We’re excited to announce the latest social sharing feature for all stores using V11, our Pinterest share button!

Pinterest has quickly become the biggest social media darling in recent history, having overtaken established sites like LinkedIn and Google+ to become the third most-visited social site in the US, behind only Facebook and Twitter. Even more, several brands are starting to notice a huge spike in referral traffic from passionate Pinterest users.

In other words, Pinterest is hot right now.

That’s why, in our ongoing dedication to keep your business ahead of the curve, we’re excited to announce that your customers can now pin products directly from your product pages. All they have to do is click the Pinterest button, located alongside your other social sharing options, and just like that, your products can be added to any Pinterest board imaginable.

Here’s what it looks like in action:

Ready to start using this cool new tool? Here’s what you need to do:
  • If you already have your Share Buttons enabled, you're all set! The Pinterest button will now automatically appear for you.
  • If you've yet to enable your Share Buttons, simply head to Inventory > Products > Settings and click the "Enable Share Button" box.
Please note that this tool is only available if you’re using V11 of our software. If you need to upgrade from a previous version, you can do so by visiting my.volusion.com.

We hope that this latest release will help your business march towards heightened social success. And while you’re busy pinning your heart out, be sure to check out the Volusion Pinterest page! We’ve got tons of cool resources and inspirations for the busy entrepreneur.

Happy selling!
