A Step-by-Step Guide to Install Facebook Pixel in Shopify

Shopify and Facebook are ever-changing ecosystems. Considering how beneficial Facebook is for Shopify Store owners, one cannot undermine the importance of Pixel – Facebook’s proprietary tracking tool for websites.

Pixel enables Shopify store owners to monitor how the visitors are interacting and navigating on their store. These interactions are called events, which play a very important role in analytics and also while launching marketing campaigns.

2021 saw huge changes adopted by Facebook for Pixel in response to the privacy-oriented changes offered by Apple’s IOS 14.  

Considering that, we have put together some easy steps that will enable you to set up Facebook Pixel on your Shopify Store in just a few minutes.

Please note that this blog post will be updated and edits will be marked in case of any new changes launched by Facebook regarding the Pixel Installation.
