I linked up my shopify store to my FB page shop, but when I go to the shopping part in IG, it still says I need to add products to my FB page first.

Hi Elma, can you explain your 3rd bullet point referencing the online store sales channel? What are you referring to here?
Thanks so much! I hope all my other videos are just as easy for you to follow!

Hi, i have this issue it says You need an Instagram business profile to tag products Switch to a business profile from the Instagram section of your Facebook Page settings. I have it set up for business profile it wont let me connect am i missing something. Thanks!
I actually ran into this problem last week with a client's site. You need to make sure your Instagram profile (go to the mobile app then "settings") is set as a business profile. Then you need to log into your Facebook page under "settings" - "Instagram" and make sure it is connected there as well for it to work correctly.

This helped so much, but unlike when putting in the data in FB yourself, when you go to tag it shows all the variations to which can be daunting if you are in retail and have several sizes. Any insight?

rimo95 (2 months ago)

ok, I am now trying to tag a product as I have my Shopify catalog pulled up. When I click on a product it takes me to a screen that shows one of the pictures from my camera and it has a little black box with the description of the product I clicked on. This is as far as I have gotten with this whole process. I don't know what to do now.
Judith Coffey (2 months ago)
Also, It usually only shows the pictures from my camera, not my shopify store catalog.

I am having a terrible time with Instagram, trying to set up my products form my Shopify Store. I can't even find the place where it says 'tag products'. How do I get there?

My products dont show under the collection. how do i fix this?
Sorry to hear you are having trouble. I would check first and make sure your products and collections all have their availability turned on to show on Instagram.

Maxime Vanwynsberghe me too
M. Vanwynsberghe (6 months ago)
I was in contact with support, it turned out to be a maintenance issue at FB/Instagram side since 2 weeks that kept from syncing with Shopify. They've said they would be able to resolve it today. Others may have had the same issue as me.
I would contact Shopify customer support if you already tried disconnecting and reconnecting and see if they can figure out what the issue is because it sounds like it is a glitch.

Thanks for the amazing video. I appreciate. One question though: Is this an app that you're integrating with Shopify or you can do what you show over IG connection in Shopify? What do I know; I'm just a rookie. Thanks for your reply in advance. Best.

If anyone is still having problems with this(Approved but not able to see the shopping option), you need to report it to Instagram. Use the phone app's "Report a problem" button on settings

Update Instagram?
Sheena Antonelli (9 months ago)
For someone who has never used Instagram, "just going in and doing it as you normally would" is ZERO percent useful. Where are you in at 3:49? Why does it look like you're making a new post? HOW do you make a new post?? Where is the photo from?? Or are you just tagging products that are already there?? And where the hell are they?! This video was useless to me. So frustrating! -And my instagram looks NOTHING like that!! It didn't have the 3 dots! I had to go into settings to find the shoppify part!! NOT HELPFUL!!!!!!!!!!
Michelle Csiernyik (8 months ago)
Sheenaa needs a course on Insta101.... @curiousthemes great job on the video, very thorough and I was able to add Insta and facebook to my shopify on my first try just following your easy steps.....now to add Amazon :)
Asha Brielle (8 months ago)
Nice comment on a FREE video. How about you go and do some research like everyone else on the planet and quit being so hostile. This page doesn't owe you anything,!
Thanks for the feedback Sheena and yes this tutorial is based on you having used Instagram somewhat before so that you are a little familiar at least with the platform. Yes you are correct that at 3:49 in the video I am creating a new Instagram post and tagging the product from there. The workflow with setting up shoppable products with Instagram is: 1) Add in the Instagram Sales Channel app to your Shopify store backend so that you can be verified and approved by Instagram 2) Once you are approved you then have to follow the steps that I have starting at the 3:34 mark to create your Instagram post and tag your product to it. This step will have to be repeated every time you want to tag a product on your Instagram post. We don't have any other videos about setting up your Instagram account if you are just starting out however I recommend you check out this tutorial here if you need extra help: https://business.instagram.com/getting-started

Hi, I have a business facebook account linked to my business instagram page but i cant find the 'Shop' option anywhere in my settings and a few other missing options i saw in your video. Can you please advice.
WesleySnipzzz (8 months ago)
How do I tag products in my posts on Instagram? 1 Tap to go to your profile. 2 Tap the Get Started alert at the top of your profile. 3 If you don't see the alert in the image above, tap. 4 Tap Shopping. 5 Tap Continue. 6 Select a product catalog to connect to your business profile. 7 Tap Done.

hey my FB sales channel been accepted and everything is okay but i have problem with instagram sales channel , it says that your page is not eligible , like if my fb sales channel is accepted and published then why instagram is not eligible since they have the same term of accept ????????
Omar Alomari (9 months ago)
After your facebook channel been accepted and u still cant find the shop tab on ur fb , then go to edit page , then add tab , add shop and then it will appear this happened with me before i hope it will work for u
Scarlett Hrlec (9 months ago)
My store has also been deemed as not eligible - however I cannot see a reason as to why. We are located in Australia, and have our facebook account linked with a shop catalogue? Any suggestions?
Hi Scarlett, I'm not sure about why it could be denied but I would reach out to Facebook support to see if you can find out why or get it approved if it was an error on their part.

Awesome video! Do I have to have a shopify store to tag products on my instagram biz page? -or do I just have to upload items to my facebook biz page's shop products section?
Ames Sutton (10 months ago)
Hi, Are you able to add a shoppable link that does not link back to your own website. Are you able to add a shoppable link that would link to another webiste selling your merchandise? IE, TJ-Maxx, or Walmart? Thank You!
Pedro Maia (10 months ago)
do i have to pay to use facebook and instagram to sell my products?
Hi Pedro! No there is no charge and those sales channels are free to use
Brady Bell (11 months ago)
Do you know how to tag products in posts that you have already done? I am trying to go back to posts that I have done prior to setting it up and tag my products but I can't find the button anywhere!
M Casnel (11 months ago)
I've completed all the steps but the "Shopping" category under business settings isn't there. I've logged out and logged back in. Double checked everything, but it's still not there.

M Casnel I’m so glad you’ve worked yours out 🙌🏼 I’ve just logged out I’ll take your advice. Thank you 😊
M Casnel (10 months ago)
yasemin Giammona You have to log out and log back in. I would keep trying until it works, that's what I did.
Mikash Skincare (10 months ago)
M Casnel same here I’ve been trying for over a month now. It’s so frustrating
Wuzzam Supa (11 months ago)
It says my store isn’t eligible. View Instagram’s commerce policy to learn why my store isn’t eligible. But i don’t see anything that can possibly pertain to my store.

PaintingsByAnthony (6 months ago)
IT WORKED!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH. I followed all your steps and got approved in less than 24 hours. Also (question), My instagram category now says "Shopping & Retail." Do you think if i switch it back to "Artist" it will remove my ability to use the tag products option?
Shane (11 months ago)
Thanks for the video. It says the following on Instagram's official help page: "You can tag products in both new and existing posts from your Instagram business profile". Well I cant see how I go about tagging existing posts :(
Hi Shane! I haven't seen the options in Instagram to tag existing posts so I'm not sure on that. In my own personal Instagram account I only currently have the option to tag new posts. This may be something they are currently in the process of rolling out.

Working on a Shopify plus account and we have had our Facebook store approved for a while now and the IG sales channel has been pending review for nearly 2 weeks now. I even removed the channel and resubmitted per Shopify support recommendation. Any ideas on why it would be taking so long?
