As a Pinterest marketer and Squarespace web designer, setting up Pinterest accounts to work properly with Squarespace is one of my top priorities. Luckily for all of us, the Pinterest Squarespace integration makes this a super easy process.
In this blog post, I’ll walk you through the step by step process for claiming your website with Pinterest and setting up rich pins when using a Squarespace website.
Before you can enable rich pins on Pinterest, you have to claim your website. This process is super simple, thanks to the Squarespace Pinterest integration. Before following these simple steps, make sure you have your Pinterest for business account set up. If you need help getting your Pinterest account ready for business, this post has you covered!
Go to Settings in your Squarespace menu
Then click Connected Accounts
Select Connect Account at the top and find the Pinterest icon
Log in using your Pinterest for business account information
Select allow to authorize the connection between Squarespace and Pinterest
If you haven’t already, head to your Pinterest settings on your Pinterest account and enter in your domain.
Note: this process could take a moment to connect. If you run into issues with your domain not being claimed by Pinterest, disconnect your Pinterest account in Squarespace & try again! I personally had to do this 2-3 times before it would connect my domain.
How do you know if your Pinterest account has been connected? Look for the checkmark over the globe next to your URL in your Pinterest profile!
