My Shopify-based store is 7 years old. Until about 2021, my catalog was on Pinterest with no problems. Then it was taken off.
I used the Shopify app to add my catalog and my store has been denied for incredibly vague reasons: "Merchant has exceeded number of user reports" and "Merchant does not meet community guidelines".
I sell vintage movie posters and simply upload images of those posters to Pinterest. Every image is art that is displayed in public movie theaters to adults and children around the world. How are these the basis of "user reports"?
I have 16,000 pinterest followers and generate over 12,000,000 views a year for Pinterest. I have met all the required guidelines listed yet my catalog is rejected with NO clear reason offered by Pinterest.
I have one "appeal" left and have NO IDEA why Pinterest is blacklisting my site.
Anyone have any ideas or anyone from Pinterest able to assist? Thanks.

Then how should we deal with that problem? What does that mean? Some people report our pins or account, or anything else? And what should we correct such violations?
Because I didn`t receive any email about this problem.
Thanks for your help.
