Build and manage ads with Pinterest API

Complete Pinterest ad campaign management

People on Pinterest love shopping. In fact, compared to other social media sites, Pinterest shoppers are 1.6x more likely to feel excited about shopping / browsing on Pinterest.* The Pinterest API for Ads includes a complete suite of ads management features that allow you to reach these high intent shoppers. These publicly available API features allow any approved developer to directly integrate with Pinterest to setup, run, edit, and manage Pinterest ad campaigns on external platforms — all with automation and scale. Integrate with the Pinterest API to use Pinterest’s self-service Ads Manager features within your own software, including:
  • Campaign management
  • Audience & targeting capabilities
  • Bulk ads management
  • Keyword targeting
  • Ads analytics
  • Tags and audience insights
  • Carousel ads
  • Domain catalog
