If you’re new to Buffer, hi there! We’ll walk you through the whole process, step by step..

If you’ve got an account with us already, head to your dashboard. On the left side, you’ll see an option to connect more profiles and pages. Choose Pinterest and then click the Authorize button. Buffer will do the rest and get you all set up with some posting times in place.

Create Pins and schedule Pinterest Pins with Buffer

Scheduling a Pinterest image through Buffer takes just a few clicks. The simplest method might be to install one Buffer’s handy browser extension  that makes sharing a snap.

Once you do, you should see a blue “Share Image” button as you hover over any image on a page. Here’s an example:

Click this button, or right-click on the image you’d like to share, and you’ll see a drop-down menu with the options to “Create Post” or “Save For Later.” This brings up the Buffer tab where you can choose Pinterest as your social media account of choice, then choose the board you’d like to share to.

By default, Buffer pulls in the article’s headline and link as your Pin’s description. Within our composer, you can easily crop your photos, choose the Pinterest board you’d like to share to, and add a destination link, pin title, and description.

Let’s see this scheduling feature in action:

With the Buffer browser extension installed, you’ll also be able to find great content on Pinterest and queue up a new Pin to share later. Hover over any image you see on Pinterest, and you’ll see the Buffer icon on the bottom right like so:

Click it to pull up a Buffer tab where you can choose your board and share your Pin.

The Pin will go into your queue as a scheduled post! (One note here: It won’t look quite the same as a repin from Pinterest itself; more like content you’re Pinning for the first time.)

Finally, you can also upload a new image from your computer to schedule through the Buffer dashboard.

Optimizing your Pinterest schedule

Customize the specific times and days you Pin to create unique posting schedules just for you and your Boards to streamline your workflow.
