Steps To Implement TikTok Pixel 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. Input your TikTok pixel ID in the container settings
  3. Download the container and import into your GTM account
  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 using the TikTok Pixel Helper Chrome Extension
  6. Once verified then publish

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

Common Issues

  1. You might receive an error in the Chrome Extension that you are missing an enhanced email match. Unless your user is logged in or on the checkout thank you page then you will not have this data to pass.
  2. If you are running dynamic product remarketing then ensure you have the same primary product ID in your catalog that matches the product ID uploaded in TikTok.
