  1. Hello Kathy!!!! You made it so easy!!! Thanks a lot!

  2. Works great… but I was wondering… if the product your validating isnt a product on one of your boards, how does it know what board to post the product on, or am I missing something ?

  3. Thank you very much Kathy

  4. O.M.G. Kathy. I love you!!! This was soooo easy and I just spent a half hour on Pinterest trying to figure it out, having never heard of oembed. The other choices were me trying to "insert" metadata into the <head> tag on my product page. Mind you, I am a graphic designer with web experience so I know what that is … but I digress. This was super quick and easy and bless you gurl!!!

  5. Hi – thanks for the video. I have a shopify shop and did all the above and got validated by Pinterest, but, when I look at my pins I do not see the price on them like you showed on your pic. Any suggestions?

  6. You were so right. This was so easy and I had been overthinking it πŸ™‚

  7. This was so simple and so helpful! Thank you!

  8. Pinterest doesn't support buy-able pins anymore, take this video down; it is now fake news

  9. Sheesh!! I can't thank you enough! I had no idea which option to choose for the end of my URL. Thank you for saving me stress and maybe tears.

  10. Useful video, thank you

  11. Thank you so much. Great video, it worked well!

  12. Hello Kathy, interesting this video
    I have a question, before doing what you explain,
    you connected your pinterest account with your shopify site from the sales channel in the admin shopify?

    Or did you insert the metadata in your store manually?

    my problem is that I am in a country that I can not have pinterest as a sales channel, that's why I can not connect pinterest with my store from the shopify admin

    Thank you

  13. Thank you so much @Kathy Weller. That helps a lot and saved huge time to find it my self.

  14. Hi! I just want to ask, do I have to claim the website on pinterest before I can start posting my shopify products to pinterest?

  15. informative Video. Thanks For Sharing.

  16. Hi when using the validator you said put .oembed at the end. I noticed it has 4 options, if you have a Shopify store why wouldn't you put shopify at the end of the url? Also can you make a video to show where the rich pins show up at after it's validated? I'm new to this and I've seen a gazillion videos on how to enable rich pins but no one talks about what happens after it's enabled or what's the next step. Thank you for your time

  17. You're a life saver mam. This video was exactly I was looking for. Thank you ! Looking forward to more such valuable information.

  18. OMG SO LOVE U!!!!!! I needed this….quick question, once this is done its on Pinterest forever and ppl will see these while scrolling? Or will I have to make them noticeable from time to time? If that makes sense

  19. Could you do a video on how to verify shopify store on pinterest? It would be really helpful. Thank you

  20. Thanks Kathy, that was just what I was looking for.

  21. kathy, do we need to validate for every single product, or it's just a one-time thing?

  22. First! Who has a follow up question to anything in the video? Let me know!
