You should confirm by uploading an HTML file:

Upload the HTML file
Select the title of the confirmation file and copy the URL
Go to the navigation and click Add URL redirect
Edit the old path from /pinterest-96bfa.html (add the /)

*Important – If it’s not working check your store isn’t password protected. If it is just uncheck the password protection box then verify then check again (this little hint would have saved me 2 hours of troubleshooting).
