Meta/Facebook

Meta/Facebook Conversions API (also known as the “CAPI”) allows to create custom actions and events and pass them directly from a site’s servers into Facebook for attribution. It is difficult to track conversions reliably using many of the off-the-shelf CAPI integrations, server-side GTM or Facebook's Conversions API Gateway alone: it's not uncommon to see inaccurate statistics - higher or lower conversions numbers in Facebook Ad manager than the actual purchases or conversions figure.

Inaccurate data and unreliable attribution do not only increase Facebook advertising costs and prevent getting a positive ROI from Facebook Ads, but eventually slow down business growth.
