Instagram has introduced a new system, Instagram Checkout, which allows users to make purchases of products they love directly from the app.Â This was one of the most requested features on Instagram.Â With this feature, Instagram is making steady moves to be a full e-commerce platform.Â The feature now allows the user to buy directly from the brands without leaving the app.
A Checkout button pops up on the product page when you tap to view a product from a brands shopping post. Instagram Checkout has various options such as size, color as well as payment procedures.Â Needless to say that the checkout is robust and easy to use.
Users will only need be required to enter their name, email, billing information as well as the shipping address the first time they are on Checkout.Â Instagram Check out is currently available to people in the US. Instagram will be rolling out more over the coming weeks.
The following brands have already rolled out this feature:
