Facebook Pixel is a tool that tracks analytical data that measures the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements. An Associate can add this tracking to their eCommerce Shop and Web Office by merely adding the Facebook Pixel ID to the Web Office with the Visitor Tracker widget.

But for you to receive any analytical data, you'll need to implement your tracking. This guide will show you how to add the Facebook Pixel code with the JavaScript Insertions page.

️Disclaimer

You should always test any implementation in your Stage environment if your plan includes a Stage environment.



Creating a Facebook Pixel

If you haven't already, create a Facebook Pixel.

Facebook's Business Help Center has a helpful article to get you started.

We're going to add the Pixel code manually, so you'll need to have that available.

You can find it by following these steps:

  1. Log in to Facebook, and go to your Ads Manager account.
  2. Go to the Pixels tab in Events Manager.
  3. Click Set Up Pixel.
  4. Click Manually add pixel code to website.


Adding a JavaScript Insertion

Navigate to your Admin-of-choice's JavaScript Insertions page. For this guide, we're going to use eCommerce Admin.

  1. In the JavaScript Insertion page, click + ADD NEW and select Custom Script. The Add Insertion pop-up window opens.
  2. In the pop-up, enter a Name to add context to the insertion and help find it later.
  3. In the JavaScript Code editor, start a try...catch statement.
try {

}

catch (ex) {
    console.log('Facebook Pixel Integration', ex);
}
