Cross domain tracking not working for IE and Edge

I have managed to get Google Analytics eCommerce tracking working for our website and a 3rd party secure domain, that processes our transactions.  This is my code snippet;



        (function (i, s, o, g, r, a, m) {
            i['GoogleAnalyticsObject'] = r; i[r] = i[r] || function () {
                (i[r].q = i[r].q || []).push(arguments)
            }, i[r].l = 1 * new Date(); a = s.createElement(o),
            m = s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0]; a.async = 1; a.src=g; m.parentNode.insertBefore(a, m)
        })(window, document, 'script', '', 'ga');

        ga('create', 'UA-12345678-5', 'auto', 'ecommerceTracker', { 'allowLinker': true });
        ga('ecommerceTracker.require', 'linker');
        ga('ecommerceTracker.linker:autoLink', [''], false, true);
        ga('ecommerceTracker.send', 'pageview');

        ga('ecommerceTracker.require', 'ecommerce');


I've tested on Chrome, Firefox on Windows 10, and Chrome, Firefox and Safari on Mac, and all transactions are being recorded correctly, and are being tagged under the correct utm_source.


However, on Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge, all transactions are showing as direct / none.  Any ideas why this is and how to overcome this problem.
