Are you currently looking to create an Instagram account for your dropshipping store? Or maybe you just want some inspiration?
Awesome! In this article, I will show you 11 great dropshipping Instagram account examples. Plus, I will even show you why people use Instagram and how to create & grow your own account.
Why should you create an Instagram account for your dropshipping store?
Well, let me tell you; there are plenty of reasons why you should use Instagram!
Let's go over a few of them below:
The first reason that you should create an Instagram account is that it's a great way to get free traffic if your target audience is there. You can click here to learn more about what demographic is on Instagram, or you can see the image below:
Another reason is that Instagram is part of Facebook, and Facebook loves adding more features that bring them more money! One of their latest awesome new features is called Instagram Shops.
According to Instagram, people can visit a shop from a business's Instagram profile or through Feed and Stories. Once they’re at the shop, people can browse products, explore collections, and purchase products — seamlessly through their in-app browser or without leaving the app from shops with checkout.
Yes, you read that right, they announced a feature that lets people check out in the Instagram app directly:
Yes, you don't need an account filled with tons of followers or a feed filled with pictures, but if you post a shoutout on an account from an Instagram influencer, then people that see the post might search first for your Instagram account to check out if you're legit or not.
Do you think they will trust you more if you got an active Instagram feed? Or not?
One more thing, Instagram influencers can also tag you in the shoutout. If you want that, then maybe it's a good idea to post on your Instagram account, right? So hopefully a few of their followers follow you as well!
On a side note, you can click here to learn how to find Instagram influencers to advertise your products.

Alright, I hope you're convinced now, and if not, then I hope the examples below will inspire you to still create an account!
Let's continue with the list of examples, and don't worry, after the Instagram account examples, I will show you exactly how to create and grow an account for your own dropshipping store.
The List of 11 Dropshipping Instagram Account Examples
Just don't forget; inspiration doesn't mean copying everything from the other store and making it your own! Try to create a unique dropshipping store.
Also, I will link directly to the Instagram account when I mention the store name. This way, you don't have to go through their whole store and search for the page yourself.
So, are you ready for some dropshipping Instagram account examples?
Let's start this example list with the Instagram account from Notebook Therapy.
As you can see in the screenshot above, they build their whole feed around their notebooks.
Which is definitely working for them; more than 1 million followers! If you don't believe it, then take a look at a few of their posts. You will see tons of positive comments there:
2. Kawaii Pen
This Instagram account from Kawaii Pen flows in well with the previous one. Their feed looks nice and fits well with each other, right?
One thing that stands out here is their custom story buttons at the top. Yes, Notebook Therapy has them as well, but I thought I'll save it for this example:
If you're interested in having these custom icons there as well, then take a look at this article here.
The thing that stands out here is their bio:
Looks nice, right?
You can click here if you want to learn more about this store, as they are currently not dropshipping anymore.
Next up is another cat store called Cats on Catnip. This is a great account to look at if you're interested in posting meme posts on your account:
Interested in even more Instagram accounts from cat stores? Awesome! Next up is Amazingly Cat. Don't worry though; I got some other niches below as well!
One thing to look at here is their giveaway post. They currently already got 115 comments on this post where most of them are indeed tagging their friends:
Looks nice, right?
It's true though; giveaways are a great way to grow your Instagram account.
Let's continue this list with a totally different niche. This one is from Bluecrate.
At first, they were more like a general store selling a lot of different trendy products, but lately they are more focused on customized products.
Currently, their store is offline, but you can still browse their Instagram page for inspiration!
7. Mooshe Socks
In case you thought you saw all the niches on Instagram already, did you ever see an Instagram account filled with socks?
If not, then let's continue this list with Mooshe Socks. They are a store fully focused on selling socks. They also had a giveaway:
That got them a total of around 800 comments on that post. Awesome, right?
Next up is the Instagram account from the dropshipping store Dogpawty.
They mostly post pictures of dogs here, but they also posted a few pictures where they feature one of their products:
As you can see on their Instagram feed, they post a lot of videos showcasing trendy products:
So if you're currently doing product research, then take a look at their Instagram account for inspiration!
Tip: If you also need some user-generated content (UGC) videos for your ecommerce business, we definitely recommend checking out a service like Billo!
10. The Mellow Dog
Next up in this example list is the Instagram account from The Mellow Dog.
As you can see on the screenshot above, this is another dog niche store. They post a lot of pictures of dogs on their account, but, as you can see in the screenshot below, they are mainly focussed on selling their dog bed:
11. Dude Gadgets
The last example on this list is the Instagram account from Dude Gadgets.
They currently don't post anything anymore (their last post was in 2018), but I think their Instagram feed can still give you some inspiration for your own feed.

Yes, you can go through Instagram and find accounts like if you were searching for Instagram influencers, but it will take a lot more time as you will need to search through so many keywords.
That's why I think the better way to do this is to find other dropshipping stores first and then check them if they got an Instagram account or not. If you're not sure how to find other dropshipping stores, then I suggest reading the article I linked to below:
If you found a dropshipping store, then check their store; do they have an Instagram account? Awesome! Check if it looks good or not (like the examples above). You can also use the same tools as I showed here to find Instagram influencers to check if the account is legit or not. Or you can watch this video below:
