Yesterday Pinterest the social pin network launched the “Buy it” button. The new feature will live under the pin you are going to pin. The feature will only for now be out for the iPhone in the US. Probably in the future they will launch it on android and outside the US.
This has been a long time coming for them because users wanted this for a while now. Now users won’t have to leave and go search on Google or Amazon for the product. They could just the product from within the app. Pinterest has said it won’t make any money from the sales. But they will rely on the ads that they will show for people to buy other stuff.
Apple Pay will work on day one so no more entering all your information again.
