  • Step One – Create a Story collection for every Instagram post you want published to your Instagram shop. 
    • Into your VENNDY Story insert a collection of items (products - clothes, accessories, places - hotels, restaurants, recommendations - books, blog posts, music, articles), all related to your Instagram post. The items may or may not include an affiliate link. Affiliate links can also be added at a later stage, when you are ready to join affiliate programs.
    • Upload the same image you uploaded to Instagram as the Story’s cover and gather into this story all the related items (whenever applicable, the items will already include the affiliate link you inserted).
    • Make sure to create the VENNDY collections in the same chronological order on your Instagram feed. 
    • Learn how to curate items to VENNDY here, how to integrate them to stories here, and how to insert affiliate links from any of your affiliate programs here!

  • Step Two – Color the Instagram icon on the upper right side of the VENNDY story’s image.

  • This way your Instagram shop is being created and you can see your Insta-Shop stories from the drop-down menu, next to your profile image on the top right-hand side of VENNDY.
  • Step Three – Embed your Insta-Shop Code into a "Shop my Instagram" page on your blog. To get the code click the GET CODE FOR INSTA SHOP from your Insta-Shop view. 

  • Step Four – Link to your Instagram shop in your Instagram bio. Provide the URL for your "Shop Page" in your Instagram bio. This drives all social traffic to your blog or website.

  • Step Five – Educate your followers on how to shop your Instagram. Include "Link in bio to shop my look” in the caption of each post. Use Instagram Stories to tell followers about your Instagram shop. If you have the Swipe Up feature, use it to link to your Instagram shop.
