Monetizing your social media feed is a good way to earn residual income. For those who are business savvy, they are already making cash from running commercial posts due to their popularity and content. Now there is more nd here's how....

Instagram first introduced shopping on their platform late last year when they debuted shoppable photos, although limited to only certain brands. What they did was to tag links on posts to retailers’ websites as seen in the image above. They hinted at the monetization potential of Instagram’s 500 million daily active users. The sheer size of the app’s userbase makes Instagram a very attractive platform to sell products.

Shopify, an e-commerce company and Instagram are opening up that integration feature, "Shopping on Instagram" to thousands of merchants (Which can include just about anybody with great content). This will allow Instagram posts to be tagged with items for sale. Instagram users who are interested in buying items can tap a link to view and buy it from the seller’s online store without leaving the app. Cool huh? Slay kings and queens take note.

Shopify has been testing the feature throughout 2017, and the company notes that product tags are only visible to users in the US currently. Merchants can only sell physical products like food, books, clothing, toys, art, stationery, and electronics. Only five products can be tagged in both new and old posts. If you are an interested merchant, the caveat is that you have until October 16th to signify interest and gain approval from Instagram to use the feature.

Merchants have until October 16th to get approval from Instagram to use the feature. Shopify says once the testing phase is completed, Shopping on Instagram will be available to everyone.
