Tag products in photos for shopable products

I use Instagram with my business and have it connected to my online store. If I'm posting normally, I can tag shop products so people can tap to shop. I can't schedule posts with shop product tags, as it currently doesn't exist on Later. It would be great to be able to tag products as well as people.

    This is not possible via the Instagram API.  Any 3rd party apps that offer this are not using the Instagram API, are not Instagram partners, and are most likely violating their terms of service, which ultimately risks your IG account from being banned.  We recommend you do not use any such 3rd party apps.

    We are rolling out a linkin.bio solution that will allow users to integrate Shopify directly into their linkin.bio posts - and the ability to track back revenue against your individual scheduled posts.  Should be launched before 2019

    Will we be able to tag from woocommerce - I see there is a shopify already?

    Tagging products should be a must!!! It's horrible to plan everything and then need to post it manually on the phone...

    I agree this should be a must for Later! What is the use of planning plan your posts when you have to add manually the shopping tags???

    We realllllyy need this functionality. It completely defeats the objective of automating postings when you have to manually tag on your phone.

    I think this option is a must for later- I have been using the link in bio for a client and its just not working as well as actual shoppable posts.

    So I need this capability and am not a shopify user.  Right now I have to go in manually after the fact to add product tags.

    Nice to see that Later has a workaround for this, but hopefully it's only temporary. Using the linkin.bio user flow is a far cry from using the native Instagram Shopping feature.

    Do you have any updates on when this will be available via the API so we can tag products in Later for our scheduled posts? Having to back and edit the post after it goes up is the biggest pain point right now.

    For others on here mentioning Schedugram/Sked Social, they're not a partner per Facebook's directory so they can't be trusted to not get your account blocked/banned. To find approved partners, check out Facebook's directory: https://www.facebook.com/business/partner-directory

    HI, I was using Schedugram which is an approved instagram app and partner until I switched to you guys a month ago. This was one of the features that they do have. It would be super helpful to have this ability with later.

    In the future, will this integration work with WooCommerce?

    yeah i agree, its annoying having to set an alarm for when a post goes up so i can tag it manually

    Yes, that was very helpful. Supporting Instagrams native shopping feature / tagging the products in scheduled posts seems to be possible for 3rd party apps – here's what Schedugram does: http://support.schedugr.am/support/solutions/articles/1000264726-adding-product-tags-to-posts
