This feature is only available to businesses using Checkout with Facebook & Instagram in the U.S. This means that South African merchants are no longer able to use the Shops feature on all ecommerce platforms, however Advertising features are still available.

How can I sell on Instagram?
To sell on Instagram, create an Instagram Professional account or convert your personal Instagram into one. Make sure the account is connected to your business contact details and accurately reflects your brand and the products you sell. This is important for Instagram’s internal approval processes. To use Instagram advertising, you’ll need to set up or connect an existing Facebook Business account to your Instagram account. By adding your Facebook Business account to Netcash Shop, both platforms are kept updated when you make changes to your products and pricing, saving you time and making sales easier.
How to sell clothes on Instagram
To sell clothes and other fashion items on Instagram, you need to have an Instagram Professional account. This account should accurately link to and represent your business, or Instagram may not approve it. You can take orders via direct message (DM) or by using Instagram ads. Instagram ads require you to first set up a Facebook Business account, and connect that to your Instagram account to sync product information between the two platforms. When you connect your Facebook Business account to Netcash Shop, your product data is automatically synced to Facebook and Instagram for you – no extra set up needed.

How much does it cost to sell on Instagram?
It’s free to set up an Instagram Professional account and start posting content to showcase your products, but if you want to use some of the e-commerce features on Instagram, such as Instagram advertising, there are costs involved. With Netcash Shop’s Instagram integration via Facebook Business Manager, you only pay for any advertising you choose to do. The only Netcash Shop fee incurred is the transaction fee when customers pay via your secure Netcash eCommerce Payment Gateway, included with your Netcash Shop.
