How to create a Pinterest business account

Pinterest for business — setting up your account.

Create a new business account that’s not connected to any other Pinterest accounts.

To create a new business account, the email you use to sign up must not already be in use on an existing Pinterest account.

Create a new business account

If you’re an employee or an agency partner creating a business account to access your company’s or client’s ad account, we recommend using your professional email and your own name rather than the name of your business. This helps the owner of the account identify and validate the people who have access to their account.

Creating an account means you accept Pinterest’s Business Terms of Service(opens in a new window) and Privacy Policy(opens in a new window).

If you’ve already created a linked business account, you will not be able to convert a personal account into a business account. You’ll need to close your linked business account before you can convert an account.
