How do I track traffic source for adwords campaigns from one site to another?

My site ganttexcel.com receives traffic from adwords and organic traffic. The users then click the buy button and they are redirected to shopping cart page of another website infinityexcel.com where they complete the purchase

 

How do I figure out which adwords campaign resulted in a sale on infinityexcel.com?

 

I have google analytics setup on both websites.

Hi Pradeep,

 

The best method is to use Cross Domain Tracking.   If you can add customized code, follow these steps:

 

https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/linker

 

If not, then at least get the 3rd party to return them to your site after the transaction and you can add infinityexcel.com to the referral exclusion list as instructed.  This is sub optimal but better than nothing.

 

Best,
