Conversion tracking

Set up conversion tracking for Buy with Prime

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 and get reporting on your performance.

By using Meta Conversion API, Meta Pixel, Google Ads pixel, and Google Analytics for Buy with Prime, you can choose to send your Buy with Prime order information to Meta and Google.

Meta conversion tracking

With the Social Ads for Buy with Prime app, you can set up Meta Conversion API and Meta Pixel to share your Buy with Prime orders with Meta. Only order events are sent at this time - “Add to Cart” events aren’t supported. This is the most comprehensive approach to sharing data with Meta.

To set up your Meta Conversion API and Meta Pixel:

Google Ads conversion tracking

Google Ads pixel has two components— the Google Ads conversion ID and Google Ads purchase conversion label. The Social Ads for Buy with Prime app allows you set up Google Enhanced Conversion API and Google pixel to share your Buy with Prime orders with Google server-to-server, including customer data that can help Google improve ad attribution. This is the most comprehensive approach to sharing data with Google.

  5. Open the merchant console for Buy with Prime.
  6. From the side menu, choose Settings, and then Advertising IDs.
