Pixels are strings of code that are loaded when users visit and interact with website pages, such as when placing an order. Advertising pixels share interaction data with ad channels so interactions can be attributed to specific ad campaigns, helping advertisers measure and better understand ad performance and return on ad spend.
How does conversion tracking work?
You can use conversion tracking to track when your shoppers place a Buy with Prime order. With conversion tracking, you can share data about interactions on a website (such as orders placed) with ad channels to activate the ad channel to attribute that interaction to an ad campaign. By using Meta Conversion API, Meta Pixel, and Google Ads pixels for Buy with Prime, you can choose to send your Buy with Prime order information to ad channels. Note: When sending your Buy with Prime order information to ad channels, your ecommerce site URL is sent as the order URL, and the SKU is sent as the product ID.
