Create your sale's page
When creating your sale's page be aware of this:
Without fulfilling registration data in your CRM form the sale will not be tracked by PAP.

Before your customers make a sale they have to fill out the registration data in your CRM form. In our case it is PAP Landing Form. 
Please, make your customers fill out this form before they checkout.
