Then follow these steps to get your pixel tracking in no time:

  1. Ensure you have a data layer implemented on your store that pushes Shopify data (like product SKU, revenue) into the data layer *
  2. Download the container and import into your GTM account
  3. Go to the variable named 00 – UPDATE AFTER IMPORT – Bing ID and update this value to match your Bing pixel ID
  4. Put GTM into preview mode
  5. Go through each event you’ve implemented from the table above and verify the pixel fires as expected within GTM preview mode
  6. Once verified then publish

*If you don’t have one yet, install the GTM Suite from app store which implements complete data layer in 1 click. 

Common Issues

  1. $0 or $1 conversion value showing inside of your Bing Account
  2. Missing conversions from 3rd party purchase systems like ReCharge, Bold, etc. Be sure the dataLayer is implemented in these apps as well
