Facebook Pixel's tracking and optimization tools can help you increase conversions on your store.

  • You can use it by placing a conversion pixel on your store and then adding it to a Facebook ad.
  • With our optimization tool, you can also use pixels to help Facebook find the people most likely to take the actions you want on your store and show ads only to them.

  • AddToCart
  • InitiateCheckout
  • AddPaymentInfo
  • Purchase
  • Search

Verify Facebook Pixel is working

Facebook Pixel should register data in near real-time as your customers interact with your store pages. To see the data:

  1. Go to Ads Manager on Facebook.

  2. Click the Facebook Pixel tab.

  3. You should now see your pixel dashboard:  

If you don't see data in your dashboard, then it could mean:

  • No activity yet: Facebook hasn't received data from the pixel yet. Give your customers some time to interact with your store to generate data right after installation.

  • No recent activity: Return to your store pages, then check that the visit is tracked by Facebook Pixel. If your visit shows up, then the pixel is working.
