How to add a SWIPE UP link to instastory?


Swipe up on Instaram accounts is nothing new and has been around for quite some time. However, not everyone can take advantage of the opportunity to insert a link to a report!

Find out what conditions you need to meet to have the SWIPE UP option appear on your Instagram account and in your accounts.

What conditions do you need to meet?

In order to activate the Swipe Up function and thus place links to external sites, e.g. your blog or online store,  you need to meet just 3 conditions! Nothing complicated? Well, this may be the wrong impression… One condition may require time and a lot of work in order to achive it.

Find out what conditions you must meet to activate links in your relations on Instagram. The conditions you need to meet are presented below:

  1. Your account should have a public status (access for everyone)
  2. Your Instagram account must have the status of a company profile, so it should be connected to your Facebook fanpage.
  3. Your Instagram profile must have at least 10,000 followers (ten thousand).

Activating Swipe Up on Instagram

Once you meet the above 3 conditions, Instagram will activate the SWIPE UP feature automatically, you don’t have to enable anything in your profile settings.

If at some point you no longer meet the conditions, Instagram will automatically disable the SWIPE UP feature on your profile. This can simply happen by your number of followers dropping to 9,999 or switching your profile to private, causing the feature to be deactivated automatically.
