App idea: Embedded Instagram posts on Product Detail Page

For any Shopify app dev looking for a new project, here an app idea for you:

As a merchant, I would like to embed real Instagram posts under my product to demonstrate how satisfied real customers about their purchase. Does not need to be automatic, I'm happy with manually copying the embed link. There are tons of Instagram apps for Shopify (they let me add a section to my main page displaying my latest posts). However, this is a very different use case. Let me know once you published the app :-)

Example:
https://www.misfitsmarket.com/products/mischief-box-subscription/ (I guess they did it with custom code)

Hello,

I was actually looking for an app that does exactly the same as what you are describing. I’ve come across this app:

https://apps.shopify.com/instafeed

I haven’t been able to test out its premium features, but I was assuming it can let you embed feeds based on hashtags? So your products can have its own feeds through unique hashtags?

You might have already tried it, and I may be wrong. Can you please let me know if this wasn’t the right solution?

Hey @indiesk I did find a solution :-) At least if you are ok with manually integrating, not by searching hashtags

1. Use this app https://apps.shopify.com/seo-blocks (it's 7$/mon but it actually has many helpful features so this time for a change I'm actually quite happy to pay that)
2. Go to the Instagram post of your choice, click on the 'more' icon and choose 'embed'. Copy this code
3. In the app, choose the page where you want this to show (for me, it was a specific product)
4. Style. I like to create a table in the app, 100% width, 0 border
5. Switch to code mode and paste the code from step 2. Done :-)

Hi @bredowmax 

 

Thanks for sharing your solution! Never imagined you would find an Instagram feature from an SEO app, but I guess it also makes sense if you think about it!
