I get a fatal error and I am running old versions of WordPress and/or WooCommerce. What can I do?

As this is a free plugin we don’t support old versions of WordPress and WooCommerce. You will have to update your installation.

I am using an offsite payment gateway and the conversions are not being tracked. What can I do?

We don’t support if an offsite payment gateway is in use. The reason is that those cases can be complex and time consuming to solve. We don’t want to cover this for a free plugin. We do not recommend offsite payment gateways anyway. A visitor can stop the redirection manually which prevents at least some conversions to be tracked. Also offsite payment gateways are generally bad for the conversion rate.

I’ve done everything right in the test, but it still doesn’t work. What can I do?

Here is a non-exhaustive list of causes that might interfere with the plugin code.

  • Minification plugins try to minify the JavaScript code of the plugin. Not all minification plugins do this good enough and can cause problems. Turn off the JavaScript minification and try again.
  • Caching could also cause problems if caching is set too aggressively. Generally don’t ever enable HTML caching on a WooCommerce shop, as it can cause troubles with plugins that generate dynamic output.

I see issues in the backend of my shop. Admin pages get rendered weird, and popups don’t go away when I click to close them. How can I fix this?

You probably have some script or ad blocker activated. Deactivate it and the issues should go away. Usually you can disable the blocker for just that particular site (your WooCommerce back end).

Our plugin injects tracking pixels on the front end of WooCommerce shops. As a consequence scripts of our plugin have been added to some privacy filter lists. The idea is to prevent the scripts running if a shop visitor has some ad blocker enabled and wants to visit the front end of the shop. This is totally ok for visitors of the front end of the shop. But, it becomes an issue for admins of the shop who have a blocker activated in their browser and visit the backend of the shop.

Unfortunately there is no way for us to generally approve our scripts in all blockers for the WooCommerce back end.

Therefore, we recommend admins of the shop to exclude their own shop from the blocker in their browser.

Where can I report a bug or suggest improvements?

Please post your problem in the Pixel Manager for WooCommerce Support forum: Link
You can send the link to the front page of your shop too if you think it would be of help.
