Step 5: Remove Previous Bing Tracking

Remove any previous Bing tracking. This could be a hardcoded script in your Shopify theme or Checkout Settings, or a third party app.

Step 6: Create an Event-based Conversion Goal in Microsoft Ads

Even though we are now sending purchase events to Bing Ads, we still have to tell Microsoft about this.

In Microsoft Ads, go to Tools > Conversion Goals.

Click Create Conversion Goal.

For Conversion Goal, select Website.

For Conversion Goal Type, select Purchase > then Event.

In the Conversion Goal Details, title your goal Purchase or some variation > Set revenue = conversion action value may vary.

πŸ‘

Note: The value under "revenue" can be either 0 or 1 depending on what you'd like to send when there's no revenue.

Under Install event tag Select Manual installation and click Next

Under Set Up Tagging, select Yes > Select Save & Next.

On the Install event tag page, under Custom event parameters add an Action of "purchase" and a Category of "checkout".

Under When do you want to track this event, select Track event on inline action.

Select Save & next

And that's it!
