 A new type of product tagging that is currently under testing enables Instagram Business profiles to tag products in post captions. This is an exciting feature that provides Instagram users with a new way to see your products.

Business Instagram profiles will soon have the possibility to tag products in post captions in addition to tagging products in photos, videos and stories. This gives your audience an extra opportunity to shop.
