Instagram recently announced that its users will be able to tag products now and the feature has already been made available to the U.S. Prior to this, only content creators and brands could tag products on Instagram.
As such, if you’re not familiar with this feature, you might have trouble getting around it. This post is suited to explain how to tag products on Instagram.
Why Tag Products on Instagram?
Instagram isn’t just the fun and fashion trending picture or video-oriented social media platform. It’s also business-oriented with tools and features that facilitate the connection of businesses to potential customers.
By tagging products on a post, you create an easier way for people to check out your product and decide whether to go for it or not. Things become more straightforward if you’ve got an Instagram shop so purchases can even be carried out on Instagram.
Margins Of Product Tagging On Instagram
While Content creators and brands can tag products to Instagram feeds, stories or Reels, casual accounts can only tag to Instagram feeds for now.
Furthermore, It’s important you have a well cataloged Instagram shop for this to work. This way it’s possible for your goods to be tagged in posts, stories, or reels.
Potential customers browsing through Instagram can shop in the instant of viewing the post, story, or reels. In addition, Product tagging on Instagram only works on public accounts, not private ones.

- Open Instagram and click on the “+” icon at the top right corner.
- Next, select “Post” on the pop-up menu and proceed to select a picture or video from your gallery.
