I huge waste of time. Spent the last month trying to configure this to sell on Instagram. Instagram still won't approve my store after removing all non physical products and making sure I have everything right according to their "guidelines". It seems 500 other shops are having the same issues with no fix by Facebook or Shopify.

Hi, there. I'm afraid Shopify has no control over what stores Facebook does or does now allow to sell using their platform. That being said, if you're positive that you are not in violation of their commerce policies (, then you can now appeal that decision with Instagram directly.

To do this, visit this support form: > select Instagram Shopping > I want to appeal a decision about access to Instagram Shopping > fill out the form in detail and submit. Their team will get in contact with you from there. Hope that helps! - Brie, Shopify Support

There are several reasons why this may happen, so it's important to ensure that your business meets Instagram's requirements ( for using their channel, as well as Facebook's Commerce Policies ( in regard to the types of products you're selling.

I downloaded the app to make my boutique Lasae instagram stoppable and the screen to set everything up is in another language and keeps on giving me the "internal error 500" code. and each time I would go to try again the cookie approval page is in ANOTHER language.

Hi, there. I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble setting up the app - this certainly shouldn't be the case. This sounds like a browser specific issue, so I'd suggest clearing your browser's cache and then trying again.

I'd like to help you troubleshoot this further and make sure the channel is up and running for you, so I'll follow up with you via email shortly and we can work on it together there. Talk soon! - Brie, Shopify Support

Hi, there. It sounds like your store has been in review with Instagram for an extended period of time. If this is the case, you'll want to speak to Instagram or Facebook directly, as we aren't able to troubleshoot this at Shopify.

Instagram has not provided Shopify with specific timelines as to how long a store or product can be under review for, so I would suggest contacting Instagram's support team directly by navigating in your Instagram app to Settings > Help > Report a problem.

You also need to meet all of the requirements listed here: in order to use Instagram tagging, so I'd go through that list and make sure you've completed all of those steps.

I'll reach out to you via email shortly just in case you're referring to a different issue; feel free to reply there with any further questions. - Brie, Shopify Support

La Chèvre

its been a very long time and no one got back to me about this instagram issue, every time its keep saying I'm denied. shopify worker also looked at and said they didn't see any problem. I'm wasting money on a app that's computer generating approval or denied and on ads. I'm spending more then I'm making.

Thank you for reaching out and sharing your experience with the Instagram app. I'm sorry to hear that you weren't approved to sell on Instagram, and that you never heard back from anyone about this. If you haven't done so already, I recommend appealing Instagram's decision about your account, as long as your business meets the requirements for using their channel (

If you do meet these requirements, you can start the appeal process by visiting this link (, selecting 'Instagram Shopping', and choosing the 'I want to appeal a decision about access to Instagram Shopping' selection from the drop-down menu. Please continue to fill out the form and then submit your information for further review. You can also access the link to this form from inside your Shopify admin under the 'Instagram' section.

I'll send you a follow up email in case you have any further questions about this. I look forward to speaking with you soon! - Rae, Shopify Support

Monday Casual

This app doesn't work because Instagram doesn't bother to review if stores are eligible or not. We sent our store off for review and minutes later the store was denied. Nothing at facebook happens within minutes.

Thank you for your review. Instagram has recently announced a direct way to appeal a rejection for use of their product tagging feature. If you are sure that your store is not in violation of their e-commerce policies (, then you can submit your appeal and their team will review and get back to you.

To do this, you'll visit this link: From here, select Instagram Shopping > I want to appeal a decision about access to Instagram Shopping. Next, fill out the form that appears and submit it for review.

You should also be able to get to that link through the banner message in your admin that appears when you aren't approved in the Instagram channel. Hope this helps! - Brie, Shopify Support
