Instagram to Remind You When Merch Drops Happen

Instagram to Remind You When Merch Drops Happen  on Freepps Top Blog

If you’re a fan of merch and always sport the most recent designs from your all time favorite brands, then the new Instagram feature is exactly what you need. Recently, Instagram has partnered with over a dozen US fashion brands to boost its notification system that will instantly remind you when their new merch drops. Convenient, isn’t it?

This new Instagram feature is currently being run through its paces by a limited number of previously selected users. A notification will appear in your account the day before new merch items drop, as well as 15 minutes before the launch takes place. At present, the feature is US market-oriented only, though over time it will likely be launched on a global scale. 

How the Reminders Will Work and Why They’re Useful

These Instagram notifications will function just like the ones you can already customize in terms of more general launch alerts in your Instagram Stories. This particular merch drop reminder will feature specific stickers and automatically launch Instragram-integrated shopping functionality. 

This new reminder feature from Instagram will help you make sure you never miss out on merch releases. Once you click the reminder, you’ll be taken to the Checkout page where you can purchase the items you fancy. No muss, no fuss. So far, Checkout is available to a limited selection of brands and influencers. More brands are added on a daily basis as the feature matures and expands.
