By using Tracking ID, you will track the number of clicks on an element that you set up PageFly events for.
The Tracking ID will appear on the Cart page as the order item ID and in the Order section in Shopify Admin. To explain this appearance is because it helps for the Analytics function works well, it does not affect anything in your store.
