To upload multiple videos in one go, use the Bulk create Pins tab in your Pinterest Settings. This tool is available to selected video creators and lets you upload up to 200 videos in one go from a spreadsheet that contains information about your videos.

Use this sample spreadsheet to get started. Each row in the spreadsheet represents the metadata for one video. You can pre-validate the spreadsheet to avoid issues during upload. You can also set a scheduled publish date to publish your video Pins at a preferred time.
