What is this?
Apple has announced changes with iOS 14 that will impact how we receive and process conversion events from tools like the Facebook pixel. Businesses that optimize, target, and report on web conversion events such as leads, purchases, and others from any of Facebook’s tools, will be affected.
With iOS 14, Apple’s policy will prohibit certain data collection and sharing unless users opt-in to tracking via a prompt. As many users are expected to opt-out of tracking, ad personalization and performance reporting will be limited for web conversion events.
In response to these changes, we will be implementing an extra step in our onboarding processes to help mitigate the effects of Apple’s new policy.
How Can I Prepare?
If you plan to deliver ads optimized for conversion events that occur on your business’s website like leads or purchases:
- Make sure you have a working and active Facebook Business Manager account. This can be checked by going here.
- The domain of the website in question must be verified inside Facebook’s Business Manager backend.
- The verified domain must give "partner-level" access to Vendasta's Business Manager ID.
Verify The Domain On Facebook
The verification process can be technically intensive, so Facebook has created a guide on how to verify a domain step-by-step. You can view this guide here.
We've also created a step-by-step video guide to verify your WordPress domain in Facebook Manager:
And a step-by-step video guide to verify your Shopify:
And a step-by-step video guide to verify your Wix:
If you would prefer us to verify the domain, we can do so. We will start by sending a small snippet of code that needs to be placed in the <head> of the website, similar to the installation of a Google Tag Manager. Our team will take it from there!

When policy changes that affect our processes and fulfillment of digital ads arise, we will provide updates and additional resources to support you and your clients.
In the meanwhile, domain verification will be added to our onboarding process. This will allow us to track and optimize conversions using Facebook’s Pixel, accurately share ROI, and other important information.
