Posted By Seller Panda comments June 8, 2015

Great news! Shopify and Pinterest have just announced the release of buyable pins, a new type of pin that will allow your buyers to buy from your Shopify store directly on Pinterest!

Also if you haven’t yet had a chance to use Pinterest as a marketing channel for your store, now you can use it not only to promote your store but as an additional sales channel for your Shopify store.

So how do you go about doing that? Here is a short guide that will help you in setting up this new sales channel.

Important note: Currently this feature is only available to US  stores using Payments by Shopify through Stripe.

Start out by going in your Shopify admin to Settings > Sales Channels.

Under Pinterest click on Add channel.
