Useful information

  • Both Business Pinterest and Personal Pinterest accounts are supported.
  • Only Public Pinterest Boards are supported, if you don’t see your board in this list, check that it is set to public on Pinterest.
  • For Video Pins, currently, the feed can only ingest the video thumbnail and not the video itself.  If this changes on Pinterest's API, we will be able to support this.
  • You can only pull in content from a board you've created. This includes repinned content and pins that they’ve created  i.e. you can’t go and search for a Pinterest Board that was created and owned by John Smith, but you can create their own new Board and repin all that content in order to ingest it into TINT.
