How to Bulk Upload Images from your Website to Pinterest

Pinterest is Awesome

Pinterest has a feature that allows business accounts to connect a website's RSS feed and auto-post to a Pinterest board.

Wait for up to 24 hours to see your first Pins created in the board. As your RSS feed is updated, Pins will continue to be made on a daily schedule.

Create an RSS Feed

Pinterest currently supports RSS 2. and RSS 1. (RDF) formats. They don’t support Atom.

Create an RSS Feed that resides at a path in your website for example at /feed.xml that will be used in the next steps.

Example Feed
