Let's tag some products from your Instagram so those photos appear on your product's page.

  • Under Collect & Curate, click on Instagram, and then click on Posts.
  • Click on a photo that you want to appear on your product's page.
  • Click on Tag Product tab.
  • Use the search bar and look for a product related to the photo.
  • Under action, click on tag icon to tag the photo with that product.

  • Visit that product's page and you should see that photo.
  • Repeat the above steps to tag more photos with products.

Shoppable Gallery Advance Plan

If you have a photo that is tagged with a product AND added to a page gallery, that photo becomes Shoppable on your page gallery.
Your customers can SHOP THE LOOK when they are browsing your gallery.
