Pinterest Users Can Make Money With Affiliate Links

Pinterest is introducing new ways for users of the site to make money. This includes the possibility of earning commissions through affiliate links.

Pinterest users can now turn ideas into shoppable pins. If other users click a link in an Idea Pin, they will pay a commission to the person who posted it.

Pinterest lets users tag their ideas with any one of the many millions of product pins. According to company data, users are 89% less likely to shop intently for products tagged in ideas pins than standalone product pins.

Pinterest also reported that idea pins are nine times more engaging than standard pins on average.

Idea Pins, introduced in May, is a multipage video format available to anyone who has a business account within the U.S., U.K., and Canada.

Pinterest describes idea pins as a progression of story pins. However, they don’t disappear after specific periods.

Creation of idea pins includes:

  • Video recording and editing of up to 20 pages
  • Voice over recording allows creators to add their voice
  • Epidemic Sound Music Selection
  • These tools are perfect for those looking for a way to transition from ghost mode to before-and-afters!
  • Details pages for instructions or ingredients
  • Interactive elements, such as people tagging or stickers
  • Multi-draft Save so Creators can post more ideas
  • Export options for sharing content beyond Pinterest
  • Topic tagging allows you to connect content with relevant interests.

You can view the idea pins of creators you follow in a carousel at your top home feed. Additionally, Pinterest shows idea pins in search results, the Today tab, and the leading creator’s profiles.

Pinterest creators will have the ability to control shoppability by simply tagging items in idea pins.

A user can also integrate ShopStyle or Rakuten affiliate programs to earn revenue through their recommendations.

Brand Partnerships: Update

Many creators have forged partnerships with brands to promote their content on Pinterest.

The Pinterest beta introduces a new tool for paid partnerships that allow creators to disclose their paid collaborations.

Creators creating branded content will now be able to add their partners directly to their idea boards. After the brand approves of the tag, the idea board will include a label indicating a “Paid Partnership.”

Pinterest will launch the Idea Pins product tagging system to all U.S. business accounts. This tool will be available in more countries in the future.

Select creators from the U.S., U.K., and Canada can now use the paid partnership tool.
