Instagram launched payments for commerce

04.05.18

Instagram added a native payments feature to its app for some users. It lets you register a debit or credit card as part of a profile, set up a security pin, then start buying things without ever leaving Instagram. Not having to leave for a separate website and enter payment information any time you want to purchase something could make Instagram a much bigger player in commerce. A year ago Instagram announced  that “we’ll roll out the ability to book a service with a business directly from their profile later this year,” but never mentioned native payments.

Instagram alternatives are: Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Pinterest
