Report GCLID value on Thank You Page

We are storing inbound gclid values on our landing pages from our ads. This is an ecommerce site.  Since we can't rely on cookies for conversion tracking, on the thank you page, we can retrieve the gclid value.


My question: we are using Google Tag Manager - how do we report the gclid value back to GA on the thank you page, assuming we can retrieve the original gclid value?

With GTM, create a URL/Query variable based on the gclid URL parameter.

Then use that parameter in a pageview tag, as a session-level custom dimension for instance.
