Adding a Pinterest "Pin It" Button to product pages
Hello,

I would like help with adding a "Pin It" button from Pinterest to my products. I'm not sure how to do that. This link on Pinterest's website gives the code, but I'm not sure where I would put it for each item. http://pinterest.com/about/goodies/

The Facebook button to share a product on Facebook is already there, I would like it to be right next to the Facebook button if possible.

Thanks,

Michelle O'Hollaren

I would also love to know how to do this. I have a handful of people featuring my products on their Pinterest boards and really want to opportunity for a lot more. Thank you to anyone who can help! I no absolutely nothing about coding so I wouldn't know where to begin. Can anyone provide step by step help for a total non-techy person?

It takes one minute to set it up for all the products at once.

I just tried doing this. Thank you for the very specific directions. But now the 'related products' list shows products without thumbnail images. And I don't want the button near the cart. I want it up near the other social media buttons.
Can you help, please? Thank you.

Tabita,

Since AddThis has added Pinterest to its offerings, when will Big Commerce provide that functionality within the AddThis option selection already integrated with BC?

I have not seen or heard mention of Pinterest in any Development meetings and nothing on the calendar. The 2Qtr calendar isn't out yet so I have no idea what that is looking like yet. I do have another meeting with the Dev team tonight about upcoming work so...
Regards,
Thomas

Thomas,

AddThis sent out notices a little while ago - so, that should be a function within the AddThis platform.

An update: the code won't work in version 6, there is another variable for the image: %%GLOBAL_ZoomImageURL%%.
