Note: The manual install route is recommended if your store has a custom layout. We do recommend this is done by someone in your team who is familiar with code/scripts. As part of the install you will need to add the tracking code manually to your Shopify store layout. Below are the detailed instructions.
**Please make sure you follow steps 1-4 from our install guide first**
Step 1. Select the Manual route.
Step 2. Add Google Analytics web property ID:
Step 3. Next is the step where you will be instructed to add the scripts to your code. This is where you will press the COPY text, which will copy the script to clipboard.
NOTE: You can preview the tracking code here.
Step 4. You will then go to your Shopify admin > Online Store > Themes > Actions > Edit code and create a new snippet named LittledataLayer; you will then paste the script in and click on save.
Step 5. Then you will copy the 3 line code and paste the snippet in every one of your store’s layouts, just above the </head> tag. In the example below, we’ll paste the snippet in row 75.
NOTE: You will need to add the three line code to your layouts when you are installing our app, but also when you create another layout for a new campaign. Anytime you create a new layout, just follow these steps to add the code snippet.
Step 6. After adding the code, you will be prompted to disable the current Shopify tracker in order to prevent duplicate tracking.
NOTE: to enhance Shopify tracking, we suggest you use our Google Analytics connection after completing the Shopify set up. The instructions for connecting Google Analytics can be found in this guide.
