Steps to Implement
Step 1: Overivew
Without a single line of code and done in minutes, Elevar helps you implement all of your Twitter pixel events to Shopify through Google Tag Manager using the most up-to-date requirements from each platform.
Plus – these templates come with built-in monitoring so you’re the first to know when a pixel breaks and risks impacting your campaigns.
This integration supports all of the remarketing and audience standard options available with your Twitter Advertising.
Twitter is the #1 platform for discovery. Connect to the most valuable and receptive conversations and audiences with a Twitter Ads campaign. Learn more about Twitter Ads here.
Step 2: Install Data Layer to Your Store
In order to deploy Twitter’s pixel 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 Twitter’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 3: Download Container for GTM
Inside of your Elevar account, go to Pre Built Tags > Twitter.
Update your Twitter Universal Tag ID in the tag settings shown below.
Download the container and save to your computer.
Step 4: 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 Universal Tag ID variable is accurate.
Step 5: 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 Twitters tags trigger as expected.
Remember that the data layer from step 2 needs to be live on your store in order for the variables – like revenue and order id – to populate.
Go through each event you’ve implemented from the table above and verify the pixel fires as expected using the Twitter Pixel Helper Chrome Extension.
