How does it work?

Our JavaScript tag automatically locates each affiliate URL and appends an ID to it. It also collects your website’s session and click data. Once a sale is reported in Pepperjam, it is collected by wecantrack through the API connection. After that the sale is being attributed to the click and session and then imported to Google Analytics.
