If you follow the latest Pinterest news, you may have heard of Pinterest Buyable Pins, which is an exciting feature for online retailers with a large Pinterest following.  For those that haven't, Pinterest Buyable Pins make easy for Pinners to buy the product they are viewing on Pinterest.  Pinners will know a Pin is buyable when they see a blue price.   Buyable Pins work so seamlessly on mobile, they’ll help retailers capture the "impulse buy".
