- User reviews

How to Embed Instagram Stories on your Shopify Store
You can find the app to Integrate Instagram Stories on Shopify AppStore here – https://apps.shopify.com/instagram-stories-for-website
Once you install the application, enter your Instagram Username or your copy paste your Instagram link and click on connect.
The Feed, highlights and stories (from last 24 hours) would be automatically fetched by the app and downloaded.
By default, highlights and feed would be active. Disable highlights to show stories instead of highlights on the Storefront.
The stories and feed are automatically placed just above the footer on your Stores Homepage. You can customize this placement by adding following div tags to a custom html section of your theme.
<div id="instagram-stories-box"></div> /*For stories & highlights*/ <div id="instagram-feed-box"></div> /*For Instagram Feed*/
Or you can follow this video for custom placement, or contact customer support to customize the placement.
If you face any issues or require any customization you can always contact the customer support for it. The turnaround time for customer support is usually less than an hour.
