How to use Social Proofy widgets in your Shopify store?

This installation guide is applied for Dawn and other Shopify themes in Online Stores 2.0. Shopify has upgraded its theme architecture in Online Store 2.0, so you can install Social Proofy pixel code in Shopify’s Theme Editor and use all Social Proofy widgets. In this article, we’ll walk you through the step-by-step instructions to install our widgets on your store.
Visit Social Proofy demo store (password: 123456), or check our examples for inspiration to see how other Social Proofy users are customizing their widgets. If you need additional customizations beyond our app settings, our support team will work on basic customization requests.

Step 1: Open the Shopify's Theme Editor

After adding the Social Proofy app from the Shopify App Store, 5 different widgets are added to your account with their settings.

  • Installation by Social Proofy (for all themes)
  • Installation by You (for Dawn and other themes in Online Store 2.0)

Don’t worry if you don’t have a theme that supports Online 2.0, your pixel code will be added automatically after you add the Social Proofy application. Click on the app title to manage the widgets and you will be automatically redirected to the Social Proofy dashboard.

Step 2: Enable the App Embed

  • For all the widgets to work, please make sure to enable the App Embed in Shopify’s Theme Editor by choosing Theme Settings at the bottom left.
  • When the Theme Settings panel appears on the right, click on the App Embeds tab.
  • Toggle the bar to enable the Social Proofy Core Snippet, then click Save.

Important note:
Make sure to enable the Social Proofy Code Snippet before you add any widgets because it contains the code needed and shared by multiple widgets (e.g. it controls which Latest Conversions show up on the widgets). In other words, our widgets are dependent on the Social Proofy Code Snippet, so you need to enable it in order for the widgets to function correctly.

Step 3: Install the widgets by using Social Proofy

  • End Date: When you activate the counter, the countdown starts until the date you set in this field.
