Hi there,

Good day!

I would like to ask for Pinterest Sales Channel availability.

My store address is in Brunei Darussalam, is it not available or just shopify does not support pinterest anymore..

Thank you for your response..

As of October 16, 2018, Pinterest no longer supports Buyable Pins. The Pinterest sales channel isn't available to add from the Sales channels list. If you're already using the Pinterest sales channel, then Pinterest converts your existing Buyable Pins into Product Pins. You can continue to sync your products with Pinterest using the Pinterest sales channel, and they appear on Pinterest as Product Pins. Source 

You can make Pinterest pin then drive visitor from your store.

According to this other forum post you can't integrate Pinterest with Shopify at all anymore, how is this possible?

Pinterest is arguably the most important social media platform for eCommerce. How can Shopify stop supporting this without any alternative... sites that were signed up before still work but no new sites can integrate the sales channel? This is a very clear reason to avoid Shopify and use another eCommerce platform like Woo-commerce, etc. Someone please tell me I'm wrong because this is unbelievable to me.

It is very strange, shopify seem to be making some very very strange and silly decisions lately and losing vision.

 

1. removing mailchimp integration

2. removing pinterest sales channel

3. removing image editor for quick product edits

 

Isnt a company supposed to be moving forwards and adding function and usability. Shopify seems to be moving backwards in 2019... why??

Why? this is a backwards negative decision. Also why have you got rid of the image editor, its very frustrating the mentality of shopify in 2019, dont turn into another company that has gotten popular, making revenue and then decides to not give a %$#& anymore about what the users actually need.

Pinterest converted existing customers' previously purchased Pins into Product Pins. You can sync your products with Pinterest on sales channels, they appear as Product Pins
