    Just like the title says is shopify trusted? i'll be using different affiliate links for each account is use.
    and there are quite a few of them

    the accounts are not spam accounts they have all been aging and act like real accounts.
    aged 3-6 months+ and the accounts are similar too luxury types but different niches and post unique photos 1-3 times a day with unique captions.

    I just like to know whether or not i need to use prelanders such as weebly or not.

    Just make sure you are not using same links/domain in bio, if you are referring to site name.shopify.com/Aff=XXX , I believe it should work (for now)

    Perhaps you could do a delayed 301 after linking to a prelander?

    Instagram love links that are used 1 account ---> 1 domain
    Redirects, masking links now working. Its my opinion by spend months with instagram.

    Instagram isn't the biggest fan of affiliate links in general.

    it will be a different affiliate link for every Ig account.

    the shop i will be promoting has some issue creating multiple affiliate links on the same account at the moment so i might be forced to do the safe route any way, which will be using weebly as a prelander with a click to continue button.
    using only a direct link on my main accounts (the ones that are aged, controlled from my phone and home IP)

    don't use weebly, it hurts conversion. If you aren't doing follow unfollow i believe 5 accounts having same domain should work or perhaps invest in a cloaker (mr E has one here on bhw) or you can try fraudbuster or justcloak.it

    those accounts specifically use follow/unfollow method to gain followers. so to be on the safe side i'll be wanting to use unique domains for each accounts.
    as I understand it, to use a cloaker i would need to buy domains who would then redirect to the target site and cloaker would be added to the redirect domain to hide the destination site from IG crawlers.

    investing in the extra domains needed per website (since i want to be safe) plus hosting to redirect those domains and the cloaker, i'd rather use the free weebly method for now and take the 20% or so hit in less conversions, at least until the method pays for itself and i then feel comfortable is spending the extra cash (which if all goes well) will be paid for by the affiliate sales.

    simply put for now i think i;d rather take the less conversions but see that it works before i invest more money into it.

    Not all crawlers work that way. Some just block the access to crawlers, I believe you should talk to Mr E about his cloaker.
