Instagram has gained a major new feature – in-app payments. The company has confirmed the ability to make purchases from within the app has been rolled out to a limited number of users.
All you have to do is to register a debit/credit card and set up a security pin. That’s it.
After that you can start shopping from within your Instagram app – booking appointments at restaurants, salons, and all that stuff. One of the first apps that users can use for all this is Resy.
There’s no word on when the native payments feature will be made available to all Instagram users, although it’s reasonable to expect that will happen gradually if everything goes fine in this initial testing phase.
