How To Set Up Instagram Food Order Button And Gift Card Stickers

Instagram has launched a game-changing new feature that allows users to click ordering food on the platform itself, specially created during the COVID-19 global pandemic incident. For the Malaysia region, the application has partnered with Grab Food & Food Panda for “Food Order Button” and Fave for “Gift Cards Sticker“. What’s even better these button and stickers are all FREE to use without any backend commission charges from the social media application provider.

All the food & beverage brands are now encouraged to utilise these features to enhance their marketing and promotion performance. All these buttons and stickers are linked with the food delivery partner to complete the order flow. The audience also can re-share the stickers in their own stories to help spread the awareness of the new offering.

When your Instagram Stories post with either “Food Order Sticker” or “Gift Cards Sticker”, the viewer will be able to tap on the sticker and lead to complete the order. The process will lead them to choose an option to make the order or add the sticker to their own Instagram Story.

When you choose to order, it will bring you to a third-party application the business has chosen to complete the transaction.
