New Instagram Share Feature for iOS

By • 2 weeks ago with 10 replies already

Good news! We have a new feature which makes it even easier to share products to Instagram directly from the product page. Introducing the Instagram share feature for iOS (the operating system for Apple devices including the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.) This is how it works:

Step1

Go to the Zazzle app on your phone, choose a product you’d like to share on Instagram, and tap the share icon at the bottom of the page.

             

Step 2

A pop-up menu will appear with different apps that you can share the product to including Instagram! Simply tap the Instagram icon and go to the next step. Please note: You need to have the Instagram app installed on your phone in order for the icon to surface within the pop-up menu.

Step 3

Write a catchy caption, add some witty hashtags, and you’re done! Don’t forget to use the hashtag #ZazzleMade so we can easy find your post and like or comment on it.

                
We hope you enjoy this new feature and start sharing today.

What about Android phones? We are looking at options for providing a similar share feature for our Android users in the future. The easiest way to share a product to Instagram from your Android phone today is to take a screenshot of the product page, open your Instagram app, and then choose that screenshot to share. If you are not sharing your own product, please remember to give credit to the Designer by tagging them in the post.

  1. A shame the app is only available in the center of the universe called the USA … no direct sharing for people like me living in the Netherlands

    1. Hi Anja! Thank you for your comment. We are hoping to get the app available in the EU soon. We’ll announce it once we do. Thank you!

    1. Hi Patricia,

      Great question! Since Instagram is an image sharing app, there isn’t a way to link back to the product page directly from the post. The best way for your followers to get to your Zazzle store from your post is to tag your Instagram profile in the post, if your Instagram profile has a link to your Zazzle store. You can also type in your store URL into your post. Don’t forget to use lots of hashtags to get visibility for your post! 🙂

  2. Excellent blog article. I just tried it and it worked great. So glad Zazzle has come through allowing artists to do this where the products link back to the designers page. Awesome work by your team.

    PS: I hope the referral code is attached to the posted product.

    1. Hi Kathleen,

      Thank you for the comment! The product image won’t link back to the product page, but we recommend you tag your Instagram profile in your post if it links back to your store or type in your store URL into your post. And of course, we recommend you use plenty of relevant hashtags. It looks like you are already doing both — so you’re ahead of the game. 🙂

    1. Hi Dale,

      Hope all is well.

      The Zazzle app is available for Android, which you can download here.

      We don’t have the Instagram share option at this time on Android, but we are looking to add it in the future.

      Hope this helps!
      Best,
      Elizabeth P.
