Pinterest Automatic Pin


This WordPress plugin on CodeCanyon allows you to create a Pinterest account, link it to your blog, and leave it to automatically pin images from your blog posts as they’re published.

It’s as simple as that – no need to manually add pins for every post you publish, the plugin will do all that for you, and you can choose whether you want it to pin all the images from a post or even just one. Another alternative is to have it pin just the featured image.

You can find out more about the features this plugin offers by watching this video overview. Finally, it’s pricing is quite fair too with its Regular License priced at $15.

As you can see, both plugins will do the job, and you can’t underestimate the power of social media, so plugins such as these are becoming a must for any serious bloggers out there.

From our end, we’d recommend sticking to SNAP. With over 100,000 currently active installs and a strong 4.3 out of 5 rating on the WordPress plugin repository, it’s clear that SNAP has got a lot to offer, and in the end, you can use it for a lot more than just Pinterest.

  9. Thanks for the time taken to make this post but its quite unfortunate the free version of snap doesn’t allow free pinterest service. And IFTTT is just acting up. Hope to get around this cos pinterest is just so untapped when it comes to traffic.

  10. So I finally found out to post to Pinterest from SNAP you need to buy the Pro version for $50 a year!! Are they insane??? There’s no contest. That’s a complete disgrace!!! Code Canyon here I come. Uninstall SANP!

    1. I agree with Alyona here… Niki, what’s wrong with investing $50 a year, AND supporting the plugin authors at the same time?

  11. Question, the Pinterest keeps saying API Not Found – and I have a API, I just cannot figure out where to put it.

  12. yes it is important to post your online images on pinterest , auto posting may cause some problem especialy when the images had a small size
