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.

Pinterest Ads

Get started with Pinterest Ads with $125 free ad credit* from Pinterest when you set up Pinterest for WooCommerce and spend $15 on ads! Pinterest terms and conditions apply.

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.

Set up your foundation

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.

After installing and connecting, the CPU of the server reached 100% and the site got very slow, I had to deactivate it to prevent a crash. Do you have any advice to make the sync of products without facing this problem?

This plug in said it is compatible with my Theme. However when the plugin is active the only one product shows and all the other pages of my website are gone.

After several weeks and many hours of trying to give it life, I gave up! This plugin is absolutely bad. Everything with the plugin is bad, nothing works. When the plugin notices that 0 out of 110 is zero and finds that an error has occurred, it also writes that there are no solutions to the problem. In short, the plugin is completely useless.

When trying to connect woocommerce and pinterest i simply get "Something went wrong with your attempt to authorise this App. Please try again." with no further help.

I'm a developer with high standards for the plugins I allow to run on my site. This plugin works well and the development team is responsive, so I'm surprised by the negativity of some other reviews.
