Once you’ve installed Tolstoy in your e-commerce store, it’s time to put it to work. Connecting your social media accounts to Tolstoy allows you to present your products in an eye-catching way that will boost your sales.

To do this, you need to first bring your Instagram videos to Tolstoy.

In this article, you'll learn how to connect your Instagram account to Tolstoy.

Before you begin:

Before you connect your Instagram account to Tolstoy, you need to make sure that you have the correct business accounts set up on Facebook and Instagram and that certain permissions are allowed.

Click here to learn more about how to set up these accounts.


You can reach your Tolstoy installation tab here to begin connecting to Instagram.

Connect Instagram to Tolstoy

1. Go to your Tolstoy videos page and click on the + icon next to Instagram.


If you see a + icon next to your social media accounts, it means that it is not connected.

2. You will be taken to a Meta page. You need to connect Tolstoy with the business page that is connected to your Instagram. You can do this by selecting Edit previous settings.

3. Follow the prompts from Meta to make decisions about the permissions you will allow. It is optimal to select the second option for both prompts.

If you decide to select the second option (Opt in current pages/accounts only), please make sure to choose one page and one account.

4. You will receive a confirmation once Tolstoy has been connected.

5. Those videos are now available in your Tolstoy account to tag products and increase your sales.
