Darwin Analytics and Shopify Step-by-step Installation Guide

Before You Start

The Darwin tracking code can be installed on your Shopify theme but you can only track your Storefront and the "Order Confirmation" page because Shopify's default checkout pages block third-party scripts.

Get Tracking Code

Login to Darwin's Dashboard and visit "Tracking Code" in the navigation.

Tracking Code

Copy the tracking code HTML that you'll find there.

Edit Code

Under the "Layout" section, select "theme.liquid" file.

Scroll down the page until you find the following tag: </head>.

Some themes will use {/head}, [/header], or other variations of [/head]. These will work the same way.

The Darwin tracking code should now be installed on your Storefront.

If you want to track order confirmations, you will need to install the tracking code in another section.
