Story Pins are a work in progress and aren’t available to everyone yet. If you're in the US, UK, Canada, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Australia, France, India, Indonesia or Japan, you can request access to Story Pins in your Account settings and then select Request Access to Story Pins. If you're not in these countries, you can request access by filling out this form.

Please be patient while we review your request. You’ll receive an update in your notifications about your request in 1-2 days. We take into account a variety of factors including (but not limited to) previously published content, country location and account type when granting access.

 

If you have a Pinterest business account, you can use Story Pins to record multiple videos and add images, lists and custom text in a single Pin. Like other Pins, Story Pins will stay on your boards once you’ve published them. Once you’ve published at least one Story Pin, the Pin will be displayed on your business profile at the top of your Created tab along with all of your Story Pins.

You can use Story Pins to:

  • Create a step-by-step guide, project or recipe

  • Upload multiple short videos with additional descriptive text or text overlay

  • Customise the colours and fonts in your Pin

  • Improve your targeting with topic tagging

  • Curate a collection of products

  • Tell a story in a brand new way

Before you get started

Before you can create a Story Pin, you need to review and agree to the Creator Code. The Creator Code is a pledge to create Story Pins that follow our Community Guidelines and make Pinterest a positive and inspiring place for everyone. If a Story Pin violates our guidelines, you may lose access to Story Pins.

When you start creating a Story Pin, a prompt will appear asking you to accept. Click I agree to continue creating your Story Pin. If you do not agree, you will not be able to create Story Pins on Pinterest. You only need to accept the Creator Code once.

Edit Story Pins

After you’ve published a Story Pin, you can edit the board you published it to, topic tags and details. You can also delete an existing page, add a new page or reorder existing pages. You won’t be able to edit the content of an existing page. You can edit a Story Pin up to 2 weeks after publication.

You can save one Story Pin on Android phones, store up to 3 GB of Story Pins in draft form on iPhones and save unlimited drafts on desktop. You can come back to your device later to finish a draft and publish it to a board. You cannot edit a draft across different devices.

You may notice on some published Story Pins that comments and photos are disabled by default. You can turn on or off the ability for people to comment on and add photos to a published Story Pin at any time.
