Business Access lets advertisers and agencies easily manage the employees and partners who work on their Pinterest account. Advertisers and agencies can use Business Access to: 

  • Add employees and partners to their ad accounts 
  • View who has access to their account and what permissions they have 
  • Request access to an ad account
  • Create ad groups
  • Business Access uses a two-tiered permission system so you can control and view what access each of your employees and partners have. The first level is where you add employees or partners to your business account and assign them roles. The second level is where you assign permissions to give employees and partners specific levels of access to your ad accounts. 

    Before getting started with Business Access

    To use Business Access, you first need to Get a business account. You’ll be responsible for adding employees and partners to Business Access. Once added, you can allow other people to manage permissions within your account.  

    To provide an employee or partner with access, they will also need to have a Pinterest business account.
