E Commeerce and Source tracking problem

I am experiencing quite an issue here. We are driving traffic to one child website, through which visitors should be led to parent website where they can make a purchase.
Ecommerce is linked to the parent account.
We tried to track visitors via utms but still we cannot see any conversion from AdWords. On the other hand, we have numerous assisted conversions from AdWords.
Is there any chance to solve this and to track conversions properly?
In addition, we cannot change anything on the parent website, as they are our partners.
Parent website is themeforest - we cannot drive traffic to our page there, as AdWords woun`t let us.
Also, we cannot change anything in regards to sales funnel scheme.

If you cannot use Cross Domain tracking (best practice but requires code customization on both sites) then multi-channel (assisted) is the right choice. Basically all traffic is going to show as a referral or if you use utm tags on links then whatever you add in for your params.

If you can / could customize parent site then cross domain and other options are available.
