The custom scripts app on PayWhirl has MANY uses. It can be used to CUSTOMIZE any of the pages PayWhirl provides, from widgets, to the cart & checkout flow, to the customer portal, and much more. 

The app also allows you to include 3rd party CONVERSION or TRACKING scripts on widgets, payment forms or after completed checkouts.

POPULAR USES FOR THE CUSTOM SCRIPTS APP

  • Conversion Tracking
  • Affiliate Tracking
  • Customizing PayWhirl

To install the custom tracking scripts integration click Apps & Integration in the Main Menu of your account and then click "Install App" next to Custom Tracking Scripts app:

NOTE: If you have multiple tracking scripts, you can install as many custom script apps as you need, or add multiple scripts to a single app.

Once you have installed the app successfully you will see two different tabs on the settings page. One section will load scripts on EVERY PAGE PayWhirl provides and the other section will only load scripts AFTER CONVERSIONS, when people complete checkout successfully. 

Typically the service you are using for tracking will provide a snippet of code that needs to get run on "Every Page" or just after "Conversions". Make sure to paste the code in the correct tab, including <script> tags. 

PayWhirl also provide variables (information from your customers & checkout data) to help you customize your tracking scripts and/or inject data into scripts as needed.

You can use any of the following variables to inject customer data into the tracking scripts:

You can also use LOGIC inside of the custom scripts app to help you loop through data from a transaction (for example):

{% for item in invoiceitems %}
     
         trackItem({    
                'sku': '{{ item.sku }}',    
                'quantity': '{{ item.quantity }}',    
                'price': '{{ item.amount }}'
         });

{% endfor %}


You can also use jQuery to customize, animate and/or style pages within PayWhirl as needed... Finally, after loading conversion or tracking scripts you can optionally forward customers to a specific thank you page if you'd rather not direct customers to your customer portal after a purchase.

NOTE: If you are not familiar with how to edit the code to include the variables we provide, you may need the help of a developer to get scripts working correctly.
