Pinterest for WooCommerce

Description

Pinterest gives people their next great idea. Part collection, part marketplace, it’s a one-stop shop for millions of pinners to source inspiration, new products and new possibilities. It’s like a visual search engine, guiding people to ideas, inspiration and products that are just right for them.

With the Pinterest for WooCommerce extension, you can put your products in front of Pinterest users who are already looking for ideas and things to buy. Connect your WooCommerce store to your Pinterest business account directly in the WooCommerce app. Your entire catalog will become browsable on Pinterest in just a few clicks.

Open-minded and undecided

People on Pinterest are eager for new ideas, which means they want to hear from you. In fact, 97% of top Pinterest searches are unbranded. Content from brands doesn’t interrupt on Pinterest—it inspires. Shopping features are built into both the organic Pinner experience, and our ad solutions.

We’ll also automatically set up your Pinterest tag, and a shop tab on your Pinterest profile.

Connect your account

Install the extension and connect your account to quickly publish Product Pins, automatically update your product catalog every day, and track performance with the Pinterest tag.

Catalogs

Turn your entire product catalog into browsable product Pins, all at once.

Pinterest tag

Add the tag to your site to measure conversions and to optimize ads for shopping campaigns or retargeting.

Consider longer attribution windows to capture shoppers who take more time to convert.

Build brand loyalty

People on Pinterest are nearly 50% more likely to be open to new brands while shopping. And once they find a brand they like, they’re more loyal.

Become their new favorite with merchant solutions like the Shop Tab and the Verified Merchants Program. Shop Tab on profile: Consider this your always-on Pinterest shop. It’s automatically created when you upload your catalog so people can shop right from your profile.

Verified Merchant Program

People love to shop from brands they trust. That’s what the Verified Merchant Program is all about. It includes benefits like a “verified” badge on your profile and eligibility for enhanced distribution.

I couldn't work out what was causing only 1 of my products to be displayed on my site. After disabling all my plugins and then reenabling them one by one I discovered this plugin was the cause of my issues.

Like others in this forum, I found myself disapproved for shopping on Pinterest twice - despite having had my website and my Pinterest account for around 3 years now. Before risking my third and final appeal, I spent ages filling out all the Pinterest fields (which were already filled out on my Facebook and Google sections of Woo settings, but unhelpfully couldn't be shared). There's no way I could do this on an ongoing basis - it's totally impractical. Other issues have been: plugin conflict with RankMath (resolved thanks to support) and my Pinterest tag being flagged as 'unhealthy' despite it being auto-generated by the WooCommerce-Pinterest integration. Still working on the latter, but happily Pinterest have relented and approved me as a merchant on Pinterest. So I'm still working through the ongoing issues but there is light at the end of the tunnel, I hope.

This plugin worked until a few months ago but stopped working with the update to WooCommerce which cost me my Pinterest business account. After working directly with Pinterest support who told me I needed to contact Pinterest for WooCommerce so they could fix the issue, I filed a support ticket. Pinterest for WooCommerce was very unhelpful. They kept going in circles with me instead of listening to the real issue and closed my case with no resolution. Do yourself a favor, skip the hassle and protect your business.

Unfortunately I found this plug-in was not helpful for my website. I received an automated email with the subject "Fix your Pinterest tag to remain a verified merchant". When I went over to my Pinterest account, I couldn't understand the error so i got in touch with Pinterest. Although I got a prompt response, the issue was something with the pinterest tag not firing during checkout. I didn't understand any of it and was referred to a web development page of Pinterest's. I was also told I needed to get on to my web developer. Well, as I have done my website myself from scratch, and I'm the web developer, it all got too complicated for what I thought was going to be something simple to use. So I've decided to remove the plugin and hope in the future it will be improved.

This plugin isn't working - can't get past setup. It's a known bug and they keep saying it's fixed with every new release but it isn't. I'm now going to lose my verified status on Pinterest because of this plugin. I've tried working with support and they keep telling me to change menu settings that aren't even available because I can't get through setup without an error freezing the whole thing. Absolutely avoid this plugin until they do a MASSIVE fix.
