Instagram Shopping: what it is and how to use it to buy on Instagram

A study from a university somewhere in the world surely reveals that we spend more time on Instagram than with our loved ones. And that’s true, but it doesn’t have to be a bad thing, especially when Instagram integrates a function that allows us to buy beautiful gifts for them and make those moments in company doubly enjoyable. Find out what Instagram Shopping is and how to use it to buy on Instagram.

What is Instagram Shopping?

Instagram Shopping is a tool that allows any seller to sell their products directly through Instagram. With this function, a buyer can see the price of each product in the publications, click and be redirected directly to a shopping cart within the platform where they can pay with credit cards, debit cards or other means of payment.

This tool simplifies much of the process of buying and selling products on Instagram and has been shown to increase the number of daily transactions on the platform. The product was launched in Spain in mid-2018 and its growth has been constant since then, further enhanced in times of confinement in which there has been a significant increase in online purchases.

How to buy on Instagram Shopping

Having an Instagram account and the updated app are the only requirements, and the procedure can be defined in the following steps:

1- You must click on any “buyable” image that appears in the feed or that you search for own account. These are easily distinguishable since they show a small icon with a shopping bag.

2- By clicking on them, pop-up windows will open with the detail of each product and its respective price. If you click on a product, a new page will open where you can see a larger image of it.

3- If on this new page, you click on the blue “Buy now” button, you will be redirected to the official website of the product where you can choose the means of payment and finally execute the transaction.

As you may have noticed, shopping with Instagram Shopping is a relatively simple process, which is further simplified when you choose to do it with virtual prepaid cards to shop online such as the one we offer at Bitsa

Our international prepaid card is ideal for online purchases since it is not linked to a bank account and that allows you to buy safely and quietly in any country, knowing that the limit is always the amount available on the card.

5 cheap European cities to travel

I write this article from the idyllic beaches of Tahiti in French Polynesia. Actually, that’s what I’d like to say one day, but for now I’m content to find cheap destinations where I can enjoy my vacation and return home without saying “I’m broke.” So, if you have plans to visit the old continent at a very low cost, follow me in this review of 5 cheap cities in Europe to travel.

Skopje – Macedonia:
The capital of this country is one of the cheapest destinations in Europe and you can visit it for less than 20 euros a day if you are willing to share a room in a hostel or deprive yourself of eating in expensive restaurants. A very beautiful city perfect to combine on a tour of the Balkans.

Budapest – Hungría:
A great European capital with museums, churches, architecture and a lot of history. Be sure to visit the Museum of Fine Arts or Andrássy Út Avenue and if you want to save on food I recommend visiting the Central Market where you can eat surrounded by the most authentic Hungarians.

Belgrado – Serbia:
This is another of the cheapest destinations in Europe, mainly because its main attractions do not have paid access, since they are public and free areas, and you should not spend too much on transport because all the places are found within walking distance. We recommend the Nikola Tesla Museum and the Temple of Saint Sava.

Bucarest – Rumania:

The capital of this incredible country, victim of countless bombardments during the world wars, is another of the cheapest destinations in Europe. There you can explore the picturesque historic center, lose yourself in the gardens of Herăstrău Park, be impressed by the huge parliament or travel in just a few hours to the legendary Transylvania.

Sofía – Bulgaria:
One of the capitals with the largest number of cultural and sporting events in all of Europe, where you can eat for just 2 euros at any local restaurant. After filling your belly, don’t forget to visit the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, the Boyana Church or the National History Museum.

Series playlist

The playlists of series of the moment

World television day is celebrated in November. In case you want to know, it has been held since 1996 on November 21.

Although we don’t watch much television because we prefer to decide what content to watch, how and when we want (that’s why we are more than HBO, Netflix, Amazon Prime … tbh), the truth is that we have much to thank this medium. Why? For the series!!

The series have their origin in the radio, television was in charge of giving an image to the stories that make us go to bed at 3 am today by self-deceiving ourselves with the typical: “just one more episode and to sleep.”

An picture is worth a thousand words, but what about the sounds? Finding the perfect music for the perfect moment is very complicated. When they get it, the effect is AMAZING! Moreover, many of the songs of our favorite series have become big hymns.

Series and Spotify, can there be a better combination? Here we bring 5 playlists of the most top series of the moment.

EUPHORIA

Sexuality, love, drugs, friendship, alcohol … The Gen-Z break taboos and this HBO serie is in charge of showing it.

It isn’t the typical “teen series” and its soundtrack is just a sample: sooo killer!

Euphoria HBO playlist

SEX EDUCATION

A fun comedy produced by Netflix that also escapes the classic topics of teenagers. Abortion, feminism, self-acceptance, homophobia, fear, love … Topics that don’t fit to just one generation, nor the themes of his playlist.

Sex education Netflix playlist

ÉLITE

Ok, this is the typical teen drama. Well, of millionaire teens. Even so, it has become an international phenomenon. Love and hate, sex and crimes, rich and poor …. infallible combination.

As for the playlist, it is full of the hits of the moment. The playlist you could play perfectly in the next party at your friends’ house. Hiiits!

ELITE NETFLIX SOUNDTRACK

LA CASA DE PAPEL

Nothing can we add about this series. The famous ‘Bella Ciao’ is already a hymn but we encourage you to discover other great songs that will make your hair stand on end. A perfect soundtrack for a perfect series.

La Casa de Papel Netflix Playlist

INSATIABLE

This black humor comedy tells the story of a young girl who suffered harassment for being fat and years later returns thin and wanting revenge (No, this isn’t a Spoiler). Cool and fun, as its playlist with Rihanna, Bieber, Kanye West or Pink songs. Are you going to resist?
