  1. ViewContent
  2. AddToCart
  3. InitiateCheckout
  4. AddPaymentInfo
  5. Purchase
  6. Search

If you want to add the remaining standard events i.e Lead, CompleteRegistration, AddToWishlist, you will have to add the events code manually in Additional Scripts.

To verify if the pixel is working successfully, install Facebook Pixel Helper chrome extension. Open your website in a new tab. If the pixel is added correctly, the pixel helper icon will display which pixels are firing on your site.

To verify the standard event pixels, view a product on your store, click on add to cart button and see the pixel helper notifications.

Finally, your pixel data will start appearing in your ads manager.
