Linking Instagram to MorphMarket Store

On Instagram there is something called a action button.
It is basically a clickable link for sellers to add to their profile that directs users to a outside website where purchases can be made.

This would be really helpful for both the breeders and buyers on here as most of us already browse Instagram on a regular basis.

I dont know if any costs are involved, hopefully someone knows more about the usage of it, but I feel it could be a very useful tool in both bringing new traffic to the Marketplace and for sellers to provide updates.

This would also make a lot of new sellers and buyers feel at ease and also reduce the amount of these kind of posts:

How are we supposed to research new sellers?

Buying a BP from new seller. How to be safe?

Breeders to buy from

Are Warnings about New Sellers Fair?

And regarding this…

…this would be a way of doing that… without actually doing it. If a Instagram account is directly linked to a MM account, researching someone is as simple as a button click away, as is checking out there stock.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Neat. So this is a way that sellers can add a button on their Instagram profile to direct users to their MorphMarket store?

I don’t know that it helps with those questions really – generally those are made from a person who is already using MorphMarket. But I do think it’s nice clean way for users to advertise their store, much like putting the MM button on their webpage:

If this is proven out then we should add it to the help docs there.

It seems so, as I said I’ve not used it myself, and i only stumble across it while fidgeting with the settings. If you know anyone with a business account on Instagram they might be able to give us some insight into it.

This is what there help page says:
