The new Pinterest for WooCommerce extension gives more than three million merchants the power to turn their product catalogs into shoppable Product Pins on Pinterest. It’s one more way that Pinterest is becoming easier for merchants to use to build their audience and drive more sales.
Selling your products on Pinterest just got easier. If you use WooCommerce to power your online shop, there’s now a Pinterest extension that turns your entire product catalogue into shoppable Product Pins. Shoes, home décor, clothing, appliances—it doesn’t matter what you sell. With this new integration, each product listing becomes a shoppable Pin.
Today’s update gives the more than three million merchants using WooCommerce an easier way to get their products in front of Pinners. And for merchants that aren’t already using WooCommerce, it’s easy to install.
The extension makes selling on Pinterest quick and simple. Once you install the WooCommerce Pinterest extension, your entire product catalogue uploads to Pinterest. Your shoppable Pins will appear in people’s feeds as they search and browse for things to buy. The extension also logs when customers interact with your products on Pinterest, so that you can track your best-selling or most saved items.
If you’ve already manually uploaded your shop to Pinterest another way, we still recommend switching to the extension instead. It’s the easiest and best way to keep your products current on Pinterest, as it automatically updates details such as pricing and product availability.
‘By partnering together, we provide the best integrated Pinterest shopping experience possible for WooCommerce merchants to be on the cutting edge of social commerce. WooCommerce is highly invested in our merchants' success. Merchants need the right options to reach the right audiences—this integration with Pinterest helps them to do that.’
— Aleksandra Bettin, VP of Business Development at WooCommerce

A whopping 97% of the top searches on Pinterest are unbranded.1 What this means for you is that Pinterest shoppers haven’t made up their minds—they’re open to learning about your products. And when Pinterest shoppers do decide, they spend 40% more than people on other platforms.2 To learn even more about how to boost your shop’s reach and audience with Pinterest, take a look at our shopping solutions.
