How to add AnalyticKit to Shopify?

Adding custom JavaScript to a Shopify store involves editing your theme’s code. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you add the provided JavaScript code so that it appears on all pages of your Shopify website:

Step 1: Log in to Your Shopify Account

  1. Access your Shopify account: Go to the Shopify website and log in with your store credentials.

Step 2: Access Your Theme Editor

  1. Go to the Online Store: Navigate to the Shopify admin dashboard once logged in. From the left-hand side menu, click on “Online Store”.
  2. Edit Your Theme: Under the “Online Store” submenu, you will see a list of your themes. Find the theme you currently use and click on the “Actions” dropdown next to it. Then select “Edit code”.

Step 3: Edit the Theme Code

  1. Open the Layout File: In the theme editor, find and click on the file under the “Layout” directory. This file acts as the master layout template for your Shopify store.
  2. Locate the Closing </head> Tag: Scroll through the theme.liquid file until you find the closing </head> tag. It’s generally recommended to add JavaScript just before this tag.

Step 4: Add Your JavaScript Code

  1. Insert the JavaScript: Paste your JavaScript code directly above the closing
  2. tag. Ensure that it is correctly formatted and enclosed within <script> tags.

Step 5: Save Your Changes

  1. Save the File: After pasting your JavaScript code, click the “Save” button in the top right corner of the theme editor.

Step 6: Test the Integration

  1. Visit Your Store: Go to your store’s front end to ensure the script works as intended.
  2. Inspect the Page: Use your browser’s developer tools to inspect the page source and confirm that the JavaScript is loading on every page.

Additional Notes

  • Backup Your Theme: Before making any changes, it’s a good practice to duplicate your theme to create a backup. You can do this from the “Actions” dropdown next to your theme.
  • Theme Updates: If you update your theme in the future, you may need to re-add the JavaScript code.
  • Custom Apps: If you’re uncomfortable editing theme code, you can use a Shopify app designed to add custom JavaScript.
  • Performance Considerations: Adding too much JavaScript or poorly optimized scripts can affect your site’s load time and performance.

By following these steps, you can successfully integrate your custom JavaScript into your Shopify store. Remember to test thoroughly to ensure that the script functions correctly and does not interfere with the user experience.
