Facebook Pixel is an analytics tool that lets you track visitors' conversion points in your site for Facebook Ads. We make the installation incredibly simple! You only need to paste your Facebook Pixel ID into the settings field, and that's it. Normally, the code can be quite difficult to install, as it requires a lot of custom code for all the different events (pageview, signup, view cart, purchase, etc).
The Facebook Pixel integration is a Premium feature available in Pro and VIP plans.
