9 Simple Steps to Verify your Pinterest Account in Shopify

Pinterest is an invaluable social media platform for ecommerce sites, so it makes sense to have an account and actively pin to your boards.

Pinterest allows you to verify your Pinterest account in Shopify to give your account added trust.  Below are the simple steps to do this for a Shopify website.

9 Simple Steps To Verify your Pinterest Account in Shopify

You should confirm by uploading an HTML file:
  1. Download the HTML file from Pinterest
  2. Log in to your Shopify account and click Account
  3. Scroll down to Uploaded Files and click show uploaded files
  4. Upload the HTML file
  5. Select the title of the confirmation file and copy the URL
  6. Go to the navigation and click Add URL redirect
  7. Edit the old path from /pinterest-96bfa.html (add the /)
  8. Add the new path that you copied in step 5 and save
  9. Go back to pinterest.com/website/verify and click Complete Confirmation

If you want to verify using a head tag click here for detailed instructions.

*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).

    I think Shopify may have updated recently. 🙂
    This is what I experienced in a desktop browser:

    STEP 2. Log in to your Shopify account and click Account
    Is now SETTINGS / FILES

    STEP 3. Scroll down to Uploaded Files and click show uploaded files
    UPLOAD FILES is in the top right corner

    STEP 6. Go to the navigation and click Add URL redirect
    Go to the ONLINE STORE / NAVIGATION and click Add URL redirect in the top right corner

    STEP 8. Paste copied URL from Uploaded HTML file in the OLD PATH and REDIRECT TO field.

    (I’d switch steps 7 & 8 )

    STEP 7. Edit the OLD PATH deleting everything before /pinterest-96bfa.html ( keeping the / ) delete the ?######## after .html in BOTH fields.

    I never got his to work 🙁
    I added the meta code to line 8 of theme.liquid and was done in seconds.
