A. Create a Facebook Pixel

To create a Facebook Pixel, you need access to Facebook Business Manager for your online store.

Log in to Events Manager.

Click Connect Data Sources.

Select Web and click Connect.

Enter your new pixel's name in Name Your Pixel, then click Create Pixel.

Enter your website URL.

Select Do it yourself, then click Next.

Select Conversions API and Meta Pixel and click Next.

Select Set up manually and press Next.

You do not need to configure the events in the next few steps since ShopBase simplifies the process for you and saves you time and effort. Simply click the Cancel > Confirm to skip these steps.

After creating a Facebook Pixel, go to Settings. Here, you will get a Pixel ID. This Pixel ID can then be attached to your ShopBase online store, which would give you detailed insights on conversions, audience profile and their behaviors on your website.

B. Generate an Access Token for Facebook Pixel

Conversions API works simultaneously with Facebook Pixel to optimize the efficiency of your Facebook ads by sending events directly from server to Facebook. These server events are attached to a specific Facebook Pixel. To set it up, you need to generate an Access token for the previously created Pixel.

To generate an access token, you need to have admin access to Facebook Business Manager.

Log in to Events Manager.

Choose a specific Pixel to set up Conversions API.

Choose Settings.

Click Generate Access Token under Conversions API section.

Copy the generated Access token. You should save this access token somewhere safe, as it won't be stored on Facebook.

It is optional, but recommended, to have both Facebook Pixel ID and Access token.
