Idea Pins and Tagging Product or linking to Product (affiliate)

Hello 

 

I am trying to link to a hotel that I am showing in the idea pin. I wanted to use an affiliate link? Is this possible? It won't let me do it. Wondering how we can link?

 

Thanks, 

Sarah

Hi Sarah! As of now, you'll now be able to add any kind of clickable links to Idea Pins. Most people add in the description but that is not a good practice.

You can tag the brand if they're on Pinterest.

Hi Sarah,

You can only link to products, and not all affiliate links will work in Idea Pin tagging because not all affiliate programs have been added to the program. 

I've also found that not all product links work (I tested it on a pretty obscure shop) - they might need to have a product feed to be available to pull in. Not sure.

Hope that helps,

Alisa
