Shoppable Tags, the latest feature / trend from Instagram, for shoppers / online shopping with Instagram and stores. The new feature brings tags which are planned to pop up in Stories. Instagram has been testing the Shoppable Tags feature since 2016. Since then it’s been a hit, expanding broadly to regular brand posts in the feed.

Starting today, hitting a little shopping bag sticker in a Story will lead you to more details on the cute and/or dope thing that caught your eye and how to but it, cost and some details. This might be a simple addition, but given Stories' success and popularity, the Shoppable Tags will become a major advantage for brands that drive sales, and showcase products on Instagram.
