Lyst Introduces Sale Alerts for Pinterest
There’s nothing like instant gratification. So I was excited to learn that one of my favorite social commerce platforms, Lyst.com, just launched a new tool letting users receive instant notifications whenever any items in their Pinterest boards go on sale.
Once a user connects their Pinterest account to Lyst (at www.lyst.com/pinterest), they will receive instant sale alerts on all the products they have ‘pinned’ or ‘repinned’ from the hundreds of fashion retailers that Lyst partners with around the world. In addition, when a user ‘pins’ an item from a store, Lyst will tell them if it’s available elsewhere.
“Pinterest is a great way for people to save and share items they want, but until now there’s been no easy way for them to know when those items go on sale” said Chris Morton, CEO of Lyst. “By solving this problem, we’ve made Pinterest even more useful for its users.”
On Lyst, people can also ‘follow’ their favorite brands and stores to subscribe to a stream of newest items and latest sales aggregated from around the web. By personalising their ecommerce experience, Lyst has helped millions of people discover items while generating millions of dollars in sales for its partners.
If you don’t already have an account make sure to set one up so you can be the first one to know when those Christian Louboutin shoes go on sale…and make sure to follow me while you are there.
