Integration Guide: Launching your First Price Test on your Non-Shopify Plus Store

Learn how to integrate your Non-Shopify Plus store with Intelligems for a Pricing Test using duplicate products.

In this article:

Prerequisites: Download the Intelligems App and approve billing.

If you have not already done so, please download the Intelligems app from the Shopify app store and approve billing in the Settings section in the app.

❗If you have chosen to have Intelligems complete the integration, many of these steps will be done on your behalf. Feel free to jump over to this article for an overview of the onboarding process and next steps.

Step 1: Add Intelligems JavaScript.

Add Intelligems JavaScript as a source into your theme.liquid file.

  <script src="<your_customer_id>.js"></script>

Your individual script tag is located on the settings page in the Intelligems App.

❗If your store does not have a checkout.liquid file, you can request one from Shopify.

Step 2: Set up your test.

If you have not already done so, the next step in the integration is to set up your first Pricing Test. Check out our guide on doing this here. Don't worry - it won't be going live right away and you can always make edits before launching it! 

When you create your test, Intelligems will generate duplicate products in your Shopify store in order to be able to display the correct test group price(s). Intelligems generated products will be tagged with price_test. These products will be archived when you end your experiment.

❗Intelligems uses product duplication to run price tests on Non-Shopify Plus stores. Not an option for you? Contact us at or through the support bot in our app.

Step 3: Tag product prices.

The next step to start a Pricing Test is to make sure the Intelligems app is aware of all the places where prices appear in your store by confirming that all product price and compare-at-price locations be tagged - these tags allow the app to dynamically modify the price for each test group. The easiest way to do this is using the Integration Widget, which we'll walk you through step-by-step in this article.

Step 4: Configure duplicate products.

As mentioned above, when you create and save a new Pricing Test in the Intelligems app, we will duplicate selected products in your non-Shopify Plus store. Please refer to the guide here on how to configure these duplicate products in Shopify. Duplicate products will be activated when you start your test, but you may need to do so beforehand to complete some of the configuration steps. 

Step 5: QA your integration.

After you have completed all previous integration steps, go through your store using Preview Mode in the Integration Widget (see more on how to start preview mode here) and make sure everything looks correct. Follow our QA checklist here!

Step 6: Publish your theme changes and start your first test.

Once you have verified Intelligems is fully integrated, you can publish your theme changes (if you haven't already) and start your test from the Intelligems App! Check out our step-by-step guide on starting your test here
