This script will look for the presence of a specific conversion tracking cookie.

Once the Order Status page (i.e., your checkout confirmation page) from Shopify loads, the tracking beacon will make a request back to Unbounce’s servers. The result is that the conversion count in the corresponding Page Overview will increment by 1.

Note:

For example, if your Unbounce landing page URL is my.landingpage.io, then your Shopify confirmation page must exist on the same root domain, such as www.landingpage.io. The root domains for the Shopify Order Confirmation page and the Unbounce page must match in order for this external conversion tracking script to work.
