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!
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.
im really struggling with the same problem and every solution i try and find isnt a solution at all it just tells me to do something i have already done and its really starting to bum me out it still says not ready on my facebook pixels when trying to create a cataloge and i need to add microdata on my website but have no clue what to doooo!!!
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.
