"With Instagram's new checkout interface, we're able to better serve our millennially minded audience by providing a new, fast and easy purchase method on a platform where they are already engaging with our content and discovering our products".

Instagram is testing the feature in the USA and users can buy products from more than 20 brands including Adidas, H&M, Zara, Warby Parker, Revolve, Uniqlo and MAC Cosmetics.

The feature will allow U.S. Instagram users to click on a product featured in a post, see its price, and click again to bring up an order form. It's also a natural next step for a platform that has straddled the line between social media and advertising, introducing and teasing various shopping developments over the past few years.
