Thank you for leaving this review. I'm sorry to hear that your page was not approved, and that you didn't receive any response from Instagram regarding this. Other merchants have had success with solving this by chatting with Facebook directly, so I also recommend trying that.

I'd like to discuss this with you further, so I'm going to send you an email shortly with more details. Please reply directly back to me once you receive this so I can provide more assistance. Speak soon! - Rae, Shopify Support

Thank you for sharing this feedback. I understand your frustration with being denied from using the Instagram app. When this happens, the best course of action is to contact Instagram directly by reporting a problem through their app. This gives Instagram a chance to reply directly back to you and let you know why your store was rejected.

However, there are several other troubleshooting steps we can take, so I'm going to send you an email with more information. I look forward to speaking with you about this soon! - Rae, Shopify Support

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us!

Instagram aren't very open about their review process, however I have spoken with merchants who'd been able to find out more about why their store was rejected by contacting Facebook support. You can also always report a problem within the app.

I’ve followed up with you via email to discuss these options in more detail. I look forward to chatting soon! -Lizzy, Shopify Support

We appreciate you taking the time to share a review with us here!

The review process of products is handled by Instagram directly, and while they don't have a customer service line, you can send them a note by reporting a problem within the app. We also have a list of requirements to sell on Instagram, that you can find here (

That being said, our team works hard to improve our app functionality so we’d like to look into this further with you. I’ve reached out to you via email, hope to hear from you soon! -Lizzy, Shopify Support

Store not eligible. No idea why. No way to appeal. Totally rubbish. I have to write 100 characters though so just ignore the rest of these words.

Thank you for sharing your review with us.

I understand it can be frustrating not to be able to see the reason why your store may not have been approved. However you can report a problem within the Instagram app to request an appeal! Instagram don't often reply to these, but it can result in your store seeing an approval.

I will be reaching out to you via email as well so that we can continue to discuss your store and the options there. -Lizzy, Shopify Support

I've tried probably 30 times. & I can't get it to work..............................................

I'm sorry to hear that you've had this issue occur on multiple occasions, but we thank for you taking the time to write your review. As Instagram is the sole decision maker in this process and often do not provide clear reasons for rejections, it is difficult for Shopify to offer direct assistance or guidance on being approved on a second attempt.

That said, we have come across some workarounds that have led to success for other merchants, which I'll be able to share with you. I'll be sending you an email shortly with these potential solutions so please look out for my email and get back to me there if you have more questions. -Victor, Shopify Support

Been trying for month to connect Instagram to my shop. It's always disapproved within seconds with no explanation.

Developer reply

Thank you for providing your feedback to us and we appreciate you reaching out. This is an unfortunately common issue merchants experience when trying to connect to the Instagram sales channel and as Instagram do not provide reasoning for their decisions, it is difficult to get approved after an initial rejection.

Shopify cannot surface a reason for rejection, nor can we influence the decision in any way, however we have heard of some potential workarounds that other merchants have reported have worked for them. I'll be sending you an email shortly with details of these solutions. -Victor, Shopify Support
