Pinterest makes buyable pins available on iOS for US users

At the beginning of this month, Pinterest announced the debut of its Buyable Pins program, an easy and safe way to purchase products via the service.

Today, according to a blog post by Michael Yamartino, Pinterest’s Head of Commerce, the program is now in place. It’s rolling out to US pinners on the iPhone and iPad throughout the coming weeks. Android and desktop Pinners will have to wait for an unspecified time.

Ever been to a tech festival?

If you received an email regarding the program, then your account is set up for purchasing. Just pull up the app and you’ll see the pins appear in the home feed, on boards and in search results.

A pin with a blue price means that item is for sale. Or you can search for an item you want and then swipe through the buyable pins in the results.

When you’ve made your purchasing decision, tap Buy it and pay right in the app via Apple Pay or a credit card.

Not ready to plunk down money yet? You can just peruse the Shop our Picks category to view curated items. The Shop category shows the latest buyable pins.
