Remove the Pinterest tag from a Shopify site

Clock iconLimited availability

The Pinterest app for Shopify isn't available to all advertisers yet. If you don't see the Pinterest app in your Shopify store, you can add the Pinterest Tag manually

 

If you installed the Pinterest tag yourself and want to use the Shopify app instead, you should remove any tags you installed before setting up Shopify.

Make sure to remove the base code, checkout code, and addtocart code.

Remove base code

  1. From your Shopify admin, click Online Store, and then Themes
  2. Navigate to the theme you want to edit and click Actions then Edit Code
  3. Click theme.liquid
  4. Scroll until you see “ </head>” and find this code (you can also command+F for “pintrk” to locate it): 
    <script type="text/javascript">
    !function(e){if(!window.pintrk){window.pintrk=function()
    {window.pintrk.queue.push(Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments))};var
    n=window.pintrk;n.queue=[],n.version="3.0";var
    t=document.createElement("script");t.async=!0,t.src=e;var
    r=document.getElementsByTagName("script")[0];r.parentNode.insertBefore(t,r)}}
    ("https://s.pinimg.com/ct/core.js"); 
    
    pintrk('load','YOUR_TAG_ID', { em: '{{ customer.email }}', });
    pintrk('page');
    </script> 
    <noscript> 
    <img height="1" width="1" style="display:none;" alt=""
    src="https://ct.pinterest.com/v3/?tid=YOUR_TAG_ID&noscript=1" /> 
    </noscript>

Remove checkout code

  1. From your Shopify admin, click Settings and then click Checkout
  2. In the “Order processing” section, find the “Additional scripts ” text box
  3. Find the following tracking code in the text box; if there is more code in this box, make sure to only remove this code:
    {% if first_time_accessed %}
    <script type="text/javascript">
    !function(e){if(!window.pintrk){window.pintrk=function()
    {window.pintrk.queue.push(Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments))};var
    n=window.pintrk;n.queue=[],n.version="3.0";var
    t=document.createElement("script");t.async=!0,t.src=e;var
    r=document.getElementsByTagName("script")[0];r.parentNode.insertBefore(t,r)}}
    ("https://s.pinimg.com/ct/core.js");
    
    pintrk('load','YOUR_TAG_ID', { em: '{{ customer.email }}', }); 
    pintrk('page'); 
    </script> 
    <noscript> 
    <img height="1" width="1" style="display:none;" alt=""
    src="https://ct.pinterest.com/v3/?tid=YOUR_TAG_ID&noscript=1" /> 
    </noscript>
    
    <script>
    pintrk('track', 'checkout',{
    value: {{ total_price | money_without_currency }}, 
    currency: '{{ currency }}',
    order_quantity: 1,
    order_id: {{ checkout.id }}
    });
    </script>
    <noscript>
    <img height="1" width="1" style="display:none;" alt=""
    src="https://ct.pinterest.com/v3/?tid=YOUR_TAG_ID&event=checkout&noscript=1"/>
    </noscript>
    {% endif %}
    

Remove addtocart code

You may know exactly where your addtocart event tag already is. If not, here’s some guidance to find it:

  1. From your Shopify admin, click Online Store, and then Themes
  2. In the current theme you’re using,  click Actions then Edit Code
  3. Under ‘Templates’ look for code files named “product.liquid”, or “product-template.liquid”, or “product-form.liquid” and open it. Note that this may vary depending on the theme you have installed, but it’s most common to see add to cart button code in the products.liquid file or equivalent.
  4. Search the file for "addtocart" by pressing and holding command+f on Mac or control+f on PC.
  5. Find and remove the following code - it should be at the ending caret of the <button> or <input> element onclick="pintrk('track', 'addtocart');" 
  6. Click Save in the top right corner.
