Publish a Standard Email Display

How to update Pixlee display code with ESP merge tags?

This is only required for email analytics tracking.

Within the code snippet for standard email display, you MUST find and replace ALL occurrences of the following {placeholders} with the corresponding merge tag or template variable provided by your ESP:

{esp_user_id}

Replace {esp_user_id} with a merge tag or template variable that identifies each user in your mailing list.

Shopify example: {{customer.id}}.

If your ESP does not provide a suitable merge tag/template variable for this you must still remove {esp_user_id}, but it’s not necessary to replace it with anything.

{esp_campaign_id}

Replace {esp_campaign_id} with a merge tag or template variable provided by your ESP that will be a unique identifier for your specific campaign or email that is being sent out.

Shopify example: {{template.name}}

NOTE: If your ESP does not provide a suitable merge tag/template variable for this you must still remove {esp_campaign_id}, but it’s not necessary to replace it with anything.

Please contact your ESP service if you are having trouble finding the merge tags or template variables.

How to embed Pixlee display code in your triggered email template?

After finishing all steps in publishing a Product Triggered Email Display, you just need to copy and paste the following two snippets of code into your triggered email template:

Code for photo gallery

Copy and paste the provided html surrounded by the <!– Pixlee photo gallery –> comments into the loop of your email template where your abandoned cart html is rendered or the specific product html template of your ESP.

This all varies by ESP, they all do something differently, contact Pixlee support if you are having any trouble!

Code for analytics tracking

Copy and paste the provided html surrounded by the <!– Pixlee analytics tracking pixel –> comments somewhere in the body of your email template.

This is the Pixlee’s tracking pixel that allows us to track things like opens, etc. for analytics, so it is important that this code is only included once in any given email (i.e., Don’t place it inside a loop).
