Daisycon has developed a Shopify app to implement the tracking pixel in a Shopify webshop. This is the easiest solution for advertisers to implement tracking in their Shopify webshop.
The Daisycon Shopify App can be found here: apps.shopify.com/daisycon. Make sure you are logged in to your Shopify store and then click on 'Add app'. You will be redirected to your App installation page of your Shopify store. Click on 'Install app'. Login with your Daisycon user credentials.
Setup of the Daisycon app
- All advertiser accounts to which your user-account has access to will be available. Select the advertiser account in which the campaign is available. Most often there is only one advertiser account available.
- Select the correct campaign.
Option to set variable commissions
The product level conversion pixel in the Daisycon app has the possibility to set variable commissions based on the ‘product type’ attribute. This feature allows you to offer different commissions for different types of products, giving you greater flexibility and control over your affiliate program.
For the transaction-id variable, 'Order-ID' is used instead of the 'Order-number'. This order-id is pre-filled with 'id_' in the conversion pixel. This means that the transaction-id looks different then the actual order-number in your Shopify order overview. The Order-ID is used instead, because this variable is always generated at the time the thankyou page loads, while the order-number might have a little delay. However, in most transactions, the order-number is available and when it is, the extra-4 variable will display the order-number. If the order-number is not available in the extra-4 variable, you can find the corresponding order by filling in the order-id (without 'id_') in your Shopify order overview.
Daisycon has the possibility to retrieve raw product data that can be used for a product feed. However, we recommend to use good datafeed management software or a datafeed (product feed) Shopify app instead. These are developed to generate good quality e-commerce product feeds, while the Daisycon app connection only retrieves raw product data and is not optimized for online marketing purposes.
Automation of transaction approval
The app has automation of transaction approval functionality implemented. You can Enable this feature. Fill in the number of days after you would like to run the automatic order approval. Take the number of days into account the customer can return their order.
If you have multiple stores, for example for different GEO's, repeat above process for each of the stores.
Alternative implementation methods
Besides the Daisycon Shopify App, it's also possible to implement a script in the additional script text box in the order processing section (Settings -> Checkout -> Order processing). This script is a standard conversion pixel, that measures the (sub)total amount of a transaction. Ask your contact person at Daisycon for more information.
Daisycon advices to use the Daisycon Shopify App and can only give limited support with these scripts!
