Steps To Implement Impact Radius with Shopify

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. Update your Base Tag ID and Conversion Tag ID in the tag settings. These are provided in your onboarding instructions from your Impact account manager.
  3. Download the container and import into your GTM account
  4. Verify your base and conversion tag IDs are accurate. Then Put GTM into preview mode
  5. Go through each event you’ve implemented from the table above and verify the tag fires as expected.
  6. Once verified then publish

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

Common Issues

  1. The click ID parameter is not accessible on the thank you page. This can happy when using a third party checkout besides native Shopify.
  2. Email parameter is undefined when sent to Impact. Impact prefers not to receive null values for parameters.
