I’m so happy to say that my Instagram shop is now and running after almost a year of setting it up. I started it about a year ago just as when the first lockdown started, and so I thought, I could give this ago and get it up and running in no time at all.
Honestly, I’ve spent so many hours trawling through the Net looking for solutions to the issues (and complaining and moaning at the same time) I actually just left it for a couple of weeks as it was really annoying me!
I’ll have to write up what I actually did in the end as it’s pretty laborious and time consuming. The thing is though, it took about 6-8 weeks for them to verify my shop once I had everything all set up- so it’s just a matter of waiting for Instagram to do their bit (in the midst of a pandemic, please just be patient and take your mind off it if you’re the process of getting your shop or account verified).
Anyway, enjoy the rest of the week and a long post about how to set up an Instagram shop is currently underway.
