Start selling more with Instagram Shoppable Posts

Lately more and more Instagram profiles have started using Instagram shoppable posts for selling their products directly in the app. There used to be only 2 options for businesses that wanted to share links to their products and direct their followers to other websites: placing clickable links in Instagram stories or putting them in the bio temporarily. But with this new addition on shoppable posts you can significantly increase your revenue by tagging your products in photos that showcase them and placing a link to the product page right there in your post.

Requirements for creating Instagram shoppable posts

instUnfortunately, not every business account can use the shoppable feature. First of all, your business needs to be located in one of the 46 countries where the function is supported, your products need to be in line with Instagram’s merchant agreement and commerce policies, and you also need to have a business Instagram account, luckily, it is very easy to switch. You also need to have a phone that runs either on Android or iOS and have the latest version of the app downloaded. The last requirement is to connect your Instagram profile to a Facebook product catalog.
