1. The visitor submits their transaction to your server.
2. Your server receives the transaction data and processes the transaction. This may include a number of steps at the server level, such as sending a confirmation email, checking a credit card number, etc.
4. The receipt page is sent to the visitorís browser.
6. Hereís a basic diagram of the process. Again, the biggest challenge during implementation is adding code to your web server that inserts the transaction data, in the appropriate format, into the receipt page. Iíll cover the setup in part 2 of this series.
I have the fun job of cleaning up after another here - and we see what may be a substantial gap between what GA reports and what the shopping cart reports.
plus GA seems to report transactions differently depending on how you set the parameters.
