Our favorite apps have turned into online shopping platforms (uh-oh). First Instagram, and now, Pinterest! As the latest platform to venture into the online shopping arena, Pinterest will now feature a blue ‘buy it’ button. Basically, some of your pins - depicting products - can now be bought.
How it works:
- You can purchase buyable pins in-app, and it’s perfectly secure---they’ve worked with Stripe and Braintree, two-leading payment providers who protect people’s information.
- Next, Promoted Pins will be tailored according to your purchases. Just clear your order history if you don’t want to end up going on a shopping spree.
Buyable pins are rolling out this week in the U.S. (on iPhone and iPad), but they’re working on international availability soon.
