Teespring is among elite brands with access to Instagram Checkout

In 2019 Teespring, along with 25 other high-profile brands like Dior, Prada, Nike, and Zara, gained access to Instagram’s exclusive new feature—Instagram Checkout. Notably, Teespring is the only print-on-demand platform amongst this list as well as the only platform whose products are created and sold by thousands of users worldwide.

Instagram Checkout allows shoppers to purchase products without having to leave Instagram, reducing barriers like clicks and load times, and ultimately increasing sales (CTR) for Teespring users. Teespring users first saw a glimpse of Instagram Checkout in action during the Instagram keynote speech at Vidcon 2019. During the speech, Instagram announced the exclusive feature, with a special mention of Teespring, to 75,000 attendees, over 120 brand exhibitors and millions streaming at home. 

Because of the exclusivity of this feature, Teespring users are granted access on a case-by-case basis.

How it works

When you tap to view a product from a selected Teespring creator’s shopping post, you’ll see a “Checkout on Instagram” button on the product page. Tap it to select from various options such as size or color, then you’ll proceed to payment without leaving Instagram. Customers will only need to enter their name, email, billing information and shipping address the first time they check out.

Once the first order is complete, the information will be securely saved for convenience the next time. Buyers will also receive notifications about shipment and delivery right inside Instagram, so they can keep track of each purchase.

Checkout on Instagram is currently in closed beta for businesses and available to people in the US.

    This is going to be BIG. Especially for those of us who know that IG is the gold mine of traffic that converts in this age of visual media.

      Sono molto delusa da teespring perché non solo non mi ha fatto arrivare il mio ordine ma non risponde alle mie mail e mi rimanda a indirizzi vari senza risposte. E non ho ne la maglia ne il denaro indietro. Peccato

      1. Lucy Ford says:

        Ciao, hai provato a inviare un’e-mail a sellers@teespring.com? Per favore avvisami del numero del tuo ordine in modo che io possa provare ad aiutarti

  5. Ben says:

    When will this be accessible for the uk?

    1. Lucy Ford says:

      Hey Ben! Unfortunately Instagram Checkout is only available in the US at the moment, and this is the same across all the brands that have access to it. We are hopeful that it is something that Instagram will roll out in more locations soon! 🙂

      1. Sandy C. says:

        If you change your Instagram account to business, would we have access to that feature if we are not in the US?

        1. Lucy Ford says:

          Hey Sandy! Unfortunately not, this feature is only available to a small selection of brands right now.

          1. Florin Suraianu says:

            Hello! I was interested too and i think what she wanted to know is, if she can use it even if she is not from the US once she changes her account to a business one, related of course to teespring that is in those 25 brands list. For me is the same. I don’t live in the US, but i would like to sell through Teespring, so i was wondering if this was available.
            Thank you for your time.

          2. Lucy Ford says:

            Hey! Anyone is able to sell on Teespring, no matter where you are based. In regards to the Instagram Checkout feature, this is a feature only available in the US. This doesn’t stop you from creating a business Instagram account though, there’s still many other ways you can promote you Teespring products on this platform. Please see our guide here

  6. CS says:

    How do we get access to it in the U.S.?

  9. Lisa says:

    This is awesome ! congratulations! . I’m a little bit confused. Does this mean all the sellers on Instagram will have access to this or just the Teespring account itself ?

    1. Lucy Ford says:

      Thanks Lisa! Currently it is just the Teespring account itself and select few accounts that we work with, but we are hoping to work with more creators on this in the future!
