Can you connect a personal IG to a Shop that is connected to the shop's IG page?

See Kim Kardashian for example. You press "view shop" and get a list of her shops like KKW stuff etc. (which have their own IG pages). How can you link your shop to your personal page?

Hi, @bp23!

Thanks for reaching out in our Community forums, I’d be happy to help.

I understand that you would like to link your personal Instagram account to your Shop so that customers can select "View Shop" on your Instagram profile to view all of your products and stores. This is not possible with a personal account at the moment as you need an Instagram professional account profile to connect to Shopify. Luckily, it’s fairly easy to convert your personal account to a professional account in just a few clicks, feel free to check out our tutorial on how to set this up here

I’d love to know more about your business and how you are using social media to promote your brand! Linking your account is a great idea as this allows you to have your products more available to your customers. Check out this really great guide on how to increase engagement on social media which will ensure that your brand becomes more reputable and increases the chance of customers purchasing your products. You can also take a look at our guide to content marketing for more information on how to engage with potential customers on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Reddit.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
