Facebook hopes these new tools will empower food businesses to stay resilient during these challenging times.

“For many small businesses right now, we know that every sale helps. We want to do our part in helping them stay open, keep in touch with customers, and stay informed on how to navigate this crisis. These new tools make it easier for people to [share fundraisers and] make delivery food orders from small businesses on Instagram,” Kaylie Smith, head of market operations, Instagram APAC.

If you run a small business, here’s how you can use the new tools:

  1. Activate a “Order Food” on your Instagram business profile by adding your delivery partner link in Settings, under Action Buttons
  2. You can also add “Order Food” sticker to your Instagram Stories, accessible via the Stories tray.
