How to Install a Privy Pop Up on Shopify

Install Privy on Shopify so you can easily create a call-to-action in capturing email addresses of your visitors on your Shopify Website.


A big part of any marketing campaign should be your email activity. Maximizing the size of your email list means you’ll have a wider list of customers to market to. Privy provides your store with a targeted, customized email signup popup. While you may be reluctant to add popups to your store, when done well and targeted at the right customers, an email registration popup like this can perform well.


Privy allows you to trigger popups based on certain user actions, offer discount codes and even target only certain visitors. So let us use Privy in the run-up in building your email list.


Before we start, you need have an account in Privy first and you need to have a pop-up campaign setup. If you haven’t done it yet, then, you might want to do it first. We have a tutorial for that.

To Verify if Pop-up Campaign is working

On my end, I have my Shopify store opened. This was opened before Privy was installed. Now I will open this page on a private window. As you can see that I have 2 hanging tabs. One is located on the top left of the Page and the other one is located on the Top Right.

I have set it in a way that it will trigger if you have scrolled 50% of the page. The pop-up will also trigger when you click the tab. Each of my tabs has a corresponding campaign. You can place as many campaigns on your website. Just make sure that you won’t be blocking any links or feature that your site have.


Remove Privy on your Shopify Website

If it will come a time that you would want to remove your pop-up campaigns on Privy because you want to switch to a different company, then all you need is to uninstall Privy


To uninstall privy:

1. On your Shopify Admin Page, click the “Apps” section located on the left side.


2. Click the “Trash” button inline with Privy.


3. Although it is optional, I recommend that you give them a feedback before you completely uninstall them. Then, click the red “Uninstall” button to completely uninstall it.
