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.
