Pinterest is currently the third most popular social network in the world. With the exponential growth in users, this is a social network that can help bring in traffic for your PrestaShop store. Pinterest users create virtual boards and then pin items they like to those boards. You can make the pinning process easy for your site visitors by adding a Pin It button on your product pages. This could potentially increase the number of pins your products receive.

If you would like to sign up for Pinterest yourself, registration is still currently by invite, but you can request an invite on their registration page.

There are several modules already available for adding a Pinterest Pin It button. In this tutorial, we will walk through installing and configuring the free Pinterest module from PrestoChangeo. Once you have downloaded this free module from their site, you are ready to install the module and set up your Pinterest Pin It button.
