How To Show Your Pinterest Pins, Profile Or Boards On Your Website

Pinterest_Logo.pngPinterest is a great way to promote your shop and really get your products out to a wider audience. It not only allows you to pin your own products but lets other Pinterest users search or browse specific categories or keywords and pin them too, so that they can be shared and searched by all.

Please be aware that Pinterest do not support modification to their pin widgets, so you will be unable to place this widget into a table or align it on your page. Please place this widget directly on to one of your pages for best results.
