Pinterest’s first advertising product isn’t available just yet, but Advertising Age reports the scrap-booking site is asking for commitments of between $1 million and $2 million from marketers interested in buying ads on the platform.

Not only that, Pinterest is planning to charge between a $30 and $40 CPM, of its promoted pins, which would push a given product into users’ Pinterest feeds.

Pinterest announced it was planning to introduce promoted pins six months ago, and has been testing the product for a select group of marketers free of charge.
