Difference between repinning on Pinterest and creating a new pin?
Posted: Wednesday, December 19, 2018 11:33:50 PM
Hi all,

When promoting other peoples Zazzle items as a referral, does it really matter, traffic and sales wise, if we just repin their product onto our boards by using the Pinterest-icon on their listing or create a 'new' pin for their products, like uploading the picture, write a description, adding our referralcode manually etc.?

Repinning takes way less time, but I can imagine a new created pin would perform better?

Is a repinned pin also a rich pin?

Thanks.

Primary is that, when repinning, your referral ID won't be attached.

@Colorwash; is that true?
I checked some pins that I pinned from Zazzle and when I hoover of the link it shows my referral ID !!

I believe Colorwash is correct and that they are showing your referral ID because you pinned the pin, but if you pin one from someone else’s Pinterest account as a repin then it will not have your referral ID. Maybe test it by going to Pinterest and re-pinning a zazzle pin and then check for your ID.

I can see that there might be a slight chance that if you repin, the original pinner will see that their pin has been repinned and who did it, so there is an off chance they will look at your boards and follow or repin in response. Sorry for the run on sentence.

Got it, but what i meant in my question is an item that I pin from the Zazzle website to Pinterest, so NOT repinning it.

Ok. So it should retain your referral ID and beyond that I am not tech savvy enough to tell you the difference between using the share from product link and creating one from scratch.
I keep hearing about rich pins and I have no idea what they are and haven’t bothered to look it up. Idea

Well, I did look it up but not all info say the same so that is why i hoped to get some more info here.
Thanks for the reply though.

Rich pins are thought to encourage sales because they include extra details about products such as price.

When I pin from Zazzle, my referral goes with it.

But, if that pin is repinned by someone else to one of their boards,
is my referral lost?

I am going to test it right now by repinning one of your pins and I will see what the link says after that and come back to report in a minute.

Okay I saved your racoon bandit valentine pin to my Zazzle board and all of your hashtags and your description were saved but your referral id wasn't saved. So repins do not help us get referrals.

That's the bad news. The good news is that we might still get sales from them.

Someone "saved" (which I believe is just an alternative term for repinned) one of my pins.
My original is here: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/332562753730804938/ and the saved one is here: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/623607879631247370/
In both cases my referral id and tracking code are there. I'm not sure how / why my experience is different.

Shelli, Thanks for testing. I would be happy with a sale, with our with out the referral, but it looks like, the only way to get a referral is, if it is clicked on to visit the product itself, and purchased (or something else is purchased during 30 days).
Since many of my pins have 0-2 Clicks shown, it is not good news. Impressions and views at Pinterest are nice but I like to see Clicks.



HightonRidley - I don't know why your results are different. How can you tell if the tracking code is still on the pin that was saved? I could not see it on the pin Shelli did for me.

When you hover your cursor over the pin you can look in the bottom left corner of the screen and see the link you are going to click.

Actually I was wrong and when I click into the pin and hover on it I do see your referral id... so I apologize for the misinformation above! I was hovering on the preview of the pin instead of the actual pin. :::headsmack:::

whoops!
