In addition to tracking your website visitors, Facebook pixel lets you track nine different “Standard Events” that people make on your website.

  1. View Content
  2. Search
  3. Add-to-cart
  4. Add-to-wishlist
  5. Initiate checkout
  6. Add payment into
  7. Make purchase
  8. Lead
  9. Complete Registration

If you want to track any of these Standard Events, as you stated “Add-to-cart” you’ll need to add some additional code to your website’s header section, just above the </head> tag.
Your website’s original code: Paste the Facebook pixel code between the <head> and </head> tags of your web page.
Your Facebook pixel base code: what you installed in the previous step of this guide
Your standard event code: Within your Facebook pixel code, above the </script> tag, paste the Standard Event code. You’ll need to add the Standard Event’s code to every page you want to track.


AddToCart either on a new page load or on the click of an Add To Cart button. There are multiple ways to handle clicks on buttons.
Here’s how the code will look:

<!-- Somewhere there is a button that performs Add to Cart -->
<button id="addToCartButton">Add To Cart</button>

<!-- Add Pixel Events to the button's click handler -->
<script type="text/javascript">
var button = document.getElementById('addToCartButton');
function() { 
fbq('track', 'AddToCart', {
content_name: 'Really Fast Running Shoes', 
content_category: 'Apparel & Accessories > Shoes',
content_ids: ['1234'],
content_type: 'product',
value: 4.99,
currency: 'USD' 

So please check if the code has been installed at standard event way on your website.
