Here are a few things that users should know about Instagram In-App Checkout.

  • The feature is available on shopping posts from brands on the social media platform.
  • This allows customers to purchase items through Instagram by clicking on these posts.
  • Doing so will allow the customers to customize their order.
  • This can include choosing different sizes, colors or other details about the item being bought.
  • Once this is done, customers simply have to checkout from within Instagram.
  • This will require them to submit their name, email, billing information and shipping address.
  • However, customers only have to do this for their first order.
  • Instagram will save this information to make it easier for customers to make purchases through its service in the future.
  • It’s also worth noting that the Instagram In-App Checkout will send shipping and tracking notifications to customers through the app.
  • The Instagram In-App Checkout feature is still in its closed beta and only available in the U.S.
