How do I create a Pinterest application?

Please review the separate help page on why you need a Pinterest application.

IMPORTANT: If you have an existing Pinterest application that you previously used in the legacy version of our service, then use that Pinterest application. The same Pinterest application works in both the legacy and the new version of the service. Just edit your Pinterest application at Pinterest.com and change the redirect URI to the one listed in Step 11 below.

To create a Pinterest application, please follow the steps below:

  1. In SocialOomph, use Social Networks, Network Apps, Add New Network App, Add Pinterest App in the menu.
  2. Open a new browser tab and log in to your profile at pinterest.com.
  3. Then, in the browser address bar, type in developers.pinterest.com and press Enter.
  4. In the top menu, click the Apps entry.
  5. Click Apply for App button.
  6. Do not change any other setting and do not put content into any other fields if we did not tell you to do so below.
  7. Fill out the Name field.
  8. Choose the "None! ..." radio button.

  10. Select "No" in the "Do you intend to show data..." radio button.
  11. Fill out the "Describe how you will use..." firle d with "I will be publishing simple pins to the boards that I own. Nobody else will be using this app to publish anything to Pinterest. The app will only publish pins."
  12. Click the Create button.
  13. At this point you are done at developers.pinterest.com. You will now have to wait for Pinterest to review and approve your Pinterest application.
