Setting Up Social Shop
Make the most of your Instagram by tagging products and the opportunity to host or join your team in your personally-branded Social Shop
The Social Shop provides your customers a personally-branded shopping experience interconnected with Instagram (IG). Your shop is loaded with your images from IG, giving your customers the opportunity to see your products in action and easily purchase each item featured in your post via product tags. Add the link to your email signature and IG profile to increase the traffic to your shop, or send it out as a digital business card. The Social Shop features your IG profile photo, as well as a customizable bio, and links to your host/join pages and VIP group.
To begin, be sure your Instagram account is linked with Maven. You can link your IG account as follows:
- In Maven, go to Settings (gear icon in the bottom right corner).
- Tap Social Media Accounts under the Social Media & Links header.
- Tap Connect Account next to Instagram.
- Enter your username and password to give Maven permission to see your IG photos. This does not give us access to change or remove IG content.
*Please note that Social Shop works best with public and/or business Instagram profiles.
Social Shop Link & Bio
Your Social Shop link will auto-populate with your username: shop.mavn.me/username. However, you can change this at any time.
- Navigate to Settings by tapping the gear icon in the lower right corner.
- Scroll to Social Media & Links and tap Social Shop.
- Edit your personalized URL. This will be visible to customers, so choose wisely!
- Edit your bio if you wish. Add something short, sweet, and with a little personality!
- Tap Update.
