    • Site id is your Piwik website ID. Your site ID can be found in the Piwik administration panel
    • Piwik URL is the URL of your Piwik website
    • Token_auth is used to record the order IP address of the confirmed or deleted orders. It is an optional parameter. If it is not set, the orders are still tracked, but the recorded IP address can be the one from the payment notification. If set, the recorder IP address is the one stored in the order, ie the client's IP address which is the exact user IP. What is the token_auth and where can I find this token to use in the API calls?

    • Order status confirmed order: you can select one or more order status for the tracked orders
