What does the wecantrack WordPress plugin do?
wecantrack’s WordPress plugin is an affiliate link tracking and attribution plugin that automatically processes and attributes affiliate conversion data in order to integrate it in the marketing tools the publisher uses. The plugin will track the website’s sessions and clicks and place unique click IDs in the affiliate URLs when a click happens.
Automatic Tracking & Attribution
Since wecantrack has integrations with over 300 different affiliate networks, the publisher can easily connect their affiliate network accounts to the system, simply by providing some API credentials or generating a Postback URL. The conversion data will then be traced back to the traffic data by using the click IDs that the plugin placed in the affiliate URLs.
Google Analytics Integration
If you want to integrate your affiliate conversion data in Google Analytics then our WordPress plugin is the right way to go. Due to the automated tracking and attribution, our system will have all the information it requires to integrate your conversion data in your Google Analytics account. With the click of one button the Google Analytics Integration feature will be activated.
Ad Network Integration
If you run paid ad campaigns in ad networks then our affiliate tracking WordPress plugin will ensure that your conversion data gets integrated in these ad networks. We currently support integrations for the following ad networks:
Automatic Affiliate Link Cloaking
Once you have installed and activated our WordPress plugin it will automatically cloak all your affiliate links, using your website’s root domain for the redirects. There is no need for you to manually create cloaked links when you make use of our plugin.
We of course also offer the functionality to leave the affiliate links uncloaked. In that case our system will place the click IDs directly in the affiliate links.
In case you are already cloaking your affiliate links through standard cloakers like Pretty Links, Thirsty Affiliates, Redirection, Affiliate Links Lite, Lasso, etc. you don’t need to worry, our plugin is compatible with these and will be able to place the click IDs during the redirect process.

I’m an affiliate marketeer for over 10 years now for various sites. The tricky thing is that you do not know where the sales are made. With wecantrack this is finally possible! It is really the plugin I was waiting for for over 10 years. Say goodbye to manual xls work!
WeCanTrack fixes the missing link I had for years in my affiliate data. Finally, I can calculate how much a page is worth, how much traffic from a certain channel is worth, which pages are most valuable… and have all that data automatically in Google Analytics and/or Google Data Studio.
This app has been the best tool for affiliate marketing I have invested in. I no longer need to log into several affiliate networks and download and compile reports. All the information I need is here and available in a few clicks.
