Make a Shoppable Feed

Version 6.0 and above

If you would like to create a “Shoppable” feed, where the images in your feed link to other pages on your site rather than back to Instagram, then use this tutorial. In 6.0, we have made this option more intuitive and easy to use on your website.

1) Navigate to Instagram feed > All feeds > Feed Settings (pencil icon) > Settings tab > Shoppable Feed. Enable this feature then Save the changes.

2) Click the “Add” or “Update” button and add the full URL of the page you want your Instagram post to link to in the caption for that post on Instagram.

3) Display your feed on a page by clicking the “Embed” button and use the provided shortcode. The lightbox will be disabled and the posts will link to the URL in the caption.

4) If you’d like to encourage traffic from your feed on instagram.com back to your website, you can add a link to the page with your “Shoppable” feed in your profile.
