I more and more think that the key here is to be able to put the tracking code in the “after the sale” page. Or even to track the clicks on the “purchase” button, to be able to know if someone that came in via any advertising campaign ends up buying (and where did he come in from).
I know asking for things on forum doesn’t go anywhere, but guys, really, after 5 years, big success, several million dollars, i think is the time to give us authors a reliable and useful tool for tracking data, analytics, referals and so on. Normally i don’t check Envato Analytics, but today i was digging around and not only the info is uncomplete, unreliable and unuseful, but also sometimes is just surrealist. I won’t share any detail to avoid being accused of self-promotion, but i wonder how the system works to store such strange data.
