How Ometria attributes orders
Attribution in Ometria begins by checking the last click, i.e. the last place a contact clicked (like a link in an email) before arriving at your site and placing an order.
If the last click was not from an Ometria campaign, we’ll check to see if they used a coupon code from an Ometria campaign, and if there was no coupon, then we’ll check if the contact clicked on an Ometria campaign within your specified time window.
The attribution priority is as follows:
- Visit: When a contact places an order while visiting your site, having clicked on a link in an Ometria campaign.
- Coupon code: When a contact places an order using a coupon code sent via an Ometria automation campaign within 31 days of receiving the coupon.
- Time window: When a contact places an order after clicking through an Ometria campaign within your defined time window (default two hours).
- When they visited your website from any other route.
