Pinterest to launch 'buy' button on website?

Saturday, 14 February 2015 - 17:20

Pinterest is planning to launch a buy button on the website that could turn the online scrapbooking service into an online shopping powerhouse.

The buy button will allow users to order and purchase goods that are pinned to Pinterest boards without leaving the app or website.

The feature could roll out in three to six months but may take longer or first launch in a limited trial.

Pinterest has more than 70 million users who pin items in place and presumably have an interest in owning those products.
