Who can use Pincodes?

Currently you must be in the US, UK or Canada and have a business account to create Pincodes.

What you need to know when using Pinterest Marketing for Business:

  • When displaying your Pincode, the circular part of a Pincode should be a minimum of ~1.5 inches in diameter to be reliably scannable. Also keep in mind, if you’re printing the Pincode on a physical object, you’ll want to print the Pincode on a surface in a way that it will be legible.
  • Make sure you own the rights to the image for your Pincode, as with any other Pin you create on Pinterest.

How can you use Pincodes to help you get more sales when using Pinterest Marketing for Business?

When you have printed your Pincode you can feature it in your store.

For example, if you’re selling winter shoes you can feature a Pincode that leads back to a board that features your new arrivals. This makes it easy for Pinners to see your collection before it goes out to the public.

Inspire your customers by showing them multiple ways your product can be used. For example, if you’re selling food products create a Pincode that will lead to a recipe page and showcase the different ways to use your food products. By being helpful you will sell more. Remember to combine inspiration with information.

You can feature Pincodes on your website, blogs, email marketing campaigns, marketing materials, and so on. Pinterest Marketing for Business is easier than you might think.

There you have it! You have just learned how to use Pincodes to sell more! Thanks Pinterest!
