With more people than ever turning to the Internet to make purchases, Instagram shopping makes perfect sense – you can set up an Instagram Shop as a storefront for your products for free, and your customers can buy and checkout without ever leaving the app! This means that you can create an essentially frictionless shopping experience and grow your customer base.

An Envato Elements subscription can be the perfect tool if you’re planning to add an Instagram shopping feature to your account. With one creative subscription, you can access unlimited templates for banners, mockups, and more–plus everything else you might need to nail the branding for your Insta Shop in no time. So what are you waiting for? Prepare to start selling with shops on Instagram!

If you’re asking yourself, ‘what is Instagram shopping?,’ then you’ll be pleased to hear it’s just how it sounds: a customizable shop front and features for business users to enable customers shop with you directly without leaving the Instagram app.

You can organize your products into themes or collections in your Instagram shopfront, and for each item you include for sale you can create a detailed product page, including a description, price, availability and other essential information. Make use of carousel posts to tag multiple products in one image which then appear in a dedicated shopping feed on your profile.

With over 70% of consumers looking to social media when it comes to shopping inspiration, an Instagram shop is a logical next-step for those wanting to build on their Instagram brand and encourage followers to buy with confidence.

There’s also a Live Shopping feature for checkout-enabled businesses where you can advertise products through Instagram Live to establish your brand and build trust with your audience.
