Hi there glad you made it to the PBC!
I read through your post and I wanted to offer a possible solution to the issue at hand.
My suggestion is to claim (if possible) you other domain as Pinterest does allow for you to claim more than one domain.
Go to your Pinterest Profile Page
At the top right corner beside your photo there is a drop down arrow
click the arrow
Go to settings
Click on Claimed Accounts
In my experience with other Pinterest users & Verified Merchants CONSISTENCY is key! If there are two domains showing that could be causing the issue, also ensure that the domains are open and viewable online as I have discovered that if the sites are set to Private or otherwise not viewable online that can also create an issue.
Please let me know if this worked.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for your reply but this domain has been claimed via adding a meta tag to the code on my Shopify website.
My older website still shows as a claimed domain as well. I tried to remove it but since it redirects to my main domain I would not expect that to be the issue.
Okay, I get what your saying I looked at the photos you attached.
I am thinking a couple of things:
1. Although both sites are claimed in Pinterest - I am thinking Pinterest may not like the fact that they are completely different for the same shop? If you want to change the domain that is showing on your profile - I suggest that you unclaim the site and allow Pinterest to refresh and then reclaim the site you unclaimed again to add it back to Pinterest - that information is updated by Pinterest based on the information that you provide but that could potentially be the issue as you pointed out.
As I mentioned with the VMP a lot of what happens is about consistency and if even a small thing like for example your email is not the same it could create a snag.
There is a Verified Merchant Program Event happening on May 25th @ 1pm if your interested in attending I have attached the link if you want to sign up.
Let me know if that worked.
