The default Sales goal available in the platform is a custom goal that shows you :

  1. How many of your visitors who saw the experiment have bought something by reaching the thank you page of your selling funnel
  2. The average goal value amount
  3. The revenue per visitor calculated taking into consideration the amount of views the control or the variation has.
  4. The revenue which is the total amount of the transactions made by the visitors that saw the control or the variation.

In order to receive and visualize the statistics of the Sales goal properly,  you must set the details of your website accordingly.

To do that, go to your dashboard, click on your website’s name on the right and after on edit website.

Once you see the “Edit website” window, change the “Website type” to Online shop, select your “Domain of activity” ( select other if you can’t find yours ), after that enter the code of your “Currency” and the amount of “Visitors per month” your website has.
At the end, you have a checkbox that asks you if you want to “Send experiments data to Google Analytics as events”. If you want to receive data into your Google Analytics account, check the box and click Save.

You can also check it later if you can’t decide or if you don’t have Analytics installed on your website.

After you’ve setup the details of your website properly and clicked on save, you will be able to see all the data regarding Revenue into your experiments statistics page.

Now that everything is set up correctly into the dashboard, we move towards the installation of the Sales goal on your website.
To start, go to ‘Advanced’ category on the left menu and select ‘Goals’. There copy the “Integration ( Javascript)” code that appears on the same line:

Next, go to your thank you page and paste it somewhere between the <body> (your thank you page code will be here) </body> tags using <script> tag before and </script> after. Just like below:

<!-- start Omniconvert conversion goal code -->
<script>
window._mktz = window._mktz || [];
window._mktz.push(['_Goal', 'sale', 'VALUE', { transaction: 'TRANSACTION_ID' }]);
</script>

<!-- end Omniconvert conversion goal code -->
Attention! – You must replace VALUE with the JavaScript variable that returns the total revenue of your cart and TRANSACTION_ID with the JavaScript variable that returns the transaction id.

In the picture below you can see an example of how one of our customers changed the Value with the proper variable that returns the total amount from the cart.  Please be aware that you must use your own variable not the one presented below in the example.

 

Be sure that you’ve installed the Omniconvert main tracking code into the header of your thank you page right after the <head> tag. Otherwise the Sale goal will not send data to the statistics of your experiments.

Now that the Sale goal is in place on your thank you page and the main tracking code is between the <head></head> tags, you can test it with a test order that you can delete after.

After you’ve placed the order and you’ve reached the thank you page, don’t exit, right click somewhere on the page, select “View page source” , scroll to where the Sale goal has been implemented and check it out.  If the implementation was made correctly it must show the amount of the product you’ve bought.

Like in the example below where we bought a product worth $69.

Hint: A custom goal can be used for lead collecting websites to see the value of the visitors that converted into a lead. To do that, insert the goal code into the thank you page of the lead collecting form and change “Value” with the how much does a lead worth to you, 5,10, 100 dollars/euros etc.
