8.2: PRODUCT GALLERIES: How to set them up

Last Updated 7 months ago

How do I start using product galleries?

  • Before you start, you need to be a Business Plan customer.
  • You will need to make sure you have added Smart Pins to your pictures. Without Smart Pins linking to products, InstaShop can't build your product galleries.
  • You can set up how your product galleries look in the same way as you set up your main gallery, by going to Gallery Settings.
  • Good to know - Your product gallery can be a different layout to your standard gallery. e.g. a collage on the front page and a slider on product pages.

How do I add product galleries to my shop?

  1. Log into your Wordpress Admin
  2. Scroll down to Settings and select SocialShop
  3. Gallery ID - You will see a link adjacent to the box - click on it to get you ID and paste in the box
  4. Gallery Location - Choose where you want your product Gallery to appear. NOTE - this feature is based on core WooCommerce settings. Custom themes may affect the position
  5. Save settings - Done!


Gallery Template
- This is an ADVANCED feature - if you want to get more creative, you can use the HTML snippet to insert product galleries into your theme's code.
