Meta Pixel

Track Checkout conversions in Meta Business Suite using Fundraise Up’s integration with Meta Pixel.

The Meta Pixel is a snippet of JavaScript code that allows you to track visitor activity on your website. It works by loading a small library of functions which you can use whenever a site visitor takes an action (called an event) that you want to track (called a conversion). Tracked conversions appear in Meta Ads Manager where they can be used to measure the effectiveness of your ads, to define custom audiences for ad targeting, and to analyze that effectiveness of your website's conversion funnels.

By default, Fundraise Up sends Checkout events to the Meta Pixel if it is installed on your website. The settings for Meta Pixel are managed from the Marketing pixels page in the Dashboard.

Events

Fundraise Up sends the following events to Meta Pixel:

  • Checkout opened: Fired whenever Checkout is opened. Triggers the Meta event, Initiate Checkout
  • Donation: Fires at the point of conversion for one-time and recurring donations. Triggers the Meta event, Donate, and sends values for content_ids, content_name, value, and predicted_ltv parameters.
  • One-time donation: Fires for one-time donation conversions and includes parameters like donation amount and currency in the payload. Triggers the Meta event, Purchase and sends a value for the content_type parameter.
  • Recurring donation: Fires for recurring donation conversions and includes parameters like donation amount, currency, and lifetime value. Triggers the Meta event, Subscribe.

Example payload: Purchase

Value 107 The donation amount including transaction fees
currency USD The currency used at checkout
content_ids ["FUNCPJTZZQR","DonateNow"] The Checkout ID and Checkout URL for the Campaign in Fundraise Up
content_type product The default content type for the Purchase event
