Pin Notifications Make Pinterest Even More E-Commerce Friendly
Social “pinboard” Pinterest, still one of the darlings of the social media world, is becoming increasingly attractive to e-commerce merchants.
Back in May, Pinterest began showing the current price of pins from certain websites. The Pinterest rich pins were certainly an e-commerce friendly development in itself but recent improvements stand to make it ever more so.
This week the company announced a new service that will alert Pinterest users via email when there has been a price drop on something they’ve pinned. Pinterest claims tens of millions of pins have price details on them already. The network will group price adjustment notifications into a single email.
