Create a Pinterest store in a few clicks! All followers can see your inventory, shop and pay on the spot. Promote your Pins and Boards and make $$ from your account. Signup by entering your e-mail address - Invites going out soon!
Once you’ve set up your Shopinterest account and chosen which boards to monetize, your Pinterest followers can click on items directly, check out via an embedded online shopping cart, and voila, you’ve got an easy-to-navigate online boutique. Pretty crazy huh? Unlike the slightly shady affiliate links program Pinterest was running without informing its users, Shopinterest was developed by an outside company called Pintics and requires users to sign up for the service on a separate website. In other words, if you’re not interested in starting your own Pinterest store, Shopinterest won’t affect your normal pinning experience.
According to Francisco Guerrero, Pintics’ CEO, ShopInterest isn’t a “pivot” for Pintics – that other service is still doing well, he says, and is now tracking the analytics associated with 750,000 pins. Instead, the two services, Pintics and ShopInterest, are aimed at different audiences. “Our Pinterest analytics service targets large e-commerce companies,” Guerrero says, “but after we saw the large volume of sales generated via Pinterest, we decided to help regular users join in the fun and profits.”
