Hi, I am new to this so any advice to advertising on Pinterest through affiliate links would be very helpful.
Hi @aislingmartin2019, and welcome to the Community!
There are two ways to add links to Pins. First is through product tagging and second is directly through the details section of your Pins.
Links alone do not offer monetization; creator must have an existing partnership with an affiliate merchant and utilize affiliate links. Commission to depend on existing terms with the 3rd party merchant.
Let us know if we can help you further!
