I'm trying to integrate the sales tracking of Aweber into our checkout process. All items use the e-junkie generated Thank You pages.
I don't see a way to add parameters to the thank you page. If there is that would be the way to go. So first question - is there a way to append parameters to the Thank You page URL when using the built-in Thank You page.
<!-- AWeber Analytics Customization Code -->
<!-- end AWeber Analytics Customization Code -->
Here is the issue. If I put this code into the Global Thank You customization the template variables do not convert to the actual values. If I put the code into a specific product's Thank You customization the variables do convert to actual values.
Obviously it is better to do this globally rather than have to remember to add the code to each product that is created.
To summarize my post:
1. Is it possible to append parameters to the built-in e-junkie Thank You page URL?
2. Why do my template variables convert correctly on products but not in the global customization?
Thank you for any insight.

Item-specific template variables will only work in product-specific Message (HTML) fields; they will not work in the Common Thank-you Page HTML field because that field is not associated with any particular product. Your E-junkie-generated thank-you pages will include both your Common Thank-you Page HTML at the bottom of the page and the Message (HTML) for each item ordered.
This help page lists which template variables will work in which fields, and at the end of the page you can see an example demonstrating which customization fields get inserted where:
...you could put this part in your product's Message (HTML) field:
...and put this in your Common Thank-you Page HTML field:
One issue with this is that orders for multiple items would have the same item-specific vars declared multiple times, which can be a problem if your tracking code doesn't provide a way to distinguish vars for one item from another. In this case you may need to use our Buy Now buttons, which bypass our cart and take buyers directly to instant checkout for just one item at a time:
Finally, bear in mind the caveats about thank-you page visits explained here:
Download buyers would need to visit their E-junkie thank-you page at some point to claim their download, but if you're selling tangible goods or services rather than downloads, see the tips here to have buyers auto-redirected to your E-junkie thank-you page after checkout:
