What is an Instagram Feed?
Let’s start really simple and just briefly explain what exactly an Instagram feed is. Instagram feed allows you to share content and connect with people. When you first open Instagram you’ll see a ton of content from accounts you follow and sometimes content that Instagram thinks you’ll enjoy. This is the feed and when you go in to your own page you can upload your content that others who follow you will see in their feed.
How Can I Add an Instagram Feed to My Shopify Shop?
Now that we all know what a feed is let’s get to the main topic. How to add it to your eCommerce on Shopify.
There are a couple of different options that you can choose from to integrate your eCommerce with Instagram.
One way is to download an app from the Shopify App store and the other is to use an external Instagram widget provider.
If you choose to use an external Instagram widget remember you won’t get any support from the Shopify support team. So if you think you might need help with installation or maneuvering the widget it may be easier for you to just use an app from Shopify.

And if you haven’t yet made an Instagram account for your store we encourage you to make one, it doesn’t take much time, it’s free and is an excellent way to publicize your business.
