How To Add WooCommerce Snapchat Pixel For Conversion Tracking

Are you looking to add a WooCommerce Snapchat pixel to track conversions in your store?

Snapchat is one of the fastest-growing social media platforms and its dynamic ads let you bring users to your websites and drive massive conversions.

However, it’s equally important to keep a tab on ad spending and analyze the ROI of your campaigns.

For that, it’s important for you to set up Snap pixels.

By installing Snapchat pixel in your store, you’ll be able to track real-time signups, cart abandonments, new purchases, user interaction, and so much more.

With a variety of plugins claiming to do the job, there isn’t a perfect online guide that lets you do this easily.

But we have a simple way (that too without any coding!).

In this post, we will show how you can add a Snapchat pixel to WooCommerce and enable event-based conversion tracking in your store.

What is a Snapchat Pixel?

A Snapchat pixel is a Javascript code element that when added to your website helps you track the activities of Snapchat users on your website.

For example, if a Snapchat user goes on to your website from the app and views a page, then the ‘Page View’ event is captured on your Ad account. 

With the help of Snapchat pixels, you can track purchases, cart abandonment, product views, new signups, and more.

You can take advantage of real-time event tracking for audience retargeting and ad campaign optimization.

Here are the three major benefits of using Snapchat Pixel:

  • Tracking conversions on the website - View all the actions and conversions happening on your website that are being attributed to your ad campaigns.
  • Reaching the ideal audience - Create custom audiences based on the Snapchat users who interacted or actions they took on your website.
  • Optimizing the campaigns for sure shot conversions - Take advantage of real-time data to optimize and set up retargeting ad campaigns for getting sure shot conversions.

Events That Can Be Tracked With WooCommerce Snapchat Pixel

By installing the Snapchat pixel on your WooCommerce store, you’ll be able to track the following events:

  • Page View - A user lands on a specific page on your WooCommerce store
  • Add to Cart - A user adds an item to their WooCommerce shopping cart
  • Initiate Checkout - A user goes on to the checkout page 
  • Purchase - A user makes a purchase by going from the checkout to thank you page

These are the events you can track with WooCommerce Snapchat pixel.

Not just the different events, you’ll be able to know detailed information about these events such as:

  • Event variables - The variables associated with the event such as the product ID, product price, transaction ID, currency, and more.
  • User data - The information about the user such as their email address, phone number, IP address, name, and more.

With such information at your disposal, it’s a must to add the Snapchat pixel to your online store.
