Hi,

I'm trying to start using Facebook catalogs on my shop and according to their guide, I need to add microdata tags onto my product page in order for them to be able to my Facebook pixel to farm the correct information.

I did not clearly understand how to implement these tags onto my product pages.

If anyone knows how to do this properly, are can read the guide and try explaining it to me I would be grateful!

This is the facebook guide - https://www.facebook.com/business/help/1175004275966513

Thanks in advance!

Hi all,

 

Let me just bring up this topic again.

I am facing the same problem. In order to connect FB Pixel with my product catalogue, I obviosly have to add microdata tags to my products. I have no clue how to do that. Is there a plugin that can easily do that job?

Even adding some code to products.liquid according to a "how-to" posted here in the forum: (https://feedarmy.com/kb/shopify-microdata-for-google-shopping/) did not help. 

 

Any help is highly appreciated.

 

Many thanks,

PBeb

Hi all,

The first thing I would do is check whether the microdata is being populated already. Many Shopify themes have this functionality built in already. To check, use the Facebook microdata debugging tool and enter the full url of one of your products, e.g. https://website.com/collections/shirts/products/white-shirt .

If you don't see any ERRORS, you should be fine. You may see some warnings which could require fixing.

If you don't have any microdata showing, make sure you have a Facebook Pixel installed. Get one from your Facebook Ads account and add it to your theme.liquid file (Online Store > Themes > Actions > Edit Code) in between the <head> and </head> tags.

If your pixel is installed already and you're not getting any microdata in the debugger, follow the steps in this tutorial which is the easiest I could find.

Good luck, and remember to support your local developers! Reach out to one if you're not comfortable with coding.

Hi. I have a Shopify Shop and wanted to add Microdata for my Facebook Catalog. I’ve done all from the feed army guide, and it shows me 7 Warnings for the Google Structured Data and 
data validation failed for Facebook.
Also, Facebook still telling me that I have to install microdata into my website to continue the catalog set up.
Do i have to wait some hours, since I’ve done it some minutes ago.

If nothing works, I read the app flexify could help the catalog problem, but not the Pixel error thing. I appreciate any help

I am currently having the same problem. Strange though, since it was working fine since 2018 and now all of a sudden I get this error.

"

This pixel's microdata is incomplete or incorrectly formatted

To use this pixel to add or update items in your catalog, you need to install the required microdata tags on your website."

Shopify wont help and neither will face book. They have sent me to all of these links which is like asking me to go do an aerial like it is no problem at all.  LOL
