The Big Deal for Advertisers

In the spring of 2021, Apple released its iOS 14.5 update. With it came a new privacy tool that would be a massive thorn in the side of businesses advertising on Facebook. This update would make it more difficult for Facebook’s tracking pixel to follow customers online. Facebook, like a lot of sites, uses cookies in your browser to get a glimpse at what your activity looks like around the web. This data helps Facebook give advertisers better tools for targeting the right people, which ultimately means better performing ad campaigns. After all, scaling your business with Facebook Ads requires targeting the right people, not the most. But, this was all subject to change once Apple rolled out their iOS update.

Apple iPhone Users are the Difference

With the release of iOS 14.5, Apple required apps to ask iPhone users for permission if they wanted to track them across apps and websites from other companies. Users could now opt-out of having their data collected.

iOS Update Privacy Controls

That presents a challenge for advertisers because, depending on their audiences, this could make their Facebook Ad conversion data incomplete. Not great when there’s a significant investment on the line. Imagine spending $1,000 on a Facebook Ads campaign and having no idea if those ads are converting. You need to know what’s happening with your ad dollars to get the complete picture. Having incomplete data is like the Mona Lisa painting without the face.

But there is a silver lining. Facebook obviously wants advertisers to remain on the platform considering ad revenue (especially from mobile users) is how Facebook earns most of its profits. Over 98% of Facebook users worldwide access Facebook via a mobile device. Over 80% of Facebook users access it exclusively on a mobile device. So it’s more important than ever to have as many tools available to get the most out of your campaigns. There has to be a way for advertising platforms to provide advertisers with information on how users are interacting with their ads. That’s why we’re thrilled that Facebook’s Conversion API integrates with SamCart.

Facebook’s Conversions API Puts Power in Your Hands

Conversions API lets your SamCart account talk directly with Facebook Ads. This lets you know if your ads are converting even if iOS users opted out of tracking. Facebook still gets notified of every sale and product purchased on your account. How? SamCart sends that sales data directly from our servers back to your Facebook Ads account—all while staying compliant with privacy regulations.
