What is Social Shopping

Social Shopping is a platform that allows you to use your Instagram content as it relates to your products and services. The platform makes integrating this into your Shopify store simple.

How does it work?

  • Connect your Shopify Store by installing the Shopify App
  • Copy the emded code into your product pages to display your customers Instagrams.
  • Store owners can refresh their stores albums to get the latest photos added from their account.
  • If an unwanted photo is found in the feed, store owners can remove them.


  • The most common place to place your Instagram album is at the bottom of your stores home page.
  • To do this, go to your store's admin page and click on Online Store below Sales Channels from the left hand side menu.
    Click on Themes, and you'll see your active theme. There is a button with 3 dots in it ("..."). Click on this and you'll see a dropdown menu.
    From this, click on Edit HTML/CSS. This will open the theme editor.

    In the folder called Layouts on the left hand side menu of the editor, you'll see a file called theme.liquid. Click on this to load it.
    Copy the HTML code from Album Embed Options and paste into your this file above the closing </body>
