Instagram Pushes into Shopping to Facilitate its Users More
Instagram said in the blog post:
“Mobile has changed the way people shop. We’re excited to announce an easier experience to shop the products you love on Instagram.”
For testing the feature, Instagram choose 20 US retailers including Kate Spade and JackThreads. These retailers will share the posts that provide more information along with “Shop Now” icons. By tapping on that icon, users will be able to buy products, according to the blog post.
“This test is going to change the scope of what we, as retailers, are capable of offering on mobile,”
JackThreads chief marketing officer Ryan McIntyre said in the post.
“Our customers shop seamlessly from their social media feeds – allowing us to reach guys where they’re already hunting for what’s new.”
Along with this new “Shop Now” feature, Instagram is also working to add one more feature “Comparison App”. Through which users can search apps or products to save posts that inspire.
James Quarles, Instagram’s vice-president of monetization, said:
“We are so well-positioned in this space. Instagram is super visual, we have a well-defined graph of your interests based on what you’re following, and the serendipity of discovery happens every day through the ad products and who you follow.
