What is an Instagram Shop?

First off, what exactly is an Instagram Shop? Well, that's a great question. An Instagram Shop essentially acts as a virtual storefront for your business. That way, users can browse your products directly from Instagram and checkout without ever having to leave the app. If that sounds good, let's set this feature up. 

Are you Eligible for an Instagram Shop?

Now, the first step is to see if you're eligible to have an Instagram Shop. In order to set one up: 

  1. Your business must be located in a supported market. 

  2. Your business has to have an eligible product.

  3. Your business complies with Instagram's Merchant Agreement and commerce policies.

  4. And finally, your business owns a website domain that has your product assortment. 

Oh, and creators, this feature is only available for business accounts, so you'll need to make sure that you're using a business account on Instagram before you can access it.

Step #2: Upload Your Product Catalogue

Now we need to upload your product catalogue. And there's two ways to go about this.

The first is more of the do-it-yourself method found within the Facebook Business Manager using the Catalog Manager. The second way is by using an e-commerce platform partner. So, if your website is currently using something like, say, Shopify or BigCommerce to sell your products, then this is typically the most popular way to upload your catalogue.

Uploading Your Catalogue Using Shopify or BigCommerce

If you're using an e-commerce platform partner, you'll want to follow this flow.

  • Log into your Facebook business account, head to Commerce Manager and select Catalog. 

  • Next, select “Data Sources” and from there, “Add Items”, then “Partner Platform”. Hit “Next” and you should see a list of e-commerce platform partners. 

Go ahead and select yours, and we'll guide you through the remaining steps.
