Anyone have some suggestions of how best to track products and purchases through a points redemption type flow? The products can be priced in dollars, points or a combination of points and dollars. A point is not 1:1 with 1 dollar and isn't really considered revenue.
Is the best solution to simply set up a numerical event to track the points component and set the product revenue to 0 or the balance amount if a combination? I'm assuming the product category and product should not be changed regardless of how its being purchased?
Any other ideas or suggestions would be appreciated
you can send use s.products to send multiple events as per doc
Product-Specific Currency Events
If a currency event receives a value in the products variable instead of the events variable, it applies only to that value. This is useful to track product-specific discounts, product shipping, and similar values. For example, if you configured event 1 to track product shipping, a product with a "4.50" shipping charge might appear similar to the following:
so send both the total revenue and the points (points as an event).
You can then use numeric 2 classification to create a new revenue metric based on the revenue and the points. Numeric 2 classification allows you create new metrics, like revenue and lets say that for jan 2017 revenue = revenue * (0.1 + points).
