Not tracking Google Visits due to Dropping our gclid - help please

After a month of traffic, we are not attributing conversions from adwords correctly in Google Analytics. The only source of marketing we do is via adwords.

 

We have had 15 conversions, but the attribution is going to seo, referral, etc. But the only method of traffic we get is from adwords. My client is upset because we can attribute conversions to our campaigns. Can someone help. examples below - thanks everyone! 

 

If you drop this url in a web browser you will see that the tracking drops off.

www.utidoctors.com/?gclid=TeSter-123

if you track this url the gclid stays = https://www.amazon.com/?gclid=TeSter-123

 

Google says this is the issue

Sure.  The issue you are having is due to your www to non-www 301 redirect.  It hasn't been written quite correctly, therefore the gclid is being stripped when the redirect is performed.   The easiest solution for you is to remove the www from your final URL.
