Install Socialphotos

Get Socialphotos from the Shopify App Store. We integrate with Shopify to ensure that all the features work effortlessly. For example:

  • Tagging a product to dynamically display the photo in your product's page.
  • Emailing your customers to share their photos when their orders are delivered.
  • Shopify billing so all your invoices are in one place.
  • Super easy to cancel. Simply uninstall Socialphotos and your subscription is cancelled.
  • Integrate with your orders so you can see how Socialphotos improve your conversions and engagements.
  • Automatic product syncing.

Connect Instagram

Connecting your instagram will allow us to fetch all your posts, tags, @mentions, and #hashtags.

  • Go to Account → Settings → Instagram, and click on Connect Instagram. This opens a Facebook modal for you to grant Socialphotos access.
  • Follow the instructions that Facebook prompts you.
  • Socialphotos will fetch all your existing posts and tags. Note that this process may take some time.
  • @mentions will appear in Instagram → Mentioned Photos. @mentions works on both captions and comments.
  • Go to Instagram → Hashtags to start tracking #hashtags.

Instagram Limitations

Instagram API has certain limitations. We strongly recommend that you ask your customers to tag you in their posts as tags have the least restrictions. Instagram limitations include:

  • We cannot fetch past @mentions and #hashtags. We can only fetch @mentions and #hashtags starting today.
  • You can only track 30 #hashtags.
  • You have to reconnect every 90 days as your tokens expire. We will start notifying you 14 days before it expires.
