Wicked Reports Integrates with PayPal
- March 2, 2017
Wicked Reports now integrates with PayPal, the open digital payments platform company. With nearly 200 million active account holders PayPal enables customers to connect and transact whether they are online, on a mobile device, in an app, or in person.
“Available in more than 200 markets around the world, the PayPal platform, including Braintree, Venmo and Xoom, enables consumers and merchants to receive money in more than 100 currencies, withdraw funds in 56 currencies and hold balances in their PayPal accounts in 25 currencies.”
With this integration PayPal users will know where their customers came from and why the sale appeared. Wicked Reports pulls in costs, clicks, leads, and sales to one data warehouse and that shifts the criteria for success from cost per click to return on investment.
To get full and accurate attribution data, you follow these two simple steps:
- Collect orders from your own order forms
- Put the Wicked Reports Tracking Code on the order form where the customer makes a purchase.
Note: Authorizing PayPal is a crucial step in attributing sales inside Wicked Reports but is not the only requirement. You must still collect orders from your own order forms. It’s important that our Wicked Tracking Code is still on the order form where the customer makes a purchase. If you use the PayPal Order Forms, Wicked Reports will pull in your orders but they will likely NOT have any “Last Click” attribution as we won’t know where the customer click came from.
If orders do not go into the Wicked Reports CRM, you must first authorize PayPal inside Wicked Reports. This may happen if you are not using Ontraport or Infusionsoft or if you offer PayPal as an option. PayPal requires an API signature for the authorization process.
A video in the Wicked Reports KnowledgeBase takes customers through the authorization process from start to finish, giving simple clear directions. The KnowledgeBase also includes easy-to-follow written instructions.
“I started my ecommerce business out of my condo in 2011 and struggled for years to generate any traction from advertising. I could never tell what was working and what wasn’t. But everything changed once I got Wicked Reports installed in my business. Now I make decisions based on data instead of hunches. Wicked Reports allowed us to grow our business to $4 million with only 4 employees! And in the last 90 days, we’ve made over $200k from spending $30k on Facebook ads alone. Wicked Reports helps us increase our conversion rates, lower acquisition cost and double the ROI on our online marketing efforts!”
“Because of Wicked Reports we were able to cut spend in half for re-engagement and doubled customer acquisition and it was super profitable. Most effective month ever! ”
“Since we started using Wicked Reports, we’ve gotten much deeper insight into how our many marketing campaigns are performing, all the way down to ROI on each campaign and ad. Wicked Reports saves us both time and money, and we’re happy to recommend them and their team to anyone that’s spending money on digital advertising. It's a game changer for any serious small business. ”
