eWhisper and netmeg,
Thanks for your thoughts! Well, in addressing ewhisper 1st & 2nd points, we need to have exact purchase amounts (not number of conversions or average sale amounts) so that we can proper ROI etc.
For point #3, would you kindly clarify? I didn't understand (thanks!)
netmeg, thanks. All I can tell you is that when customers hit our Paypal buy now buttons, they're taken off site and complete their purchase on Paypal (URL shows https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr)...which, I guess, puts me out of luck since it's not "integrated" I think like you were saying. Hmmm, other solutions? I had one but it seems kindof ancient: Assuming we have 8 products, what if, instead of having ONE customized success/confirmation page, I created 8 success/confirmation pages. That way I would only need to modify that one line (and maybe the product label) within the Google Conversion Snippet on my custom confirmation page. In other words, only Paypal orders for product A, say, will see sucecss page A coded only for A's price. Same goes for product B (would see success page B with B's price in the snippet). etc. etc. What do you guys think about this? And is there a smarter easier way?
I'd also still really be interested to know if / why not Google's snippet code on my Success page can't just get the pricing info from a Paypal cookie that was left on Paypal checkout (if there is one), and can't the conversion code snippet "see". I do have the price codes built into the buy now buttons (using their "My buttons" feature....which I thin(?) encrypts the data, or kindof puts a key/string on a lot of that info which is later read by their server (yeah, I guess it's a type of encryption). Anyway, I'm writing too much. Thanks for your continued thoughts and solutions. Much appreciated.
