Free Magento 2 Facebook Tracking Pixel Extension

Free Magento 2 Facebook Tracking Pixel Extension

If you need to run Facebook ads, but if you don’t have easy access to a developer then getting the tracking code implemented for Facebook isn’t easy. Here at Cadence Labs we’ve created a free Magento 2 Facebook Tracking Pixel extension which is great for running retargeting ads on Facebook. Our extension will be on the Magento Marketplace soon.  With the extension installed on your Magento 2 site, you can track many of the various Facebook pixel events.

HOW TO INSTALL OUR MAGENTO 2 FACEBOOK PIXEL EXTENSION

Download & install the extension through Magento Marketplace
https://marketplace.magento.com/cadence-fbpixel-m2.html

Or…

Install manually using github:

https://github.com/cadencelabs/m2-fbpixel

mkdir -p app/code/Cadence/Fbpixel && git clone https://github.com/cadencelabs/m2-fbpixel app/code/Cadence/Fbpixel
php bin/magento setup:upgrade

 

Get Your Facebook Pixel

See the Facebook guide to creating and installing pixels here.

After you login to the Ads Manager, go to Tools -> Pixels

choose_pixel

By default, you should see the Facebook Pixel Tab – you will find your Pixel ID on the right side of the screen:

get_pixel_id

Enter Your Pixel Id

Once you’ve found your Pixel ID, enter it into the Magneto admin under Stores -> Configuration -> Cadence Labs -> Facebook Pixel.

Our Extension Tracks Multiple Events

This extension supports stores with multiple currencies, and tracks the below events:

  • View
  • Purchase
  • Add To Cart
  • Add To Wishlist
  • Initiate Checkout
  • View Product
  • Search Products

You must enable the events you want to track in the admin.
**At this time Facebook does not track order IDs, products or other information about the purchase. We recommend tracking this information using Google Analytics.

    Seriously, you guys rock. I haven’t had an issue with any of your free extensions. I’d even be a tester if you need some help that way.

    Thanks for being such a giving outfit

    I have installed Facebook Pixel tracking extension on Magento 2 website https://www.makevana.com.au. But it’s not working, I have enabled all events in admin, but no events are reported. I installed facebook pixel helper chrome extension to find out the issue and there is the error message. ” One pixel found – The Facebook pixel code on this page didn’t load, so no information was sent to Facebook”

    Thanks for sharing, I have a question. Do I have to install the facebook pixel by extension? If I put the facebook pixel code into magento backend, is it work? Can I put it into this magento backend position (content->configuration->html head->scripts and style sheets) ?

    Hi there,

    I’m having problems with installation on a multi-site environment in Magento 2. It seems to be hard to setup 2 pixels in different stores, and only the pixel from the ‘default config’ is being shown.

    Can this somehow be resolved? Cache and everything has been cleared.

    Hi Gillian,
    I got a strange issue after installing the module.
    while adding Grouped products to cart the page freezes and reloads in a flash,but product is added to cart.
    This doesn’t occur if the module is disabled.
    Can you help me on this one.?

    How would I get a separate ‘review’ pixel on the payment step page of the M2 default checkout?
