How to Sell on Pinterest with SellPin

Many of you have been curious on how to sell something on Pinterest or if it was even worth while to set up shop there.  The problem with selling on Pinterst is that although it allows you to put a sell ribbon on your product, it still doesn’t allow you to set up shop or take payments. Well, I stumbled upon a new tool called SellPin. Basically, if you can pin it on Pinterest, you can sell it on SellPin.

SellPin is a buy and sell marketplace similar to Amazon or eBay that allows you to sell tangible goods on Pinterest. What SellPin does is it imports your existing Images/Pins/Pinboards as well as the text descripions under them and then in seconds allows you to put a price on your own images/pins from Pinterest and pin them back into Pinterest for sale. They handle the payment, security and the transaction.
