Setting up your profile
Setting up your profile is a really easy process. The first thing you need to do after you hit ‘Sign Up’ is log into your Instagram account on the next screen. We don’t store your details, this is just to tell Instagram that it’s okay to share your photos with Shopthisfeed.
The next step is to fill in your personal details to create your account with us. This is very straightforward and should only take a minute
Now that you are into the Shopthisfeed interface, you should pick a plan. Tap ‘Settings’ and then ‘Change Plan’. You now have a chance to choose between our four different plans.
This is our most basic package. It gives you access to the Shopthisfeed interface, and allows you to create your feed. There is no limit to the amount of images you can upload, or the amount of links you can create. You also can access the multi-item tagging feature. However, to be able to upload images from your PC, you must upgrade.
Your feed on the free plan will contain adverts. There is one at the top of your feed, and some on the feed itself, but you can get rid of these by upgrading to any of our paid plans.
Price: $9.99 / Month
Lite gives you access to create your own feed, and upload as many images and links as you want.
Among the main advantages to the Lite plan are that there are no adverts and you are able to collect the email addresses of followers. In addition, you can select a theme, picking from a host of colours to add even more excitement to your feed.
You also have the ability to upload images straight from your PC, meaning you can get a jump start on your Instagram uploads and make sure there is no lag between you uploading on Instagram, and your customers being able to access your link.
Price: $49 / month
The Pro package comes with all the same great features as the Lite plan, but adds in some powerful new tools. You are able to re-order your posts to keep your most popular pictures or links at the top of your feed for customers to see as soon as they land on your page. You can allow users to upload their own content to your page, and then add your own links to that content. You also have access to different email collection options.
With the Pro package, you also get access to our analytics tools, allowing you to see how many people are visiting your feed and when they are active, which images they are engaging with and which links they are clicking the most.
Price: $99 / month
Elite is the most comprehensive package Shopthisfeed offers, giving you access to all of our features. With Elite you get all of the benefits of Pro, as well as point of sale galleries and feature requests.
Changing How Your Profile Looks
There are three main elements when it comes to changing the way your feed looks; the page logo, the header background and the theme. All of these can be accessed and adjusted on the Settings page.
This acts in a similar way to your profile photo on Instagram, and it is best to use the same image so your customers know they’re looking at the same feed. Just click the ‘Upload Logo’ button, and you can add any picture. This feature does not automatically use your Instagram profile picture, so you will need to upload it here.
This is the image across the top of your feed, just like your cover photo on Facebook. It acts as the background to your logo and can be any image you like. However, as customers will view your feed on different sized screens, it is best to pick a simple pattern that works effectively whichever device they use.
Theme changes are not available to users on the free plan, but come with any of the paid plans. The theme allows you to pick one of five different colour schemes to give your feed a much more personal touch. They also encourage more engagement than the default white colour. You can choose from dark, red, blue and grey, or you can keep the default light theme.Previous ... How it works Next ... Uploading images
