  3. Company Policies Preventing Connection to Our Shopify App.

If you find yourself in one of these scenarios, we recommend collaborating with our support team to obtain the necessary security information for Roster installation on your store. Stores that do not install our Shopify app may miss out on several integrated features.

Manual Shopify Referral Tracking Installation Instructions

*Note: When following these steps be sure to begin by referencing the instructions outlined in the main article.

Step 1: Adding the Click Tracking Script

  1. Access your Shopify store admin portal and navigate to Online Store > Themes > Edit code.

  2. Open the "theme.liquid" file to edit the code.

  3. Follow the instructions in Step 2 of the main article to embed the tracking script just before the closing </head> tag in your HTML:

    <!-- Roster -->
    <script async type="application/javascript" src=""></script>

IMPORTANT: Replace "ACCESS_TOKEN" with your public access token, as created in Step 1 of the main article.

Step 2: Integrating Order Tracking

  1. Go to Settings > Checkout in your Shopify store.

  2. Scroll down to the Order processing section and paste the following code into the Additional scripts box. Make sure to replace the "ACCESS_TOKEN" placeholder with your public access token from Step 1 of the main article:

<script type="application/javascript">
function submitOrder() {

discountCodes: [{% for discount in order.discount_applications %} "{{ discount.title }}", {% endfor %}],
currency: "{{ shop.currency }}",
subtotalPrice: {{ order.subtotal_price | money_without_currency }},
totalPrice: {{ order.total_price | money_without_currency }},
firstName: "{{ order.customer.first_name }}",
lastName: "{{ order.customer.last_name }}",
