Super shoppers. Standout results.

Pinterest is where people find their favourite products. And when they find something that they love, they’re willing to pay more. 40% more per month in fact, than people on other social platforms.1

In other words: They’re super shoppers. But if they can’t find you, they can’t browse in your shop. Upload your products to get started today.

Reach the right people at the right time

People shopping on Pinterest want something new, but haven’t made up their minds yet. They come seeking inspiration—and leave deciding what to buy. Their open mindsets lead to bigger baskets and stronger brand loyalty over time.

It all starts with Catalogues

Catalogues are your first step to shopping success on Pinterest. When you connect your catalogue, Pinterest automatically ingests your entire product feed. You’ll also get a Shop tab on your profile, making it easier for shoppers to find your products.

This scaled approach pays off: Merchants who upload their products to Pinterest Catalogues see 5x more impressions than those who haven’t added their products.3

Step 1

Get your products on Pinterest

If you already use Shopify or WooCommerce, it’s easy to sell on Pinterest too. Just connect your existing shopfront to your Pinterest business account and we’ll automatically add your entire product catalogue to Pinterest. This solution is most popular with small and medium-sized businesses who already maintain shopfronts with our merchant partners.

If you want to upload your catalogue directly, use Catalogues to get started.

This is the best solution for brands with a larger inventory or multiple updates throughout the day such as pricing and availability. The API helps you to scale faster than other shopping tools.

Step 2

Join the Verified Merchant Programme to build your brand

People love to shop from brands that they trust. That’s what the Verified Merchant Programme is all about. It includes benefits such as a ‘verified’ badge on your profile and eligibility for enhanced distribution. Plus, eligible verified merchants can use merchant details to showcase their brand values and the communities that they identify with.

Step 3

Scale campaigns for higher returns

Get better results when you promote your products on Pinterest. In a study, advertisers who used both Catalogues and Shopping Ads saw a 15% increase in their return on ad spend.4 Helpful tools such as automatic bidding and dynamic retargeting make it easy to set it and forget it—and see great results.

Shopping Ads

Reach shoppers when they’re most likely to act. Shopping Ads include helpful details such as pricing, product availability and reviews.

Collections Ads

This immersive format uses slideshows and video-like content to help people shop for similar products. They’re great for building bigger baskets, because they help people to find more products that they’ll like.

Measurement made easy
