    Hello. I am a bit at a loss. Do I have to install my pixel twice? Once with the WordPress integration and once with the WooCommerce integration?

    Or do I have to install one pixel for WordPress and another pixel for WooCommerce?

    Or is it that I only need to install one pixel for WooCommerce?

    Thanks,
    Lucas

      Hi Lucas,

      Thanks for your query.
      Only one pixel for WooCommerce is okay to go. Simply install the pixel for WooCommerce, that’s it.

      Cheers 🙂

        Hi Mainul,

        I use WooCommerce for a quotation feature on my website (made in WordPress).
        Should I install the Pixel with both WordPress and WooCommerce integrations?

        What happens if I only choose one or the other?

        Thanks a lot!

          Hi Debora,

          Thanks for your comment. You can only install with WooCommerce. That would be enough. You don’t need to do both. If you need more information, don’t hesitate to comment again.

          Cheers 🙂

    Hi Mainul,

    I have 10 products on my 1 WordPress website. I want to track all of my each 10 products. (conversion, pageview, add to cart,thankyoupage)

    Then, Do I have to create another 10 each pixel ID per 10 products?

      Hi Yun,
      No, you can track all of them with a single pixel id. If you are using WooCommerce, you can try WooCommerce Conversion Tracking. It makes tracking on Facebook easier for WooCommerce stores.

      Cheers 🙂

    Hi Mainul,

    When I download the pixel on Facebook, I don’t have the zip file needed to be installed on WordPress, I only have .php files. Any ideas how should I do?

    Thanks!

      Hi LEO,

      Thanks for your comment.

      I would recommend you using WooCommerce Conversion Tracking if your site is based on WooCommerce. You can read this blog to learn more.

      Otherwise, you can download Facebook’s own Plugin from here. And follow this blog.

      Cheers 🙂

    Hi there. Thank you for the very well laid out information. I have installed the facebook pixel on my website. Then I added in the plugin facebook for woo-commerce. In order to complete the setup it asks me to select a pixel and shows that I already have a pixel installed. In the drop down options it doesn’t give me my businesses pixel however, so I can not complete the setup.

    Should I manually install the pixel in the header? The only thing with that that concerns me is that my site does already have the pixel properly installed. I could create a shop pixel instead and install that if you think that would be best. Need help?

    Thanks a lot for this awesome post!

    I followed your steps and have created and installed pixel on the website. I don’t see the pixel under WP Admin -> Settings, however, when I use Facebook’s chrome extension, it’s showing me that it’s there. So, assuming it’s all working fine.

    Have couple of quick questions for Step 4.
    1) Yes, I do see a notification from WooCommerce to finish setting up Pixel. As far as I understand, even if I don’t do this, Facebook Analytics section will still have the analytics data – please correct me if I am wrong here.

    2) When I tried to finish setting up the plugin in WooCommerce, the last section mentioned that the Website must sell physical goods. Now, my Website sells Virtual products and services so I didn’t finish this step. Let me know if you have some more information on this.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    The dangers of just installing the base pixel code manually are that many user events are simply not able to be determined. You will lose a lot of money if you don’t get this right!
