Connect your Pinterest account

To authorize your account:

  1. In the Home Menu, click Settings.
  2. Click Connected Accounts.
  3. Click Connect Account.
  4. Select Pinterest from the Social Accounts menu.
  5. Log in using your Pinterest username and password. 
  6. Click Allow to authorize the connection between Pinterest and your site. We'll never post anything to Pinterest without your permission—this authorization adds an option to create a new pin when you publish new content.
  7. If you want to push content to Pinterest automatically, ensure Show Push Option is checked, and choose a push target from the Select Board drop-down menu.
  8. Click Save.
Note: It can take a moment for Pinterest to verify your site. If you had a different website URL on your Pinterest profile before this, an error message will display. To fix the issue, add the correct URL to your Pinterest profile.

After adding your Pinterest link, the social icon will automatically display in most templates, but not all of them. You can also add social icons using the Social Links Block.

Add a Share button

Version 7.1 doesn't support built-in Share buttons.

To help visitors share your content on Pinterest, you can add a Pinterest Share button to the following content:

  • Blog posts
  • Gallery images
  • Products
Tip: Pinterest only appears as a sharing option if the item has a thumbnail image.

Push content to Pinterest automatically

Add Save buttons

You can add Save buttons that appear when hovering over images in Image Blocks, Gallery Blocks (Slideshow, Grid, and Stacked only), Products Pages, individual products, and blog posts.

To learn more, visit Adding Pinterest Save buttons.

Enable Rich Pins

Rich Pins are Pinterest Pins that include extra information, like your site title and product price. To learn more, visit Using Rich Pins with Squarespace.

View Pinterest Analytics

If you have a Pinterest Business Account, connect Pinterest with your Squarespace site to see additional metrics in your Pinterest Analytics page. To learn more, visit Pinterest's documentation.

Track sales with Pinterest Tag (optional)

Pinterest Tag is Pinterest's analytics tool that tracks visitor actions on your site after seeing your Promoted Pins. You can add Pinterest Tag code to Squarespace to track users who check out on your site after seeing your product on Pinterest.

Adding the Pinterest Tag includes using Code Injection. This is a Premium feature available in Business and Commerce plans.

To use Pinterest Tag, you’ll need:

To get started, visit Pinterest’s documentation.

Note: When adding the code to Squarespace, ensure that you copy both sets of code to track checkout correctly.

After you've completed these steps, you can use the Tag data to measure return on ad spend (ROAS) and create audiences to target with your Promoted Pins.
