STEP 2: Provide the Growlytics API Key In the Shopify App

For this step, start from the video recording or look through the step-by-step instructions below.

  1. Once you have installed the app, you will see the screen shown below. Click on the 'Connect Growlytics Account' button to continue.

  1. Enter the API key and click on the 'Connect' button.

STEP 3: Install additional scripts

After first step, you will need to add scripts in 3 different liquid template files: theme.liquid, product.liquidand collection-template.liquid.

  1. Add the code below at the end of theme.liquid template file. This will allow Growlytics to analyze visitor's behaviour on your site:

<!-- theme.liquid - Add this script at the end of theme.liquid file -->
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    let grwSyncInfo = {
      page: '{{request.page_type}}',
      cart: {{cart | json}},
      product: window.GrowlyticsInfo ? window.GrowlyticsInfo.shopifyProduct: null,
      collection: window.GrowlyticsInfo ? window.GrowlyticsInfo.shopifyCollection: null,
    {% if customer %}
        grwSyncInfo.customer = {
            id: '{{ }}', 
            info: {
            'name': '{{ }}' ? '{{}}' : null,
            'email': '{{ }}' ? '{{}}' : null,
            'mobile': '{{ }}' ? '{{}}' : null,	
            'firstName': '{{ customer.first_name }}' ? '{{customer.first_name}}' : null,
            'lastName': '{{ customer.last_name }}' ? '{{customer.last_name}}' : null,
            'totalOrders': {{ customer.orders_count }},
            'lastOrder': '{{ customer.last_order }}' ? '{{ customer.last_order }}' : null,
            'totalSpent': {{customer.total_spent }},
            'addressList': {{customer.addresses | json}}
    {% endif %}
      apiKey: '<API-KEY>',
      enabled: true,
      shopify: true,
      shopifyStore: '<store-name-goes-here>',
      webPushEnabled: true,  // Enable/disable push notifs
      serviceWorkerFile: '<service-worker-file-location-goes-here>',
      autoRequestWebPushPermission: true 
  1. Make sure you are replacing <api-key> with your actual project api key. You can find api-key in project settings.

  2. Make sure you are replacing <store-name> with your shopify store name.

  3. Make sure you are replacing the <service-worker-file-location> with your store's server location.

3. Add the code below at the end of product.liquid template file. This will allow Growlytics to track products viewed by visitors.

<!-- product.liquid - Add this script at the end of product.liquid file -->
  {%if product %}
 	let prodInfo = {{ product | json }};
  prodInfo.url = "{{ shop.secure_url }}{{ product.url }}";
	prodInfo.price = {{product.price}}/100;
  prodInfo.imageUrl = "https:{{ product.featured_image.src|img_url:'grande' }}";
    if(!window.GrowlyticsInfo) window.GrowlyticsInfo = {};
  	window.GrowlyticsInfo.shopifyProduct = prodInfo;
  {% endif %}

4. . Add the code below at the end of collection-template.liquid template file. This will allow Growlytics to track collections viewed by visitors.

<!-- collection-template.liquid - Add this script at the end of collection-template.liquid file -->
{%if collection %}
    if(!window.GrowlyticsInfo) window.GrowlyticsInfo = {};
    window.GrowlyticsInfo.shopifyCollection = {{collection|json}};
{% endif %}
