Steps to Implement
Step 1: Install Data Layer to Your Store
In order to deploy Pinterest remarketing tags and conversion tracking via Google Tag Manager tags, you need to have a data layer implemented on your Shopify store that pushes customer, product, and order data that Pinterest’s tags require.
If you don’t have a data layer for your Shopify store yet, then you can utilize Elevar’s data layer for Shopify. It’s a 1-click installation into your theme.
Step 2: Download Container for GTM
Inside of your Elevar account, go to Pre Built Tags > Pinterest.
Update your Pinterest pixel ID in the tag settings shown below.
Download the container and save to your computer.
Step 3: Import Container to GTM
Next up, go to your Google Tag Manager container > Admin > Import.
Be sure to select Merge container, not overwrite.
Once you’ve imported, verify your Pixel ID variable is accurate.
Step 4: QA & Publish
Once you’re ready to go live then put GTM into preview mode.
You can navigate the site and place an order to verify your Pinterest tags trigger as expected.
Remember that the data layer from step 1 needs to be live on your store in order for the variables – like revenue, product data, customer email, and order id to populate.
