Pinterest for WooCommerce

Pinterest has now become a marketplace to some extent. Thus, giving opportunities to brands to sell their stuff there. This is an attempt where you can sync your Pinterest business account to your WooCommerce store (WooCommerce, as we all know, is the e-commerce extension of WordPress).  

And here’s how you can start with it.

So first things first, your Pinterest account needs an extension/ integration/ plugin to connect with your WooCommerce store! 

And this is what is taking the ecommerce world by storm now. The roll-out of a Pinterest for WooCommerce extension!

With an extension by your side, you can; 

  • Make your entire product catalog into a browsable pinboard.
    • To make a catalog adhere to the following practices:
    • Sign up for the business account.
    • Then apply for ‘Website claiming.’ 
    • Make sure your website sticks to the shared merchant guidelines.
    • Have a good data source that stores all your vital store information.
    • Keep these data sources well-maintained.
  • Add relevant tags to your website as this will help in optimizing your ads for shopping. Letting you explore many shopping features. They also help in retargeting campaigns and help to calculate your conversions. 
  • ‘Shop tab’ will help your visitors make a direct purchase from your profile. This gets going directly when you set up your account with the extension.

Need a WooCommerce extension?

  • You can enroll yourself in the verified by merchant program too. Where a ‘verified’ badge comes to display along with your profile. This will come in handy for you as people will have more trust in the purchase process.
    • To get verified as a merchant, you need to perform/ stick to the following guidelines;
      • Your customer service
      • Your policy on returns
      • And the list of acceptable products

So, in a nutshell, that would be the core of it.
