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

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

I was able to connect my store with FB without any issues, but when I tried to connect my store with IG it got rejected immediately. Please fix this.

Thank you very much for your feedback here.

While I know it can be frustrating to receive approval on one channel and not the other, Facebook and Instagram have separate review processes. This means that it is possible to not be able to sell on both.

I’ve reached out to you via email so that we can look over your account together to see what options there might be for requesting a re-review. Hope to hear from you soon! -Lizzy, Shopify Support

Update: I had someone from Shopify message me and assist with getting this app to work. From memory, I had to send multiple emails to Instagram to get my products approved. Once they finally approved this app works really well. Tags the products, and no issues. Thank you for your assistance.

Doesn't work, waste of time. Support doesn't help either. Can't tag products, Instagram won't approve the store, however, does not give any information on why or how to change any problems. Very disappointed.

Thank you for taking the time to share this review with us.

I completely understand how it can be disappointing when an application doesn't work as expected. However there are sometimes ways to get a second review of your account from Instagram. You can do this by reporting a problem within the Instagram app.

I'll also be following up with you via email so that we can continue to chat about your business! -Lizzy, Shopify Support

Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. I can understand this circumstance is frustrating, as I know how key of a role social media plays in marketing.

Instagram's approval process is entirely controlled by Instagram. Currently, there isn't a specific appeal process to follow if your store has been marked as ineligible by. That being said, some merchants have found success by "reporting a problem" from within the Instagram app. Have you tried this?

I've gone ahead and sent you an email so that we can continue to discuss this process in more detail. Hope to hear from you soon. - Ryder, Shopify Support


cant get product tagging its waste of time installing this app false advertisement? did anyone get this app to do what the description says it does?

Thank you very much for this review! There are a few requirements you'll need to make sure your store matches up with, along with Instagram's review process, before you'll see the option to tag. (

I would like to work with you to see what steps we can take to help get this app working for you! I’ve reached out to you via email, and look forward to continuing our conversation soon. -Lizzy, Shopify Support


all good awesome app so far I have gone through . i recommend you guys to use this app ...............................

My IG was denied without any clear reason, even though my FB catalogue is up and working fine. Judging from others it’s a waste of time to report as neither Shopify or IG want to resolve this issue, even though it is clear from all the negative reviews here that it’s a wide range problem and not one we can fix! Also there is no clear way to uninstall this app.

Thank you for sharing this feedback. As Instagram and Facebook do use a different review process some accounts can see an approval on one, but not the other. Often though, if you're able to contact Instagram for a re-review of the account you can see an approval. One way to do this is by reporting a problem within the Instagram app!

If you'd like to uninstall the Instagram sales channel you can do so by going to Settings>Sales Channels and clicking on the little trash can icon to the right. This page here has some more details on that (!

I’ve reached out to you via email to discuss your account connection, hope to hear from you soon! -Lizzy, Shopify Support
