Shopping on
Pinterest

Help people find what they love

People use Pinterest to shop, and your brand could be their next great find. Get your products in front of the right people, right when they're deciding what to buy.  

You'll need a Pinterest business account to start using Catalogs and Shopping Ads. You can upgrade your existing personal account to use business features, or sign up for a new account. 

Attention, Pinterest shoppers

80% of Pinners have made a purchase based on content they saw from brands on Pinterest.1  Shopping Ads boost your distribution and help your products stand out. Just pick the product groups you want to promote, and we’ll handle the rest. Pinterest will automatically show your ads to relevant shoppers, matching your products with the people we think are likely to love them.

Shopping Ads are marked with a special price tag icon and use our Product Pin format. Product Pins pull in real-time pricing info, availability and a product description. If someone decides to buy your product, they’ll click to finish the transaction on your site or store.

Upload your entire product catalog

Pinterest Catalogs are the fastest way to get your products onto Pinterest. You can turn your entire product catalog into Product Pins, all at once. After your data source is approved, Product Pins are automatically created for every item in the upload. Then, you can sort products into groups and create Shopping Ads.

Anyone with a Pinterest business account can use Pinterest Catalogs. To get started, we’ll ask you to connect a product data source. You can learn more about accepted data sources in our Help Center

If you don’t have the right kind of data for Catalogs, you can use Rich Pins instead. Rich Pins also display product information, but you have to create each Pin individually and you can’t use Rich Pins for Shopping Ads. You can only create Shopping Ads with Pins created through Catalogs.

More ways to make your products pop

Fashion and home decor retailers can also use Shop the Look, an organic format that lets you tag multiple products within the same lifestyle image. When someone clicks on a specific product, Pinterest shows them similar items that are available to shop.

You can tag Shop the Look Pins using our self-serve tool, or you can merge your feed from Catalogs with a special Shop the Look feed through our partnerships with Curalate and Olapic.
