About Announcement Bar with Stories

Everyone interacts with Instagram Stories and Highlights. Everyone discovers brands through their smartphone. Although today’s eCommerce stores are optimized for mobile, they are not built to what people are used to—social media behavior and social commerce.

Storypop's announcement bar bridges the gap.

It lets you beautifully announce and communicate multiple messages to your audience, including discount codes and free shipping, convert more visitors to new customers, and build a stronger connection with the existing ones. Say bye-bye to your old-fashioned announcement bar.

You can now create visual stories to announce your messages above your navigation menu—similar to Instagram Highlights.

Storypop has great features to help promote and showcase our products and the support is one of a kind great

Softlens Queen

useless apps, it's not change your instagram stories with shopable link but they only appearing an image to your website and claim as stories like IG stories. 5 minutes installed and delete. i thinking about the developer should be creative to making an apps with excellent feature, it's totally useless...I'm afraid they only need our data and collect our data with connection to Instagram or facebook.

Hello,

I'm really sorry that Storypop didn't meet your expectations.

Storypop is a widget that you can add it on your store and substitute your announcement bar with visual Instagram-like content.

Think of it like Instagram Highlights, but for your store.
For example, you can create Highlights within your store for communicating:
- your summer sale (30% off)
- Covid-19 shipping updates
- Reviews and Testimonials

We're not an app that you can use to add a shoppable link to your Stories directly in the Instagram app—this is not allowed by Instagram.

Regarding our Instagram and Facebook integration, we're officially approved by Facebook and therefore we respect all privacy and data regulations. The reason we asked you to connect your Instagram account is because we fetch once per day your Instagram Stories and show them into your store—similar to Instagram Feed apps, but for Stories.

Once again, I'd like to apologize for the confusion.

Just installed it. Works as promised displays my Instagram stories perfectly. Also, Product Stories is an awesome feature, but I’d like to see more features about it (eg. create product videos out-of-the-box)

Also, their App support was super-fast when I had a question and they also provided an analytical FAQ page that helped a lot.
