In the beginning
Socialphotos was founded in 2014 to help merchants curate user-generated content (UGC) from Instagram & Customer Uploads, and display them as Shoppable galleries.
Our mission is to make a great product at a great value that is easy to use for non-technical users. Our user interface is simple, and no-code is needed to install and customize your galleries. Finally, we are still here from 2014 because of e-commerce merchants and we thank you.
