    Instagram only allows one link in your profile and they don't let you add links in your posts. So if someone sees a product you've posted on Instagram, normally they can't buy it. They would have to visit your website and try to find that specific product among all the products you sell in order to make a purchase.

    Here's how to get around that restriction and let Instagram browsers purchase directly from your Instagram account.

    Reportedly, Instagram has been testing a new feature to be released soon , a Tap to View button which is linked to more information about the product and a Shop Now button linked to the product page on your website.

    However, it is not clear when this will be ready for release, and when it is released initially the feature will be restricted to English websites selling only jewelry, clothing, or beauty products. In the meantime, and for those websites that won't qualify, Scoutsee offers a way to link your site to products you currently feature on Instagram.
