Hi Elias, 

 

I have followed the steps but i do not see the "DNS settings" button at the top of the page after clicking on manage. 

 

Can you help?

Hey, @ForgeTHESTRONG.

Thank you for sharing the screenshots!

I understand you're looking to verify your domain with Facebook and all 3 of their methods are available through Shopify. Though you only need to verify using one method, I wouldn't recommend the HTML file upload method, as this method can be difficult and confusing to set up. I'd recommend using the DNS verification or Meta-tag Verification, as both can be easily set up in a couple of steps. 

1. DNS verification (for Shopify-purchased domains)

Since you've already located the DNS Settings for your Shopify-purchased domain, I'll start with this one and share screenshots to assist you with this. Simply add a custom record and select TXT record, enter '@' for the Name and paste Facebook's TXT record on to the TXT Value field. Once that's done, you can go back and click the Verify button in your Facebook Business settings. 

For third-party domains, you can add Facebook's TXT record to the DNS settings through your domain registrar. This is a similar process to connecting your existing domain to Shopify, where you're adding Shopify's record to the DNS settings of your domain registrar.   

2. Meta-tag Verification

The Meta-tag Verification is also a simple copy and paste procedure. However, the meta-tag is pasted into your theme's code, which is located under 'Online store > Themes > Actions > Edit code'. From there, look for the theme.liquid file (in the Layout folder) and paste the meta-tag on any empty line after the opening <head> tag. Though you can paste this on any empty line after the opening <head> tag, it's important to make sure that you're also pasting it before the closing </head> tag. If you'd like to reference a step-by-step guide for this process, it's like adding a domain property and verifying your site with Google.

3. HTML file upload

Though this step isn't something I'd recommend, it's possible to upload files to your website on Shopify. While uploading the file is relatively easy, the tricky part is getting a file pathway that Facebook (or Google) accepts for verifying the domain.

Let me know if this is able to help you verify your domain?

Hi, @carris_layting.

Welcome to the thread!

You're definitely in the right place. However, to clarify, the DNS settings is only available on Shopify-purchased domains. While Shopify-managed domains include both, purchased and account-bound domains, the one bound to the account (carrislabelle.myshopify.com) does not have DNS Settings.

For third-party domains (carrislabelle.com), the DNS settings is accessed through your domain provider's portal/registrar. This step is like adding Shopify's DNS record to your domain registrar, where you've connected your existing domain to Shopify.

Are you also trying to verify your domain with Facebook? If so, I've shared some steps on the DNS verification and Meta-tag Verification methods in an earlier post. 

Let me know if you've had a chance to take a look at my previous post?

I am starting on Shopify. I can't believe the help is so bad. This is a bad start. Hope it gets better.

Hi Elias,

As with most people on here, I have tried to follow the TXT instructions to verify domain for FB. I did this last week on 17.03.21 and when I tried to verify on facebook today, that is, 23.03.21, it says it found no DNS entries. I have a shopify owned domain and thought this would be the easiest way to go about this. Is there a chance this didnt happen because I didn't edit the name section with '@'? I feel its improbable but not sure what else could be the reason, though I have just now copied and pasted the matter again under TXT value on shopify and changed name to @.

So if I have a "managed domain" from Shopify...there are no DNS settings.

So how can I verify my business with facebook and instagram if I do not have access to these settings?
