In a few weeks, Pinterest will be introducing buyable Pins and their color will be … blue!
Blue means you can buy
When you spot a Pin with a blue price tag, you’ll know you can buy it right from the app. Searching for something specific? Use the price filter to hone in on just the right Pin.
You can also find the right color for you, within the Pin itself. See how you feel about the orange sleeping bag, or maybe the black one. Swipe through all your options and pick your favorite.
Is Pinterest buy safe?
Once you hit the Pinterest buy button you’ll be able to pay with Apple Pay or a credit card. Soon, you’ll be on your way and back to Pinning. Once you enter your personal info, Pinterest will store it so you don’t have to thumb it in again next time. The fewer people who have access your credit card information, the better—and that includes Pinterest. That’s why they won’t store your credit card info themselves they say in their Pinterest Pay newsblog. Instead, they are working with payment processors who’ve been protecting people’s information for years. And when you pay with Apple Pay, it uses a device specific account number instead of your actual credit card number, so neither your device nor Apple Pay will send your actual card number to the seller.
Pinterest buy coming soon in the US for Apple phone users
Wait, am I being discrimiated again as European Android user? I guess so … If you’re in the U.S., you’ll see buyable Pins on your iPhone or iPad in a few weeks. If you’re on Android or using your desktop, you’ll see them in future releases.
