Description

Experience Level: Intermediate
I have a problem tracking conversions accurately.

So my options (as far as I know) are:
1.) Put the code in the checkout page - but then I will record some false conversions because the user didn't really complete the payment
2.) Put the code in my "thank you for your order" page, but then not all the conversions will be recorded

Any solutions?

Paypal's message on their auto return feature:

Note: If you have enabled Auto Return and have chosen to turn on PayPal Account Optional for new users, a new user will not be automatically directed back to your website, but will be given the option to return.

Paypal IPN integration will fix the problem where if the customer does not click on "return to merchant" the order will still show on my admin panel as paid. However this will not fix the google conversion problem.
