A new feature has been introduced to Instagram to help restaurants, and other local shops support their businesses during the coronavirus pandemic. The features include stickers and buttons that can be added to business accounts and be used by users to order food and buy gift cards.
The gift cards which can be purchased by clicking on buttons placed on profiles help retailers immensely to survive during the crisis and continue their businesses once the doors open again. Other feature introduced are stickers that can be added to stories to order food directly from within the app.
“Small businesses are an important part of our community, and many are facing immense challenges during the COVID‑19 crisis. Today, we’re making it easier to discover gift cards, online food orders, and fundraisers on Instagram so you can support the businesses you love.”
