Hark: Pinterest Is Developing A 'Buy' Button

Illustration for article titled Hark: Pinterest Is Developing A Buy Button

According to Re/Code tipsters, Pinterest is currently developing a "Buy" button that could launch "in as little as three to six months." You guys ready to fall even deeper into the warm, comforting arms of ill-advised post-11 pm purchases? No? Too bad.


Pinterest, which is currently valued at $5 billion and boasts 70 million monthly visitors, is basically just a bunch of people on the cusp of spending money—and so therefore is uniquely positioned to take on the global e-commerce market. Re/code notes that "by adding a 'Buy' button, Pinterest is aiming to shrink the time between wanting something and buying it."

Exciting stuff.

is anyone else suddenly inundated with "picked for you" pins? Like they're all kind of related to stuff I frequently pin, but not very well targeted to actually be stuff I'm interested in. Just because I have 1000 pins of neon ombre hair doesn't mean that translates to also being interested in "natural looking honey blond ombre." They're practically opposites.
