Google Conversion Adjustments

This destination is currently under final review and will be available soon.

Google is a multinational technology company focusing on online advertising, search engine technology, cloud computing, and computer software. Taking advantage of the Google Ads API Upload Conversion Adjustments, you can amend conversions values initially reported by other means (E.g. via client-side tags).

Destination setup

To adjust a conversion, you must first have a conversion action set up, and conversions must have been reported in Google Ads interface.

Google recommends waiting 24 hours after a conversion is reported before sending adjustments. This will avoidCONVERSION_NOT_FOUNDorTOO_RECENT_CONVERSION upload errors. Also, wait 4-6 hours after creating a conversion action before adjusting its conversions to avoid a TOO_RECENT_CONVERSION_ACTION upload error.

To identify the conversion and when a transaction identifier is not provided, this destination will try to include the gclid if its value is provided in the Google Click Id field (See Configuration for more details). If this is not set, the following cookies, in the presented priority order, are used to retrieve a proper value:

  1. _gcl_aw

  2. _gcl_dc

  3. _gac_[GA_PROPERTY_ID]

On the other hand, when a transaction identifier is present both the gclid and conversionDateTime are removed from the hit to prevent the GCLID_DATE_TIME_PAIR_AND_ORDER_ID_BOTH_SET upload error. More details on all upload errors are available following this LINK.

Conversion adjustments don't work with conversion actions whose type is UNKNOWN . In addition, adjustments for a conversion whose click has a gbraid or wbraid instead of a gclid will fail with a CONVERSION_NOT_FOUND upload error.
