Thank you so much, @growmeow_com, for helping so many merchants get properly set up for Instagram product tagging! I appreciate all the work you've put in. If anyone else here is looking for help with getting their Shopify store connected to the Instagram sales channel, please don't forget to share your .myshopify.com URL here. Share the link to your Instagram business page as well if you can, as that will give the community some insight into why your store may have been rejected.
No problem, @Sophia! Happy to help. Thanks for your appreciation :)
I'm having trouble linking my shopify store to instagram. Have tried some work arounds but nothing seems to work and would really appreciate some help.
I have another squarespace store and successfully linked this to another instagram account just the other day so completely stumped by this!
@growmeow_com - Having the same issue. Please help if you can it would be greatly appreciated:
You have nothing on your store or on your instagram. You need a complete profile and site, with content and products and all...
It’s really frustrating. I am experiencing exactly the same issue. Everything looks fine. IG didn't explain why my store is not eligible. I am new on this whole e-Commerce and integrated social media marketing platform. To the best of my knowledge I followed their guidelines. Until IG lets me know what wrong with my store or product or customisation/configuration is, I am in the dark. I went through a lot of articles and YouTube tutorials, but no considerable solutions, no luck. I spent a lot of time on this shit; now I feel very disappointed; feel like getting stuck inside the long closed tunnel and no hope to be rescued by someone.
Another issue I am experiencing is with Pinterest account. I just followed some gurus through YouTube tutorials. I pinned some of store products’ image and followed some of the brands. Two days later account was suspended. No email notification; no explain; just nothing. I emailed, but no reply. I created another account and I pinned six products image I got pretty much decent amount of impressions. Now I am not able to create any more pin. Every time I try to pin another product image I get warning and suggested to save someone’s pins as well as bugging to promote my product.
So far I gained a little bit insight into social media marketing what is very much unsatisfactory for me. My realization it that they want to earn money in the way they want to; It doesn’t matter to them how we feel or experience as a small online business owner. They prefer punishment rather than correction. It’s just Social Medias’ dictatorship. We should rethink before spending a lot of time on those. They think they can do whatever they like. They keep their business running by selling our personal data. I have doubt about how much ethical their business practices are. What we can do is only to get aware and raise awareness around of their autocratic behaviour; nothing else; because they are just giants dominating the corporate world. I expect those platform should be more user-friendly; more like informative, democratic, suggestive rather than punitive.
