To Create The Fb Pixel And Connect It Properly To Shopify Watch The Video Bellow, But Before, read the red text.

IMPORTANT/URGENT: Before you watch the video i want to explain a few things.

Facebook has  a featured called facebook shop & Instagram Shop, Here you create a store in facebook, and people can shop from facebook or instagram without leaving the platform.

Please note that we use Shopify as shop, and facebook just to create ads and send traffic to the shopify store (not create a shop in fb).

So if you try to create a facebook shop, be sure that 99% your ad account will be disable, because facebook will review all your products, and will flag them as "violate policy" or what ever other reasons.

Again, Please do not create a facebook shop or IG shop, and do not submit your product catalog to facebook.

Please Just Follow The Video To Create And Install The Pixel, and thats it:

Part 7 - VERY IMPORTANT => Read Facebook Ad Policy

Please it is very important to read and understand facebook ad policy at https://www.facebook.com/policies/ads/ if you ignore this , your ad may be rejected (as you did not respect one or two rules) you can even get your ad account disabled.
