Pinterest Now Has Buyable Pins and Its Own Online Store

Pinterest recently announced the launch of Buyable Pins, where you can simply click a button on any post to purchase the item it features. Now, to make Pinterest shopping even easier, the online idea catalog is also opening its own in-site boutique.

Pinterest is a social media site where users can save 'Pins' by posting a photo with a short blurb detailing an object or idea that they like. They can organize Pins into collections and share them with friends. Since many of these Pins contain images of clothing, beauty products, food items or other purchasable desires, it was only logical that Pinterest would eventually enable shopping directly from the site. The introduction of Buyable Pins made it possible to shop right from a post, and the Pinterest Shop will gather all buyable items into one location.
