What is the Pinterest Conversion API? A short definition.

1 minute reading time

Pinterest Conversions API is a server-to-server connection that enables advertisers to send conversion data directly to Pinterest from their website or app. This method offers advantages over relying solely on the Pinterest Tag:

  • Improved Tracking Reliability: The API bypasses potential limitations of browser cookies, ensuring conversions are accurately attributed to your Pinterest Ads campaigns.
  • Privacy-Focused: It allows you to send hashed customer data, respecting user privacy while still enabling conversion measurement.
  • Complementary Approach: While the Pinterest Tag remains valuable, the Conversions API offers an alternative method for more robust tracking.

Overall, the Pinterest Conversions API provides a reliable and privacy-conscious way for advertisers to track conversions from their Pinterest Ads campaigns.
