Lyst launches sales alerts for Pinterest

Social commerce platform, Lyst, is aiming to make Pinterest all the more useful for its users by sending out notifications whenever items on their boards go on sale.

By connecting Pinterest to their Lyst accounts, consumers will be able to receive instant sale alerts on all the products they’ve either pinned or repined from the hundreds of retailers Lyst partners with worldwide.

“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 Lyst’s CEO, Chris Morton. “By solving this problem, we’ve made Pinterest even more useful for its users.”

Given the success of Pinterest for retailers so far, the result should help push more sales for Lyst, as well as its partners.
