I installed this app but when it finished installing Pinterest told me a bunch of tags were missing so I wouldn't be verified. No help or support for how I'm meant to add these tags which are meant to be added as a part of the set-up process. There was a link that suggested that to get the tags I needed to instal this Pinterest app... Right, great help. As a new person and business to Pinterest this was a dreadful first experience. I'll probably uninstall.
The merchant account has not been approved as for some reason the source URL is not linking to my website, but some random Google URL. I have no idea where this is being picked up from or how to fix it, and as usual the 'help centre' just give you a copy and paste answer that is no help at all! If there is a proper person at Pinterest that can help i would be most grateful. Thanks!
the app shows products which are not meant to be shown on pinterest (they are unticked for pinterest) additionally they are hidden behind a password protected page on the shopify site. Why is pinterest accessing data it is not supposed to have access to and posting it on a different platform?
After 5 years of using the Pinterest App through Shopify, feeding my products as shoppable pins and being an approved Merchant, Pinterest has kicked out every single seller of vintage or antique goods except for the big marketplaces.
Could be great but currently a total fail. Instead of using your featured product image for the pin, Pinterest chooses the image with an algorithm. Why? The result is a set of random pins and size variations that look like a mess. Solution: STOP USING THE ALGORITHM. Just pin the featured images the store owners have created specifically to show off their product. Hard to imagine this was approved by Shopify management.
Whether Pinterest approves your account seems to be run by bots. I got an email saying that my business was not approved because: "Merchant is an affiliate or resale marketplace". I'm not an affiliate. I do sell second hand goods, but I'm not a marketplace? Perhaps it is just badly worded. But a proper explanation would be nice. I tried to appeal but just got the same automated reply back. As always, no humans to help.
Es funktioniert nicht. Die App lässt sich nicht öffnen und funktioniert nicht. So kann ich auf keinem fall Werbung auf Pinterest schalten
I have tried this app 3 or 4 times now. I wish it would work, however it does not. The only thing that loads is a blank screen (if not this, it crashes). I have also tried to get it to load on multiple devices; on my phone (through Shopify's app > sales channels) I have gotten as far as the 'connect Pinterest account' page. Then it crashes or gives me a message that reads 'expected a valid shop query parameter'.
This app is useless for anyone who deals in secondhand wares, vintage or resell. Per Pinterest Merchant guidelines (and their Verified Merchant Program team) the secondhand nature of products makes sellers ineligible for using the program, and the catalog will not be automatically published to pinterest. If you sell any secondhand (or anything that doesn't align with their updated guidelines) don't waste your time with this app.
Product pins are automatically created with the wrong pictures and can't be changed. After reinstalling the app and deleting the product pins no product pins remain, nor can they be added again manually. Very annoying.
