Pinterest

Integration

Make, curate, and schedule pins on your accounts

What does the Pinterest integration do?

The one-click Pinterest integration allows you to make and schedule pins on your Pinterest accounts. It also allows you to collect analytics data from Pinterest and track leads coming from posts and ads you run on Pinterest. You can specify which of your users have which level of access to which Pinterest accounts, and whether or not their posts require approvals.

How do I setup the Pinterest integration?

In Social Hero, go to Profiles > Pinterest and click Add. You'll be asked to verify your Pinterest credentials once in order to connect our third-party posting API to your account, then you'll be asked to select all of the accounts that you want to manage with Social Hero. And that's it! You can then assign access to each page and group to whichever users you please.

Support for the Pinterest integration

Pinterest occasionally disconnects API connections if they are not used for a period of time. In this case, you'll be notified in the Profiles section and asked to repeat the one-click connection. Pinterest also occasionally rejects some posts sent by API if they violate any of Pinterest's Terms of Use, include an attachment that exceeds the size limit for pins, or are sent at times of high traffic and Internet latency. In this case, you'll be immediately notified on your dashboard and email of the failed post and the reason it was rejected, with suggestions on how to fix the post or when to retry.
