Getting started with Shoppable Instagram Galleries

Your first steps to get started using our product.

1. Connect your Facebook account to the app.

a) Create a business page on Facebook.

b) Switch your personal account to a business account on Instagram.

c) Add your Instagram business account to that created business page on Facebook:

via Facebook: Add or Remove an Instagram Account From Your Facebook Page

OR via Instagram: How to Add or Change the Facebook Page Connected to Your Instagram Business Account

d) Connect your Facebook account to our marketing platform on the dashboard. Here is a detailed tutorial on how to do this.

  • Please go to the admin panel and click on Connect Facebook account.
  • Log in to your Facebook account.

2. Create your first Instagram gallery

If you have not created a gallery yet then click on the "Create gallery" link on the dashboard then tick one of the connected Instagram accounts and fill in the fields per your needs. 

3. Photo moderation 

Congrats! Now your beautiful gallery is shown in the Galleries section, so you can easily moderate photos in that created gallery and hide unnecessary ones.

4. Make the gallery shoppable by tagging products and links on photos

  • Open your gallery and click on a photo in which you want to tag products. A form will appear, where you can find a text field for tagging. Start typing your product name in it. Thereafter it displays a drop-down menu of products to choose from. Click on the necessary one and that's it! If you want to add a link then just insert a wished link instead of the product name.

5. Preview your Shop Instagram page

The Shop Instagram page with your gallery has been created successfully!

Click here to edit the page's design and see it in live view.

If you want to embed the gallery on another page, check the guide - How to embed your Instagram gallery in Shopify.

6. Add a website link to the profile

It is time to drive more traffic to your store! :) Copy the gallery page link and paste it in your Instagram profile settings, and website link section. So your visitors can directly go to the store by that link and start purchasing.
