How to Install the Facebook Pixel on your Lightspeed eCom site

Updated November 6, 2019

Installing your Facebook Pixel on your Lightspeed eCom site is a simple copy/paste process.

6 Steps to Install the Facebook Pixel in Lightspeed eCom

  1. If you haven’t already created your Facebook Pixel, begin by doing that. Once completed, copy your Pixel ID, you’ll need that later.
  2. Facebook allows you to add certain “events” that you can track, like adding to cart, starting checkout, viewing a page, etc., and it is important that you include key eCommerce events in your code. Facebook gives you two options to do this: guided setup and manual. If you’re not a developer, then we highly recommend the guided setup.

    For either, go to edit your Pixel through, and click the Set up button at the top right > Set up new events.

    This will prompt you to enter your website’s domain and then it will take you to your site and lead you through the rest of the set up.

  3. To actually set up your Pixel in Lightspeed eCom navigate to your back office, go to Settings > Web Statistics > Select “Setup Facebook Pixel”
  4. Copy and paste your Facebook Pixel code in that box
  5. Click save.
  6. Double check that the pixel is firing using the Facebook Pixel Helper extension for Chrome

The Pixel should now be set and ready to collect valuable customer data for your store. If you need professional help with the installation, please get in touch with us here.
