Being one of the most popular eCommerce platforms all over the world, Shopify has helped a vast number of individuals to start their own online store and make money through the internet. On the other hand, Instagram added some features helping users create a shoppable feed and sell products without using any third-parties or websites. For this respect, many users are looking for a way to connect these two platforms and lead people from Shopify to Instagram or vice versa. In this article, I am going to teach you how to add an Instagram feed to Shopify. So stay tuned and let your customers view your products from other perspectives.

How to Add Instagram Feed to Shopify?

To add an Instagram feed to your Shopify store, you have to install a widget on your Shopify account. This may take up to 10 minutes and it’s really easy. So let’s start: 

Step #1: Open App Store and Install an Instagram Feed for Shopify

To start with your Instagram feed on Shopify, open your dashboard, and on the left sidebar, click on “Apps”. (Or you can directly go to the Shopify app store and skip this step.)

Now, click on the “Visit Shopify App Store” and search for Instagram. 

Open Shopify App Store

Here, you will find many apps that help you add an Instagram feed to Shopify. Check the apps one by one and review their features to find the best for your needs. According to users’ reviews, the following apps are the best to try: 

  • Instagram Feed & Slider Pro
  • Instagram Feed + Stories
  • Instafeed ‑ Instagram Feed

After choosing the best one, simply click on the “Add App button. 

Choose an Instagram feed widget

Finally, you will be redirected to a page to approve the Instagram feed widget you want to add to 

Shopify. Click on the “Install App” button if everything is fine with the chosen app.

That’s it! Now, your customers can easily view the latest posts you have shared on your Instagram account, follow you out there, and engage with you. So, go ahead and add an Instagram feed to your Shopify store. But why should you even try to do so? Let’s find out! 

Why Embed Instagram Feed on Shopify Store Home Page?

Adding your Instagram feed to your Shopify store can help you in many ways. For instance, with your feed embedded:

  • Your viewers will follow your Instagram account and know about your latest products without checking your Shopify store frequently;
  • By using Instagram feed widgets that show the latest photos from your Instagram user-generated content campaign, you will build trust;
  • You’ll get more Instagram followers organically;
  • And, your customers will be provided with the chance to view your products from different angles.

So, if you have not installed any Instagram feed widgets yet, go ahead and add the one that perfectly fits your needs. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the questions people ask about Instagram and Shopify:

#1 How to Sell my Shopify Products Through Instagram?

Luckily, Shopify is integrated with Instagram. When you connect to your Instagram account from your Shopify dashboard, you will be able to tag products, add names and prices, and sell directly from your Instagram posts. All you have to do is to install the Facebook Channel plugin on Shopify. Just note that you must have a business Instagram account and it must be connected to a Facebook catalog.  

#2 Do You Need Shopify to Sell on Instagram?

Well, the short answer is No! You don’t necessarily need to create a Shopify store to sell on Instagram and this can be done much easier using a Facebook catalog or Shopify alternatives if you want to use the shoppable posts. However, as you may already know, to sell on Instagram using the official features, you are just allowed to sell physical products and you must be located in some specific regions. 

So, if you don’t fit in these requirements, click here and learn to sell on Instagram for literally any business
