Ed: If you are in the business of selling product and your product images are being spread far and wide by social media, traditional e-commerce shopping carts are not the most efficient way to close potential sales and in many cases directing views to a standard e-commerce site would probably kill the sale.
So the idea of being able to buy the beautiful product you just liked with a click of a link or by sending an SMS from a Instagram or Pinterest photo is a great way to turn social media interest into sales.
Very convincing story on their website.
