I'm trying to set up an Instagram shop with my Shopify store and I received the error message:
"Your store isn't eligible for Instagram product tagging.

Instagram reviewed your store and decided that it’s not currently eligible for Instagram product tagging. View Instagram’s commerce policy or contact Instagram to learn more."
I've trying to disconnect apps and reconnect but still, I have this problem. 
Do you have any ideas how can I solve this problem? Please share your experience how did you cut this issue.
Thanks in advance.

Hi @Tamo

I’ve had the same issue with my girlfriends handmade clothes business and Instagram for basically 6 months with Shopify so I gave up then I got new energy to look in to it this week and got it fixed today.

The process (hope this help, will try to describe as good as possible since it’s been a pain in the ass to get to work)

22th April 2020
1 - I deleted the Instagram sales channel in Shopify

2 - Then I double checked that my girlfriend had admin rights to the Facebook page and that it’s connected to the Instagram account on facebook page settings.

3 - When that was done I added the Instagram sales channel on Shopify again and got the same error message BUT instead of ”contact Instagram” it now said ”contact Facebook support here” so I clicked that link, and filled in the form that appeared.
I attached screenshots of both the Shopify error message and Instagram shopping error message (in Instagram app) and asked them to help me reset Instagram shopping for me since it’s matching all requirements for her business to sell on IG shopping.

After I completed and sent the form I got a confirmation on my email with a casenumber, and a guy named Luis from ”Commerce Facebook Concierge Support” replied me that he’ll assist me in this Case.

I replied to him since I thought he was automated and explained to him: ”We sell our handmade clothes online, I don’t see why Instagram shopping shouldn’t work for our business, please make this work since we’ve basically given up on Instagram last months and only pay attention and our focus on selling on facebook now. So I appreciate your help to solve this for instagram shopping.”

”Dear Jesper,
Thank you for replying to my e-mail.
I understand, therefore I inform you that our team is still investigating the possible reasons for this rejection.
Once I receive new updates, I will let you know.”

”Thank you for being patient while we were checking your account with our specialized department.
After further investigation, we have approved your Instagram account @tattbrand for Instagram Shopping!
To complete the onboarding process on the Instagram app, refer to the following link to complete activation:
https://help.instagram.com/1108695469241257

And it’s now working perfectly for us, we can tag our products.

Hope this maybe can help you to, but it’s a real pain in the ass so If this kind of guide can help anyone of you, damn I’m very happy.

Now I’ll have a glass of wine 🍷

This is an accepted solution.

If the form in step 3 dont appear for you here’s the link to it, choose Instagram shopping as subject

Hi,
Thank you so much for such a detailed explanation! 

Congratulation that you've solved this problem ^^

 

I've also disconnected and then connected all the channels to each other. And the good news is that now I have the status: " Instagram is reviewing your store. It usually takes a few days to hear back. Some stores are reviewed in more detail and take longer."

I have received this notification several days ago, almost one week ago.
Now I'll try to connect support from Facebook (the link you've mentioned here). 
Hope my shop will be accepted soon :)

No worries. Yeah contact them and also make sure you Have privacy, refund and shipping policy in place on the website. Preferable with both address and phonenumber. Think thats Something they may look up when reviewing but not 110% sure about it. But it can be worth to Have a look at. We use the standard templates from Shopify for this and customized them based after her business 👍

Good luck!! Let me know how it goes.

Hello, 

 

I am hitting a wall here too...

I've setted up everything in Commerce Manager, I have a running Facebook Shop and when I'm checking the Instagram status in Business Manager it says

"Not Eligible. Account has been onboarded to a different Commerce Manager" I found ZERO solutions about this issue on google and forums and I don't know what to do anymore.

Do anyone of you have any solution how to fix this issue? How to activate that Instagram Shop and make it actually work? 
The facebook Shop was so easy to set up but this Instagram is just a pain in the a**.

 

Thanks, 

Paul.
