Splio’s Sales Tracker provides resources for Splio Customers to link a campaign sent from a Splio universe or SMTP Relay to the associated sales, executed on the customer’s side. The Sales Tracker is an invisible picture placed on the final confirmation page of payment on your website (note that it can be placed on as many pages as you wish). The picture, which has neither width nor height, is connected to Splio’s tracking server.
There is no action to be made on Splio’s side and you can start using this feature right away.
If you require assistance, feel free to contact our support team.
You only need to set-up two parameters to make it work and enable the cookie in Admin>Privacy>Settings.
- your universe’s name
- the purchase amount (as shown in the example below).
URL: United Resource Locator
SSL: Secured Socket Layer
- When a recipient clicks on a link in the newsletter, we add cookies to the local Internet client. They contain the following information:
- ID of the customer without any personal information
- Campaign ID of the newsletter clicked
- URL ID of the link clicked
- When the purchase is made, the tracker registers the total value of the basket provided into the https request and matches it with the email address, campaign ID and URL ID.
- The campaign’s turnover is then available and displayed within the universe.
Statistics available with the tracker:
Once the tracker is activated, the following statistics will be available in your Splio universe:
- Total purchases by campaign
- Total value (turnover) by campaign
- Total purchases by user
- Total value (turnover) by user
- Turnover generated per link *
*You will also be able to segment users with the total purchases amount. (Only available to campaigns sent from Splio platform, not SMTP Relay)
Please note that there will be some discrepancies between the results you are seeing in your Google Analytics metrics & with the Splio Sales Tracker. This is due to the fact that Google Analytics is using first-party data to make its sales' analysis whereas our Sales Tracker is using only third-party data, therefore, we can only track visitors who have accepted cookies. We strongly recommend that you use the ROI feature available on our platform when possible.
For more information on this, please speak to your Splio contact.

All requests have to use the https protocol.
