This is in an effort to pitch retailers interested in Pinterest marketing on how being on the platform can help actual conversions. These include the ability to build custom shopping catalogs, product pins and improved re-targeting.
Retailers deemed worthy by Pinterest will receive extra promotion on the site.
Pinterest is launching a verified merchant program it says will help users “discover and buy from trustworthy brands.” Retailers that are accepted into the program will have their products eligible for distribution within dedicated Pinterest shopping features such as Shop the Look pins or related product carousels.
Verified merchants will get “Verified” badges on their profile and product pins. Their product pins will also show product availability and pricing info. Other front-end benefits will include a special shop tab on their profile that makes it easier for users to see what they sell.
On the back end, verified merchants will receive early access to the Pinterest marketing insights tool, which helps measure the total sales impact of paid and organic pins.
