Millennials and Gen Z love Snapchat! Although Snapchat may not be the first social media platform that comes to mind when considering how to market a business, when done correctly, Snapchat advertising can be quite profitable. Snapchat is a fantastic medium to use if you're marketing to a younger audience of people under 35.
Your Snapchat Pixel, like a Facebook Pixel, is critical to the success of your ad campaigns. But before you can run Snapchat advertising on Shopify, you'll need to set up Snapchat event monitoring on your shop, just like with Facebook, Adwords, and other platforms. The Snapchat pixel will enable you to effectively find and target potential customers using Custom Audiences and will help you to track and optimize conversions when you’re advertising on Snapchat.
In this tutorial, we'll walk you through installing Snapchat pixel on Shopify the fastest way.

Once you're in, click the Apps section on the left side. Click the View More Apps in this collection button.
It will open a new tab which is the Shopify app store. Search for the Snapchat app and select the Snapchat Ads by Snap Ads.
Install the app to your Shopify website.
After you have installed the Snapchat app, you need to connect your account.

Complete your business profile. Fill out the form. Enter your business name, email, your business address, and the currency. Once you're done, click the Next button.
Next is the email verification. If you haven't verified your Snapchat email yet, then just go to your email and look for the email from Snapchat and just click the verification link. Once it's verified, you should see this green check on this part in creating your business account. . Just proceed to the next step.
The next one is to add your payment method. You can either use your Paypal account or you can use your credit card. Don't worry for Snapchat will not charge your card, this is just for verification purposes. Just proceed to the next step once you're done.

On the Pixel-only Setup, you should be able to see that a Snapchat Pixel ID was generated.
At this point, you already have the Snapchat pixel installed on your Shopify website. To verify that you have the correct account, go to your Snapchat business account and go to the Events Manager. You should see the same Snapchat pixel ID on Shopify.
If it's not the same, then just disconnect the current pixel that was installed, redo the process and make sure that you log in to the correct account.
