Today, Instagram introduced three new shopping features in its latest update, including one that allows users to buy products directly from videos seen in their feed.

Users can purchase products directly from their feed and/or add posts/products they may want to purchase at a later time to a new “Shopping” section.  Brands must opt into a business page to be able to offer its product to other users.
