Since last year it is already possible make purchases on Instagram without leaving the application itself, an option that we can also enjoy in Spain. In addition, the application has given more prominence to its store with the new design that was released last September. Shopping on the social network is easier and more comfortable than ever.
To be able to make purchases on Instagram directly, we will need to have a payment method. In the social network we find support for a couple of payment methods, in order to make these purchases without having to leave the app. How can we add a payment method?

Add a payment method on Instagram
The store that is integrated into the application gives us the possibility of buy products without leaving the app itself. For this to be possible, it is necessary to add a payment method in the social network, which is the one that we will use in the purchases in said store. By default, PayPal is supported, as well as credit or debit cards. If you want to add a payment method, the steps to follow are:
- Open Instagram on your phone.
- Click on your profile picture.
- Click on the three horizontal stripes.
- Go into Settings.
- Go to Payments.
- Enter the Payment Methods section.
- Select the desired method.
- If it is PayPal, the browser opens and you will have to log into your account, so that it is linked to Instagram.
- In the case of choosing a card, enter all the data of that card and click on save.
By having a payment method in the social network, shopping will be much easier within it. You will be able to make purchases quickly, by clicking on the buy button in your store section, and the payment will be made directly using the method you have entered. If you have used both, you can choose for each purchase which method you want to use to pay for that product.
