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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
