What customer data is shared with the merchant when I purchase through Instagram checkout?

When a merchant receives an order confirmation, they are provided with the buyer's name, address, phone number, and email, so they can complete your order.

Keep in mind that:

  • We use encryption to protect your payments and keep your credentials secure. Learn how we protect your payment information.
  • No one can see your whole credit card number or PayPal password on Instagram after you enter it, even with your password.
  • We never share your payment information with merchants or other people on Instagram, and payment info doesn’t show up on your public profile. In fact, we don’t even share your full info with those you’re paying.
