Why should I install this now?
Even if you do not currently run ads, the Pixel will begin to collect data which will allow you to then retarget and reach TikTok users who are interested in your products. Also, only integration users will have pre-general release access to some of our upcoming visibility tools. 

TikTok Pixel: 

What events does the TikTok Pixel on OpenCart support?
The developer-mode pixel automatically installed during the TikTok integration set-up supports View Content, Start Checkout, Add to Cart, and Purchase.

What's Advanced Matching?
Advanced Matching is an upgrade to the TikTok Pixel that allows you to send privacy-safe hashed customer information (email addresses and phone numbers) to increase the match rate between TikTok ad clicks (and at a later date views) and conversions that happen on your website.

How can I create ads on TikTok? 
You may create ads on TikTok Ads Manager and/or via our TikTok integration (for a conversion campaign). For access to all other objectives (such as reach, traffic, app installs, video views, and lead generation), please use TikTok Ads Manager. See how to choose the right objective here.
