Why go to the mall when you can just go on Pinterest? The social network Tuesday announced the launch of buyable pins on desktop, along with an all-platform shopping bag.

The new shopping bag is currently available via desktop and Android, with iOS to follow.

Pinterest also announced new partnerships for its Pinterest Shop.

Product manager Tim Weingarten provided more details in a blog post:

With your new shopping bag, you can throw in any buyable pin that catches your eye, whether you’re shopping on your Android or the web (iOS to come!). When you’re ready to check out, everything you’ve added to your bag will be right there waiting for you.

We’ve partnered with 20,000 merchants—big and small—to bring over 10 million unique products to Pinterest.

Our in-house and guest editors collect the very best of those pins in the Pinterest Shop. Stop by every day to shop the latest fashion and home trends—like Nate Berkus’ ideas for summer entertaining.

We’re also rolling out a new way to search within a pin to find products. Just tap the visual search icon at the top of any pin and explore the dots to see similar pins.

If you’re looking for something from a brand you love, head over to their profile and tap the new filtering options to find popular products, sale items and shipping deals.

Your new shopping bag lets you add items from as many different merchants as you’d like and check out whenever you’re ready.

On Pinterest, you only have to enter your checkout info once. The next time you shop, you’ll be just two taps away from placing your order.

We’ll be rolling out these new updates in the coming weeks.
