Pinterest Adds Monetization Options for Influencers and Creators
Pinterest is adding a “Paid Partnerships” option in the platform to allow sponsorships within Idea Pins. The idea pins are the inspirational pins that any pinner can add to their boards to inspire their audience. Now, Pinterest is allowing creators to browse the available “Product Pins” posted by business accounts in their idea pins to make it easier for people to find these pins and click to buy the products. Earlier, only business accounts were able to add Product Pins to their boards.
Along with tagging the Products in their Idea Pins, now creators can also add their affiliate links in the pins so that they can earn commission on every purchase made through their pins. Under this affiliate program, the creators will be able to partner with brands like Rakuten and ShopStyle to earn extra commission on their recommendations.
These Pinterest Paid Partnership tools are currently available in limited countries only like U.S. and U.K. In the coming month, it will be available for all International Creators in Canada, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Sweden, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Peru.
