How to: Add Pinterest button to Storenvy products
However, I discovered this little trick while I was working on the html behind my Storenvy store and I thought you might want to know.
Pinterest allows you to add a button to your website to encourage people to pin what they find there. Obviously if you are an online seller its a great idea to have a button next to all your products and you can do that through this Pinterest page (scroll down to the ' "Pin It" Button for Websites' section)
However, you will quickly notice that if you use that page you are required to type the URL of the product page and the product image - this means you would have to make a button for each and every one of your products. Not only would that be time consuming, you don't actually have access to the html for individual product pages on Storenvy.
But you can still add a Pinterest button and the good news is that you only need to make the button once!
You need to edit the html directly of your "Product" page.
Find the section that looks like this:
Then copy and paste this section of code directly after it:
It should end up looking like this:
