Pinterest Buy It Button REPACK
Pinterest is already a great vehicle for driving traffic to retailer (and brand) websites, and it lends itself to shopping more than any other social media network. A buy button would further decrease friction for would-be shoppers and allow for even greater eCommerce potential for merchants.

Industry spectators have been waiting eagerly for the buy button to come to Pinterest. More so than Twitter or Facebook, the social service is well positioned to become an online mall, since people collect pictures of products they might want to buy (like recipe ingredients, furniture and fashion).
The popular digital-scrapbooking site on Tuesday introduced its "Buyable Pins" feature, which will soon enable shoppers to purchase products directly off Pinterest by tapping a blue "Buy It" button and using Apple Pay or a credit card. Users will be able to choose from among 2 million "pinned" products, which will display the new button alongside the red "Pin It" button.
The "Buyable Pins" feature comes about a week after Google announced it would be rolling out a buy button for mobile-search results. And on the same day Instagram announced it is adding buy buttons to ads.
[Update: Re/Code reported in February that Pinterest was working taking payments in-line on its site and apps with a Buy button, but the version showed today works quite differently. The mocked-up Buy buttons pass traffic on to external retailer sites and apps where users would complete purchases.]
Why would Pinterest want to allow these kinds of Action buttons? Because it wants brands of all sorts pouring their wares into its discovery network. If partners can drive more sales through these Action buttons, their availability incentivizes them to create storefronts within Pins of everything they offer. More content keeps more people spending more time on Pinterest. And the startup could also charge partners to amplify the reach of their Action button-augmented Pins by turning them into ads.
The move could see Google become something more of a direct marketplace for its users rather than a service steering them to other destinations, putting the search giant more directly in competition with online retailing powerhouses like Amazon and eBay. The buy button allows for a more shoppable experience than on other sites, because the lack of website load time and mobile-friendliness will likely encourage more users to remain on the site until check out.
As Forbes reports, Pinterest's Kendall stressed that the new action buttons were "hypothetical" for now, but such detailed mock-ups suggest the capability is in place and it's just the partnerships that Pinterest has yet to make official.
Last year Michael Pachter, an analyst at Wedbush Securities, estimated ads on the site could generate as much as $500 million in 2016. That figure could be reached even sooner, depending on how quickly Pinterest could roll out its action buttons. Pinterest has not revealed its official revenue numbers.
Last month Google confirmed its search ads would soon feature new "buy" buttons. In a note released ahead of the confirmation, analysts at Baird Equity Research said buy buttons would be a huge win for Google, helping it counter competition from companies such as Amazon and Alibaba, improve mobile pricing, and provide Google with valuable transactional data.
Brands like Macy's, Kate Spade, Cole Haan, Nordstrom and Ethan Allen will soon offer Pinterest posts with buy buttons, and users can search the site based on what products interest them and in what price range. The shoppable pins have been expected for some time, and they are in demand for retailers because of Pinterest's ability to capture consumer intent.
A study by the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth reported that only 35% of millennials were likely to use buy buttons on Facebook and just 24% were likely to use buy buttons on Twitter. As of now (March 2017) both Facebook and Twitter have decided to drop social buy buttons altogether.
So far, Pinterest has had the most success with buy buttons, but platforms like Instagram and Snapchat are aggressively making changes to bring more commercial appeal (and marketing dollars) to their channels.
It pulls in the price and product descriptions so that users are able to view this information within Pinterest itself. On mobile, users will even be able to click a blue Shop button to head right to your product and check out.
Heads up, Pinterest lovers: you're about to spend even more time scrolling through prettiness. Pinterest is reportedly gearing up to venture into the e-commerce world with a "Buy" button that will make it a one-stop shopping destination. You might get to use it as soon as three to six months from now, although some sources say it may take longer.
The "Buy" button would be all about simplifying the shopping process. With one click, Pinterest's users would be able to purchase some of the items they see without having to head to a separate site. This is hot on the heels of Pinterest's launch of its "Install" button, which allows people to download iPhone and iPad apps without leaving Pinterest.
In an ideal world, this wouldn't be limited to Pinterest items like clothes and makeup. Imagine if you could double-click an image of a cold-weather cocktail and have it magically appear in front of you, or select a photo of a beach in Aruba and suddenly be transported there. Until some brilliant scientist gets going on that technology, we (and our wardrobes) are eagerly awaiting the "Buy" button.
Pinterest has buyable pins rather than buy buttons, which are only currently available to select US retailers. This lets customers store their card details with Pinterest, then purchase items without leaving the site.
"The advent of the social media guys coming into our space, we just play on that space with them," he said. "They just improve our reach. And we're trialling buy buttons with several of the people you may be thinking about. But that serves up our product, our offer and our content in a different way.
Starting in 2015, Pinterest introduced a feature that will be a boon to ecommerce retailers. Buyable pins allow businesses to purchase products directly from their Pinterest accounts. Now, brands can place a button that says Buy It alongside the Pin It button inside their images, and when users click to purchase they go to a landing page where they can check out using Apple Pay. This new feature is expected to reap huge rewards for online retailers, especially during the holiday season.
Following the example of Facebook and Instagram, Pinterest has becomethe next social medium to add retail to its portfolio. The company hasannounced on their website that the US app for Android now contains a buybutton.
When a Pin features a blue buy button on the app, consumers can clickthis to buy the product. According to The Street the development makessense, as Pinterest has always been used for the creation of digitalwishlists.
As well as launching the buy button, the company has presented ThePinterest Shop. The items that are available in this online store areselected by the Pinterest team. Examples of brands that are sold here,include Bloomingdales and Nordstrom.
In June 2015 the buy button first made its appearance in the iOS app forPinterest. At the time, approximately 30 million Pins were equipped with abuy button, but by now this number has doubled.

"Pinterest has always been the save button for the Internet, and today we're making it official," Pinterest Product Manager Steven Walling wrote in a blog post(Opens in a new window). "It's a small word change, but it's such a huge part of the Pinterest experience."
"Unfortunately it turns out that the notion of 'Pinning' ideas doesn't always resonate with everyone around the world," Walling wrote. At this point, more than half of Pinterest users live outside the US. So, as a test, the company recently swapped out the 'Pin it' button in favor of the bland 'Save' verbiage, and saw an uptick in pinning.
"We still really struggled with the decision to make the change," Walling wrote. "We have a lot of love for our Pin It button, which has served us well for so long. But the most important thing is for Pinterest to feel welcoming to everyone, and that's why ultimately we went with the more understandable Save."
If a customer is browsing your website and sees an image of something they like, they can hit the Save button and add it to their Pinterest account or boards, which means even more people can find your products on Pinterest.
Before October 2017, the Save button was called the Pin It button, but the functionality is just the same. A button appears on your website, or over an image on your site when a user hovers over it, so they can easily Pin that image to Pinterest without leaving your brand website.
One of the easiest ways to Pin content to your boards from around the web is with the Pinterest browser button. Once installed, simply select the Pinterest button on your browser, choose and image to Pin, and select a board.
