Merging old accounts with new ones

If you already have an account linked to Postfity, and you’re using the mobile app notifications to schedule posts — there’s an easy way to switch over to the new process!

Merging your accounts is simple:

1. Right-click on the account you want to merge (you will see a phone icon on it indicating it’s using the old publication method via the mobile app).

2. Select “Convert to Instagram Business Direct” from the menu. You will see a new dialogue window.

3. Now, select the new Instagram Business account you want to merge with the old one. You can’t reverse this operation, but there is no need to worry, as you will not lose any of your planned posts or post history.

4. After you choose the relevant account, click the “Convert” button.

And that’s all! 🙂 Now you can plan Instagram posts with your Postfity account, and we’ll take care of the rest. 🙂
