Maybe Elite users have some special features making this easier to set up? I doubt that this can be done with adwords + analytics or am I wrong?

yes Elite users have analytics tracking on items, and sales tracking on the “thank you for your purchase” page.

Do you see your adwords sale conversion in google analytic?

yes initially I didn’t see any sales from my adwords (only clicks).

I think I disabled auto tagging on my adwords campaigns, and manually set all the utm* url parameters in each adwords URL.

eg: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1033867?hl=en

after I disabled adwords auto-tagging and put my own utm* URL parameters in I started to see just clicks again for a while, then I started to see sales.

I’m pretty sure my ads were just bad and not making me any direct sales, the auto-tagging thing shouldn’t make any difference.

I’ve since setup utm* paramters on my landing page/site and I am seeing sales data coming through that way now:

51 posts
  • Has referred 200+ members
  • Has sold $10,000+ on Envato Market
  • Has been a beta tester for an Envato feature
  • Has collected 1+ items on Envato Market

Wow, that’s really nice, I wish we could all get this at some point!

I am not using my own landing page, I am giving my item page url as landing page, then where should I paste the utm* generated code?

and what is the “Website URL * ” in my case, shall I use themeforest.net?

I used code from 1st page, it works good. We try to get info for sales from Adwords – > Our site page – > Themeforest page. I see utm_* parameters on site, cookie and JS work well. But I don’t see this utm parameters in any reports in Google analytics (not in our site analytics, not in themeforest analytics for elite authors).

Where I should see it? In what section of Google Analytics? I should see this for our site or for themeforest site stats?

I have more than 200+ clicks for our ad in adwords, all this people go to our site, but I don’t see any utm_* paramethers stats in analytics.

Look under Acquisition > Campaigns in your Elite Google Analytics account. This should show any utm* parameters.
