WWE will host a SummerSlam Superstore Instagram Live shopping experience on WWE’s main Instagram handle this Thursday, Aug. 19, at 10:30 a.m. PT, as first reported by Adweek. The Instagram Live will happen just before doors open at the SummerSlam Superstore at 11 a.m. PT in Las Vegas. Live shopping unlocks the ability to tag and share products in Instagram Lives, allowing customers to purchase in real-time when they are inspired by a brand or creator’s live video content, opening up a new shoppable channel for businesses.
The livestream will be hosted by WWE correspondent Sarah Schreiber and highlight a selection of featured WWE Shop and SummerSlam products, which can be purchased directly through the livestream by clicking into the pinned products or by clicking into the shopping bag (next to the comment bar) on the screen.
