The installation of the app is done automatically after adding it to your store and is pretty straightforward.

GDPR Compliance Center contains three main features:

  1. Cookie Consent Banner

  2. Cookie Declaration widget (to be used on your cookie or privacy policy page)

  3. Data Subject Requests widget (for personal data requests)

Visit our demo store to see what the banner looks like and also the cookie declaration and data subject requests widgets work on pages. If you need additional customizations beyond our in-app settings, our support team will work on basic customization requests.

The steps to follow are five and listed below.

Step 1

Go to Pandectes.io homepage and click Get started for free. Another option is to visit directly our app listing page on the Shopify app store as described in the next step.

Step 2

From the Shopify app store, click Add app and fill in your Shopify store URL. Then click the Install app to start the automatic installation.

Step 3

You are done! The application is up and running and you can see a notice, like the one presented below, from which you are informed about the current status of your cookie banner.

On the top of the dashboard, you will find a box from which you are able to Deactivate the banner or activate it again and you can directly click on the customize link to make any changes you want to the banner.

If you check your store now we will be able to see your cookie banner with the default settings about the layout and the content available on your store.

Furthermore, if you don’t feel ready to open the banner to the world yet, you can easily set it to be displayed to admin only while working on it, meaning you will be the only one to see it live.

Simply turn the “Admin mode” switch on, and you’re good to go! You can turn it off later in order to make it visible to the public.

Note: Admin mode is only available on Premium & Enterprise plan.

If you click the Deactivate button in the notice, then another notice will appear that informs you that the banner is not activated, and by clicking Activate banner you can enable the banner again.

Alternative installation method with theme app extension

Our application is compatible with Online Store 2.0. This means that you are able to install the application with another method. This is done with theme app embeds. We provide this option in the Help menu (on the top right of the app) where you can visit the Online Store 2.0 Support option.

This method follows the new way with app extension that Shopify suggests after the changes that were made to the themes. It keeps your theme code cleaner and makes the app core script load even faster. If you want to install the application based on this method then you have to do the following steps:

  1. Navigate to Online Store on the left side menu.

  2. On the themes page on the right click Customize.

  3. Open Theme settings on the bottom left and view the App embeds tab on the top right.

  4. Enable Pandectes Core app embed.

  5. Click Save to save theme changes.

  6. Make sure the switch is off (left position).

If you change the theme you will need to enable again the app extention in the new theme.
