Merchant's domain age does not meet minimum requirement

Just visiting

I just started my Shopify store this month and tried to connect to a new Pintrest merchant account but I did receive the following: Merchant's domain age does not meet minimum requirement


I fixed the other two parts (return and shipping visibility on the main page) but I do not have a clue how to fix the domain age. Is documentation I can figure this out? 


Thanks for the help.

It looks like you are out of luck, and don't expect Pinterest support to help you out. Some illegitimate businesses become Verified Merchants within a few days. Pinterest apparently is more concerned with providing Verified Merchant status to overseas, copyright infringing websites. The "Merchant's domain age does not meet minimum requirement" is not a real guideline and not something that the Pinterest Verified Merchant team actually considers. Check out my post here for more info: Copyright Issues and URGENT Verified Merchant Account Issue:

@XdecorShopp became a Verified Merchant in under a month and @TidecorShopp received Verified Merchant status in UNDER 8 DAYS:



This timeline similarly matches how quickly received Verified Merchant status. @galioo achieved Verified Merchant status within a maximum 17 DAYS of their domain existing:


Here is a post from Galioo's Facebook page letting the world know they received Verified Merchant status on Pinterest on July 27, 2021:

Thank you. This is discouraging. I have a marketing plan to use mainly Pinterest, but I guess I will have rethink that plan.
