When you are on the Pinterest website, add /source/yourwebsite.com to the end of the URL. The page that appears will show you all of the pins that users have pinned directly from your website. Example: pinterest.com/source/socialmediatips.com shows the pins pinned from this website.
To add a price banner to a pin, add a $ or £ as the first thing to the pin description. Pinterest will automatically add a price to the photo as a banner in the upper left corner. NOTE: This only works when pinning to the ‘Gifts’ category.
Users are on Pinterest to find things similar to their interests, but they also want to know that what they find is going to benefit them. They want to visualize the lifestyle a product will give them. An image of the product in use does this better than just an image of the product alone.

According to an article on Social Media Today, Pinterest users are brand-focused and they are sales-ready: 43% of Pinterest members state they use Pinterest to “associate with retailers or brands”, and Pinterest referrals spend 70% more than visitors referred from non-social sites.
Pinterest has no limit to how tall your photo can be; so take advantage of this by creating photos that are tall and engaging, but are only around 540px wide. Narrow, long pins are much more eye catching than short images.
