    The APP is completely retarded. I don't care if its free, not only it doesn't do anything, it is clear that those who made it have ZERO idea of how traffic from social media is generated. Lets start by the fact that the Shopify part gives you ZERO control on what you can do, other than a few options regarding Sizes & colors (if you have those in your products). Which means they were too lazy to use the entire Pinterest API that has a ton of options and abilities to do a ton of stuff. What the app does, is utterly useless. It creates product sections instead of boards, based automatically to each collection. Second it bulk uploads the products creating a total mess. Third Pinterest's own organization backend is dumber than a pile of bricks. I can't believe these bozos have made a $25B company with such a crappy UI. I challenge you to test your nerves by TRYING to use their (Pinterest's) re-arrange / move feature without smashing your screen. Here's how the App ***SHOULD*** work (but it doesn't). Every time you add a product, or collection it should create a BOARD and put the products there. And if it finds existing products in the collections, it should sync them with Pinterest, and delete them every time they are deleted in Shopify. SIMPLE AS THAT !!! And it does anything BUT that, which essentially renders it 100% USELESS! Luckily for me, I was able to find an automation at Zapier that does this as close as possible, not perfect, but its better than nothing. Take notes Shopify devs! So in a nutshell, this connector is USELESS and sloppy made. Clearly the developers have not grasp of how automation tools work. Nor they bother to listen to the feedback and implement improvements fast. They just made this App to have an excuse that they support the Pinterest channel.
    I am going to use this instead, and see if it does the job. Surely it does more than NOTHING, so that's a start.

    Tried it and it didn’t do anything for me. It is essentially a gateway to get you to pay them for placement. Don’t get your hopes up without spending $$$.

    This is a great idea. I get sales from people clicking Pinterest images and then coming to my website and checking out, but this allows the buyer to checkout on Pinterest website. Just wish they would allow for digital downloads with the buyable pins.

    I wish I could give a -1 star. This is a horrible app. Don't waste your time. The errors don't make sense, I mapped my products to those options that Pinterest offers and it doesn't work.
    Shopify support also doesn't work and the person I spoke to was borderline rude and condescending.
    Bad app, bad support for this app.

    We've been using the Pinterest App for quite some time and continue to be pleased with the performance and outcome. We receive numerous visits from interested buyers on Pinterest. The App works well, especially the synching with Shopify, and whenever we have questions or require further clarification, the support staff at Pinterest provide quick responses and thoughtful answers/suggestions.

    The people who created Pinterest are super smart, I would stick with them, they are legit and you can get a lot of traffic.
