Instagram Blocking My Shopify Site Link

Instagram Blocking My Shopify Site Link

Hi all,

 

Recently I built a Shopify store and put my link in bio. Within 5 minutes, Instagram had removed my link from the bio with this message:
"You can't access certain features right now. We remove links with:
• Spam
• Support of terrorism..?
• Solicitation of sexual services
• Sale of firearms or drugs"

^ none of which are remotely close to my store

I can't get any help from Instagram support and have no idea how to fix this. Most of my traffic comes from IG as well so it's really hurting my business.

 

I believe the issue here might be that its viewing it as a spam link? I have no other explanation for the other reasons IG gave me as all I'm selling on my store is clothing.

If anyone has any idea of a solution, please let me know! I'd be happy to send you some clothes from my brand in exchange lol.

thanks! I figure it suspects spam but I have no idea what it could be from.

store link: https://www.articleproject.us (side note: I also tried this shopify link and it blocked this too, article-project-co.myshopify.com ) 
IG: article.project https://www.instagram.com/article.project/

One other thing I noticed, it told customers when they clicked that "the link your following to redirects to (my website with a bunch of numbers after the backslash) and that it may be malicious)
so that seems to be the issue - could be something with the code?
