This app is not worth the hassle even for being free. After I got everything working I promoted on of the Buyable Pins through Pinterest. 2 days later my account was suspended. I never got the email they were supposed to send. After contacting them they reinstated my account and apologized for the inconvenience. A month later I promoted another pin and the account go suspended again. I never got an email. When I contacted the they stated my account was considered SPAM and possibly fraudulent and they will not reinstate. That's fine, wasn't getting anything from them anyway but it was enough that I closed my personal account as well. NOT a FAN.

Best sales channel on Shopify, hands down. Besides the Online Store, it truly does generate the most leads, traffic and sales. I make sure all the loose ends are tied up and everything matches with the right fields. I add the images/listings into Pinterest with the Chrome extension. Over time, it really does work. Hope this helps!

I installed the Pinterest sales channel. Pinterest revoked Buyable Pins immediately after they approved it. I contacted Pinterest per their request and got a reply stating that there was an API key issue with the Shopify setup. They told me to speak with Shopify. I contacted Shopify and spoke to 2 different reps. They each said that there are no problems with the setup and that I need to contact Pinterest. Pinterest Support never replied again... I guess they don't reply if they can't just pass the buck off to another company.
