checkout Order ID was ‘123456’, you would modify the code like this:
You could also combine all properties to track the Order Value, Order ID and Currency.
It’s important to note that placing dynamic values on your site code will override any default value you have set in the Conversions section of your dashboard.
Also, keep in mind that how you define a variable and pass it over from your website is based on how your site is structured and what information you want to receive. There are several standard options and you should consult with your web site’s development team or web developer to determine what is best for you and your campaign goals.
Google Tag Manager Dynamic Values
Please note that you will need to either use a pre-defined Variable for your value or create a new variable within Google Tag Manager. Outbrain Support cannot assist you with variable creation. We recommend consulting with a web developer for assistance.
