Instagram began testing a shopping feature in the last months of 2016 and has since implemented features to enhance the platform for e-commerce—recently, Instagram for Business held an #InstagramPopUp in London that shared "a shopping experience like no other."
The exclusive Instagram pop-up shop at Covent Garden was launched to showcase brand partners, including six fashion brands like RIXO, Never Fully Dressed, Hæckels, Oh Squirrel and Carrie Elizabeth, as well as other lifestyle and beauty products.
At the marketplace, people had the chance to see the products available for sale, as well as the people behind the brands, and make any purchases with ease. For those who weren't able to make the event and converse with the people behind the many successful brands, people also have the chance to learn more about business on Instagram via live online sessions.
