    Software to verify tracking is working
    Is there any software currently on the market for tracking affiliate sales i.e. testing the pixel? It would have to be independent of network.

    We can ping the Thank You page where the pixel resides but that doesn't mean it is working.

    Nothing I'm aware of - you are correct in that this issue presents a unique challenge, actually a bunch of them. The most obvious first one is that in order to get to a valid tracking pixel or script - the software would have to get thru the buying process.

    That part could obviously all be scripted but then you lose the third-party validity because it is essentially just testing the same thing over and over again and could be manipulated.

    A testing platform like Gomez could be an option, it is very flexible but also not inexpensive.

    Thanks Brian, will look into Gomez. Part of the function of the software has to be to reverse sales and clicks from test orders. Otherwise is skews the metrics and EPC.

    That part could easily be done with API calls I would think
