You are all set!

Instagram Requirement: Facebook owns Instagram, so in order to use Instagram Business features and activate auto-posting, you must have an Instagram Business or Creator account and authenticate with a Facebook Page. If you haven’t created a Facebook page yet, we recommend creating one first and then coming back to finish linking your Instagram account to PLANOLY.
