For advertisers that have the PrestaShop eCommerce platform, the quickest way to integrate is by purchasing the third-party Awin Plugin.

Alternatively, you can implement the Awin tracking free of charge by following the Generic Developer Guide or Google Tag Manager Guide.

The plugin is available in French and English, and you can select whether you would require developer support from PrestaShop for 3 months or 12 months (depending on the option chosen when buying the plugin).

Please contact the developer/PrestaShop if you have any issues with this plugin.

Versions that are supported are from: V1.6.0.4 to V1.7.6.2

Step One: Installing the Plugin

This is not an official Awin plugin. Please contact the developer of the plugin if you face issues with it.

Please find the English version here:

Step Two - Configuration

Fill in your Advertiser ID in Awin Tracking Code field, and type DEFAULT in Awin Conversion Code and then save the changes.

Last Step - Tracking Test

After integrating the Awin tracking you will need to create a test transaction via the Awin Interface to check the tracking is working correctly.

Complete the following steps to conduct a test transaction:

1. Log in to the Awin User Interface (UI) and use the navigation bar to go to Support > Integration > Tracking Diagnosis
2. Click ‘Create a test transaction’ to show the test transaction steps
3. Click the test publisher link shown on screen (this is unique to your programme and will track your test purchase)
4. Purchase a product on your site via the test link
5. Search the order reference in the 'Order Reference' search function to find your transaction in the Awin system.
Note: Tracking diagnoses are only available for transactions from the past 24 hours.
6. Check the 'Search Results' to see if there are any issues with your test transaction and learn of any potential issues on the UI. Issues are grouped into the following types:

  • Critical Issues - A critical issue has been found in relation to your tracking test. This will need to be resolved for your programme to be able to track transactions correctly/go live
  • Warnings - A warning doesn’t prevent your programme tracking transactions however it may lead to discrepancies and should be addressed as best practice.

7. If the results show no critical issues then your tracking has been established to a satisfactory level.
8. Contact to confirm you’ve completed a test transactions so they can verify your tracking is working correctly and provide technical sign-off.
Note: Remember to confirm with the Awin integrations team if you have set up for delivery and tax to be excluded in your Awin tracking and if you are giving visibility of voucher codes used for discounts when purchasing your products.
