How to link Instagram feeds to WooCommerce Products

The Instagram feed embedded with Spotlight can have selected or all posts link directly to WooCommerce products on your website.

IMPORTANT: In order to link Instagram posts to WooCommerce products, Spotlight requires a valid Spotlight PRO license.

To do this, open the feed in Spotlight and head to the Promote tab.

1
Click on a post in the preview area.
2
For the Link to option, select Product from the dropdown.
3
Use Search for a Product to either select one of the 5 most recently launched products or type to search by product name.
4
Choose whether to have the WooCommerce product page  Open in a new tab or not.
5
Set the Popup box link text or use the default setting. This changes the View on Instagram link that appears at the bottom of the popup lightbox sidebar.

Note: When an Instagram post has a link assigned to it, a link icon will appear in the top right-hand corner of the post in the preview area, but only while on the "Promote" step. This icon won’t show up in the live feed displayed on your site.

That's it. Once embedded on your website, all Instagram photos with WooCommerce products assigned to them will link directly to their product pages.

This can also be applied to an account's posts across all Spotlight feeds by using Global Promotions, or it can be automated using the Hashtag Automations.
