Pinterest Ads Integration

In this article, we’ll integrate Pinterest with Y42.



Authentication: OAuth
Settings: Historical Date selection
Schema type: Fixed
Update Type: Full import


Before starting the OAuth process, you need to provide your Pinterest Advertisier ID.

In order to find this, your Pinterest account first needs to be a business account.

Once this is set up, navigate to Ads > Reporting. Here you can find your 12-digit advertiser ID in the URL
Copy and paste this ID into the Advertiser field within Y42. Now you’re ready to integrate your Pinterest data.
OAuth doesn’t share password data but instead uses authorization tokens to prove an identity between you and the service provider. OAuth is an authentication protocol that allows you to approve one application interacting with another on your behalf without giving away your password. For instance, when you tell Pinterest that it’s OK for another application or website to access your profile. To sum up, you only need to have an existing account to authorize the access.


Import Settings

By default, the historical date will be set to one year ago. Refer to your own datasource to decide from which exact date you would want to retrieve data.

Updating your data

For this integration, you can schedule full imports. Every time the source updates it will fully sync all your data. You have the option of scheduling updates by the month, weeks, days, and even by the hour.
