How to track commission from external links to shop
I have a (fairly new) online shop. We are starting to offer commission to third party websites who direct traffic to our website which result in sales from our shop. I have turned on the Ecommerce option in Google Analytics. How can I use Google Analytics to track and report the sales and commission for these leads?

Firstly you have to make sure that ecommerce is setup correctly on your site, turning the ecommerce option alone is not enough to track e-commerce transaction but rather you have to set up code changes on your site. Read how to set up Ecommerce Tracking on your website or app.
Once the tracking is setup correctly you can create a custom report which shows source / medium of traffic and sales that come from it and view sales data according to different leads on your site. Learn more about custom reports before implementing.
Also you should use utm_ parameters to make sure all incoming traffic sources are properly tracked.
