If you need help with your order
If you bought something on Instagram, you'll first need to contact the seller directly for help. If the seller hasn't responded to your message, you can contact Instagram for help.
Keep in mind that we may suspend or ban a seller if they go against our Commerce Policies. Buyers who file fraudulent claims are also subject to consequences outlined in our Purchase Protection Policies.
