Set up your business account

Whether you’re an established brand, a non-profit organization, or a blogger, you can join Pinterest for free as a business. You can make a new business account or convert your current one. 

We have two sets of terms—one for people and one for businesses. If you're using Pinterest for business purposes or as part of how you make a living, you should sign up for a business account and agree to our Business Terms of Service

Make a brand new business account:
  1. If you have a personal account, log out of it
  2. Go to Pinterest for Business and click Join as a Business
  3. Fill out details about your business and the person who'll manage the account
  4. Read and accept our Business Terms of Service and click Create Account
Convert your personal account to a business account:
  1. Log in to your account
  2. Go to Pinterest for Business
  3. Click Convert now
  4. Fill out your information and click Convert
Right now, business and personal accounts have the same features. This change won't affect your Pins, boards, and followers. If you sign up as a business, you'll get updates on future products and services we build for businesses.
