About Instagram channel

Sell on Instagram

Give shoppers a way to buy from your store on Instagram by tagging products in your photos. Use the Instagram channel to connect your Facebook products to your Instagram account. Tag up to 5 products per photo and let customers check out without leaving Instagram. Once you’ve tagged products in 9 posts, a shop tab will show up on your profile that lets shoppers browse your shoppable posts—all in one place. You can also choose to further the reach of your tagged posts using Instagram's sponsored post ads.

With Shopify and the Instagram channel, you can:

  • add Instagram product tagging to your Instagram business profile
  • connect your store’s Facebook product catalog to your Instagram business profile
  • add shopping tags to your posts & stories and let customers purchase from your online store without leaving Instagram.
  • fulfill orders placed on Instagram

The same is happening to us!!! It seems that I am not the only one with this issue, out of nowhere product tagging has been removed from my account and I can no longer tag products. I have contacted them but heard nothing- very disappointed as a large amount of our custom was from instagram

Thanks for sharing your feedback and I'm sorry that your product tagging has been removed from your profile. Product tagging eligibility on Instagram does have to be resolved by Instagram Support themselves, but given how important this channel is for your business I’ve sent out to an email to you to see how we can help. - JP, Shopify Support
