Hey, @redfitted 

Since the Instagram platform is managed and run by Facebook, we do not have a hand in their review process of stores that are trying to connect their Shopify store to Instagram. With that said, Facebook as an Instagram Access Appeals Form that you can check out here. You will want to check off the 'Instagram Shopping or Checkout (including Instagram Access Appeals)' option on the form.

I hope this helps! If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
