How to setup SaleHelpr with Shopify conversions

If you have a Shopify store and you want to show the latest conversions or the conversions count of certain products that you are selling on your Shopify store, then this is the guide for you.

Connecting Shopify with SaleHelpr is a straightforward process but can be quite confusing for someone who never used Webhooks previously.

What we want to happen

Lets understand the workflow first. Here is what is going to happen in order to make this work:

  1. A Shopify order is completed/paid for

  2. Shopify sends a “message” to SaleHelpr with the details of the order

  3. SaleHelpr receives, parses and stores the “message” from Shopify

  4. Now the Notification created with SaleHelpr will show the latest conversion that happened on Shopify.

Here is how it would look like:


First off, you need to make sure you have the following steps already done:

  1. You have SaleHelpr account set up and ready to go

  2. You created your campaign for your website correctly and installed the pixel code on your website.

  3. You have a working Shopify store

How to do it

Like it is mentioned above, we are starting from the point where you already have a SaleHelpr account, a campaign ready, and the pixel code installed.

To Install a pixel code in Shopify, follow this tutorial:

For this tutorial, we are using the SaleHelpr demo account and a test Shopify store.

Create the notification

  1. Go to the campaign that you have ready

  2. Click the Create Notification button

  3. Fill out the name of your new notification and select the type as either “Latest Conversion” or “Conversions Counter” and submit.

  4. Make sure that the notification is Enabled!

Configure Shopify

Make sure that you are logged into your Shopify account first of all and then:

From the Shopify admin page, go to Settings and then access Notifications.

Scroll down to the Webhooks section and then, click the Create a webhook button.

Now you must go to the freshly created notification with SaleHelpr in the Data tab.

Now make sure to copy the Webhook Trigger URL that is shown in the picture above.

Go back to the Shopify store and paste it in the URL field.

You can now select the Event of the Webhook. More exactly, when should Shopify trigger the execution of the webhook.

In this case, I selected “Order payment” because we want to track the latest order payments with SaleHelpr.

Make sure to select the Format to JSON and click Save webhook.

Should look like this:

As you can see, now that you have this webhook set up, you can also test it out.

Click on the Send test notification button now.

Now, if we go back to the Notification from SaleHelpr and access the Data page, we will see something like this:

You will be able to see that there is a new “Conversion” registered in SaleHelpr.

If you Click to Expand then you will be able to see even more details and the caught variables, which you can use in the title or description.

Now, you can go to the Settings of the notification and configure your notification as you’d like.

Here is how I have configured it myself:

You can see that the Title is using the {city} variable from the conversion data and also that the Description is using the {name} variable.

Here is the final result, just like we wanted:

Hope you found this tutorial useful, keep in mind that this is just a test and further configurations can be done, which are totally up to you!
