Pinterest business profile is free, it allows you to access Pinterest Analytics and other tools that help grow your professional presence on Pinterest. Business profiles can be linked to a personal Pinterest account so you can easily switch between business and personal. You can link up to 4 business profiles to a personal Pinterest account.
If you’re creating a business account to access an ad account, we recommend you use your work email address and your real name instead of your business name. This helps advertisers identify and validate the people who have access to their account. Select Other for “Business type.”
Adding a new business profile while logged into a personal account will create a linked account. You’ll be able to log in to your business profile with the same login info as your personal account.
