Pinterest’s Latest Update Will Change Online Shopping Forever

pinterest buyable pins

You know the story — so often you find yourself scrolling through Pinterest and adding outfits, furniture, DIY essentials and more to a board, only to wish that that board could be a shopping cart. Well, Pinterest is about to change the online Pinning game majorly — by giving you an instant shop option. The social media network announced today (after teasing us a few months back) it is launching buyable Pins by the end of the month. And someone that is all about it is our very own, Brit.

Coming to iOS devices by the end of June and to Android and desktops in future updates, buyable Pins give users the ability to purchase more than a million items from brands like Macy’s, Nordstrom and Michaels from a Pin without ever leaving the app or site. How convenient for our impulse buying personalities/terrifying for our wallets. In the near future blue buttons will be popping up alongside that red Pin button and, as Pinterest says, “Blue means you can buy.” And buy we will ;)

With buyable Pins, bringing the creative ideas — or fashionable outfits — to life will be way easier, like the click of a button easy. Post-launch, Pinners will be able to either search for shoppable items or naturally discover them as they scroll through their Pin feed. Users can swipe to pick their fave color and securely pay for the items with Apple Pay or a credit card. Have no fear when it comes to privacy as Pinterest or sellers won’t have access to your info. Instead, a device-specific number will be used.

Don’t mind us, we’ll just be checking the app store for updates endlessly until buyable Pins goes live.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
