Instagram introduces in-app payments: Shopping Spree is on

Instagram has gained a major feature today – in-app payments. This will allow users to make a purchase within the app itself. The company has already started rolling out the latest feature to select users.

In order to utilize the service, all you need to do is register a debit/credit card with a security pin. And that’s it.

After that, you can shop for products, book appointments at restaurants, salons and what not. The first app to make use of this feature is Resy.

At the time of writing, it’s not known when the native payments feature will make its way to all Instagram users. But, it’s reasonable to expect within a week or two once the testing is complete.

Do let us know if you notice the feature in your Instagram app in the comments section below.
