My name is Morgan, I am part of the Social media team at Shopify.
Thanks for reaching out over the forums about integrating Instagram into your shop. This can build a lot of trust with your customers, when you showcase your social media content on your site. Some themes will actually include an Instagram feed within the sections. You can search to see if yours does also under Customize theme> Sections> Add section. It should be called "Instagram Feed".
If you don't have that in your theme, no problem! A popular and free app is "instafeed". I have personally used this in a store and it worked great. It isn't neccessary to pay monthly for one. However, if you wanted some paid options as well you can check these out:
I also thought you might enjoy this article on social media marketing and how to leverage Instagram for sales! Let me know if you have any questions on this.
I do have an instagram feed available on my feed but what I am looking for is a "shoppable" instagram feed. I want to be able to have a hover over that says "shop now" and then it leads them to the instagram photo that has the product tags on it.
Like this company has on their shopify site: https://27boutique.com/
What can you recommend? I can do the product tagging for free in Instagram but simply need an app to give me the shoppable feed on my homepage.
Sorry about the miscommunication on that. The feed in the example looks a lot like this one here:
Let me know if that works out for you!

Would you happen to know how to get the "shoppable" Instagram feed on a homepage looking like it does here: https://orseundiris.com/ (scroll to the bottom of the homepage for the feed). I really like the layout and was hoping to see if I could execute the same look for the shoppable Instagram feed section of my homepage. The app you just linked seems to have quite a different layout to what I'm after.
As per your concern, it can be done in various ways:
- If your theme supports Instagram feed, but mostly the feed redirects users to another website
- You can install paid/free app that will allow showing Instagram gallery on the homepage or on any other page, moreover, nowadays, you can make those photos from Instagram shoppable for your website, where users are able to buy the item immediately from the image pop-up
If the mentioned above won't work for you, there is another cheaper/free alternative
Hope it helps :)
