How to Disable Pinterest Pixel in Shopify

Learn how to disable the Pinterest Pixel in Shopify


If you are launching the Pinterest Event Tracking via Elevar then you must delete the Pinterest Sales Channel from your Shopify Store to remove the native Pixel Tracking.

Pinterest Sales Channel does not allow you to separate use of the Catalog vs the Pixel in the app. You can either use another software for your Pinterest Feed Management like GoDataFeed or continue to use the native app for your Pinterest Pixel tracking.
