The photo-sharing app last month had introduced stickers to help small businesses in the US and Canada.
This allows businesses to reach users by sharing new fundraiser stickers, gift cards, and food orders in their Instagram Stories and on their profiles in the app.
Users see these gift cards or food orders in the app and when they click on them, they will be directed to the website from where they can make purchases.
According to a recent report by TechCrunch, Facebook has also added a local businesses sticker and hashtag to its story feature called #SupportSmallBusiness.
The social media platform introduced a section called ‘Business Nearby’ as well. The feature allows users to see the latest posts from businesses within a certain geographic radius, as well as view their working hours, pickup and deliver options as well as make a booking.
