Shopping tags on Instagram. How to use them?

Shopping on Instagram

insIn the US Instagram launched Shopping Tags function on Instagram. This is a new tool that allows you to make purchases directly to Instagram without leaving the application

Appearance of the first trade tags (shopping tags) in the Instagram occurred back in 2016. The peculiarity of this tool is that now the seller has the opportunity to mark any product in his photo as he marks the average user. An interested photo of a potential buyer, using a shopping tag to place an order, can, with a single click, go to the page of an online store with a picture of the goods.
