Choozle Dynamic Passback Tags

A dynamic passback tag is an image pixel associated with a conversion event that gives you the ability to pass back site-specific parameters into your Choozle reporting. By default, dynamic passback tags include revenue, currency, and order ID, but also allows you to add up to 10 additional custom parameters.

GUIDE:


Overview

Commonly used for revenue reporting, dynamic passback tracking is a customized tag that collects specified dynamic parameters on a conversion page. In addition to the default data points, you can also collect other parameters such as product names, cart contents, SKUs, or categories.

Choozle offers URL-based conversion tracking with the Smart Container Tag, but if your campaign requires additional conversion reporting, Choozle's dynamic passback tracking may be a great solution.

Key Benefits

Many marketers struggle to accurately track and demonstrate return on ad spend for their campaigns. Dynamic passback tracking takes a step beyond clicks and impressions, allowing marketers to surface revenue and other custom, site-specific data points in their reporting, opening up a wealth of opportunity for optimizations. 

Dynamic passback tracking results in an additional pixel which collects the specified dynamic variables in the page like shopping cart value, order ID, product name or SKU. A dynamic passback tag gives you the ability to integrate site-specific parameters into your Choozle reporting. By default, dynamic passback tags include revenue, currency, and order ID, with the ability to add up to 10 customizable site parameters.

 

How to Get Started

Dynamic Passback Tracking is a part of Choozle’s In-House Supported Solutions and can be implemented with the help of our Account Management team. To unlock and set up  dynamic passback tracking, please contact your Account Manager or our Support Team  for assistance and more information.

Choozle’s Technical Operations Team will generate a flat pixel, which facilitates dynamic passback tracking, that can be placed on your brand’s website to track the desired information.

 

Implementing the Passback Tag

To begin, the Choozle team will generate an image pixel associated with the conversion event in the platform. A standard image pixel will look like this:

<img height="1" width="1" style="border-style:none;" alt="" src="//insight.adsrvr.org/track/conv/?adv=lxd3raf&ct=0:ikqrr56&fmt=3"/>

 

When we provide the conversion pixel, we will append placeholder parameters which will be swapped out with the actual parameters you would like to pass back into your reporting. The provided dynamic passback pixel will then look like this:

<img height="1" width="1" style="border-style:none;" alt="" src="//insight.adsrvr.org/track/conv/?adv=1a51bfu&ct=0:7kykgzby&fmt=3&v={SaleAmount}&vf={Currency}&orderid={OrderRef}&td1={Param1}&td2={Param2}"/>


Before deploying the pixel, be sure to replace the curly bracketed placeholders values, such as {OrderRef} with the correct parameters according to your website or eCommerce platform.

The “v=”, “vf=”, and “orderid=” will always correlate directly to revenue, currency, and order ID respectively in with their own designated columns in Choozle reporting. You can also add up to 10 additional parameters (td1 through td10) in your tag, though the example provided only uses two. To add in more values of the td parameter, simply add &tdx={dynamicparameter_x} to the end of the URL in the tag, before the final parentheses. Keep in mind that you can only go up to td10. Anything beyond td10 will be ignored by the platform. Do not include any spaces in what you insert, as it may break the tag.

Reporting on Dynamically Passed Conversion Data

Once you have swapped in the correct parameters and placed the dynamic passback pixel on the corresponding conversion page, please reach out to your strategist or Choozle’s support team to set up an automated Conversion Details Report, as this is the only report that will contain these custom passback parameters.

Example Passback Tag Using Google’s Floodlight Parameters

<img height="1" width="1" style="border-style:none;" alt="" src="//insight.adsrvr.org/track/conv/?adv=1a51bfu&ct=0:7kykgzby&fmt=3&v=%pcost=!;&vf=%pu1=!;&orderid=%pord=!;&td1=%pu2=!;&td2=%pu3=!?"/>

{SaleAmount} becomes %pcost=!

  • cost is a variable that corresponds to cost

{OrderRef} becomes %pord=!

  • ord is a variable that corresponds to order reference

{Currency} becomes %pu1=! 

  • U refers to Google's custom parameters, numbered in the same way as our custom parameters. In this case, u1 populates currency

{Param1} becomes %pu2=!

  • In this case, u2 would populate a client's custom value defined within Google

{Param2} becomes %pu3=!

  • In this case, u3 would populate a client's custom value defined within Google
