Have you seen accounts on Instagram tagging their products with links to purchase right in the post? That’s the power of using Shopify as your e-commerce platform!
There are many benefits to using Shopify, but this is definitely one of my faves.
I love being able to post pictures of my products on my feed and in my stories and have a clickable link for my customers to pop over to my website and buy immediately!
If you already have a Shopify site, today I’ll show you the steps to link everything together so you’re able to start tagging your handmade products!
1. Create an IG profile
a. Switch it to a business account
2. Create a FB business page
a. Link the FB page and IG account together
3. In Shopify, add a couple of new sales channels - Facebook Shop and Instagram
a. For the Facebook Shop, create a catalog of products you want to display on your Facebook page and that are available to tag in Instagram
4. In Instagram, go to Settings - Business - Shopping and make sure it’s linked to your Facebook Page
5. In newsfeed posts, once you get to the last step when you enter the caption, there will be a “Tag Products” button. Just hit that to tag a product from your store.
