How to Get More Followers Using Pinterest Pincodes

Pinterest added a new feature – Pincodes! Pincodes [Figure 1] are a visual way to share a Pinterest account profile or a board with another Pinterest user. Remember QR codes? Are you on Snapchat and connect with other Snapchatters with your Snapcode? If you do, then Pincodes will seem familiar! A Pincode is similar to Snapchat’s Snapcodes.

Pincodes are an image created by the Pinterest user from their profile or an individual Pinterest board. To create a Pincode, start by logging into your own Pinterest account.

To create a Pincode for your profile:

  • Log into your Pinterest account
  • Tap on your profile image to see your profile Pincode
  • Save or screenshot the Pincode image

To generate a Pincode for your boards on desktop Pinterest:

  • Log into your Pinterest account
  • On desktop Pinterest navigate to any board
  • Click the three share dots above the board’s name
  • Select “Create Pincode”
  • Download the Pincode image

To generate a Pincode for your boards on the Pinterest app:

  • Log into your Pinterest account
  • On the Pinterest app navigate to any board
  • Click the three share dots above the board’s name
  • Tap “Create Pincode”
  • Save or screenshot the Pincode image

NOTE: For Pinterest boards, you can only create a Pincode for your own boards!
Pincodes allow Pinterest users to share a board with others very easily. If you are a retailer, you can add a collection of products to buy, and then share the Pincode in your store or on your website.

This is an easy way to get more followers. Users can go directly to your Pinterest without having to search for your username! Consider adding your Pincode to your LinkedIn profile, as your Twitter profile image, or share on your website! Pincodes can be saved to any mobile device. TO connect with another user, simply show the Pincode. The other user opens their Pinterest app, and scans the Pincode to go right your profile or board!
