The following article is targeted at Shopify merchants that are using the GDPR Compliance Center by Pandectes app to run their cookie banner and that also use or want to use Elevar Tagging and Tracking Management .

Elevar will make sure that all the tags of your Google Tag Manager container have been properly configured to fire only after the visitors of your store have consented and given the right permissions.

Here’s how to configure the cookie banner in the GDPR Compliance Center:

Open the GDPR Compliance App and follow the next steps.

  1. From the Dashboard, click on the Settings link to navigate to the Settings page.

  2. On the Settings page, open the Banner Settings.

  3. Under the Behavior tag, look for the Banner type/Consent Mode section. Make sure to select one of the options that will guarantee that all but necessary cookies are blocked when a visitor comes to your store. Select any of the following:

    1. Accept only

    2. Accept/Decline

    3. Preferences (make sure the Strict policy checkbox below is also checked)

  4. Click on the Save button.

Whenever a new visitor comes to your store, the cookie banner will initialize the GTM container with the proper permissions to stay in compliance! When the visitor eventually takes an action on the banner, it will make sure to update the GTM Container to apply the new permissions for the tags to fire.


Note: Please make sure that you have not turned on the Google Consent Mode option under Integrations inside our app Settings.
