How to Add Cookie Banner on Shopify Website

Welcome to CookieYes! This guide will walk you through how you can install a cookie banner on your Shopify website. A cookie banner will help your website stay compliant with privacy laws like the GDPR and ePrivacy Directive. 

In case you have already signed up on CookieYes, without taking any action on the initial setup screens, head to the CookieYes Dashboard. 

  • To customize the cookie banner, select the Cookie Banner from the top navigation panel.
  • To get the banner installation code, head to Site Settings and click on the Get Installation Code button on the right side of the URL. 
  • Now click on Copy code button to get the CookieYes installation code.

Note: You can share the code with a developer or your team by clicking on Send code to Developer link. Enter the email address and then click on Send Instructions. The recipient will get the code and instructions via email.
