Hi, I have a problem with Pinterest automation — everytime when I reconnect it, Zapier announces me that “Pinerest account is expired”. Any ideas on how to solve this problem? Thanks in advance!

Hi @MSadeghi ,

Thanks for letting us know and so sorry you are encountering this error! I see that Shalyn in Support has added you as an impacted user of this bug, which will ensure you are notified when it has been resolved. 

We do not have an ETA on this fix, but I do see that the team is actively working on it. I know that’s not the answer you had hoped for, but please let us know if you have any additional questions!

Meanwhile, I checked other automation platforms such as Automate.io and Integromat.

Automate.io doesn’t offer Pinterest integrations at all and Integromat is waiting for approval on their application to the new developer progam.

It seems that the Pinterest API is strongly underdeveloped. Unless Pinterest does some updates, I’m afraid that this is an issue that will keep popping up.

Disappointing...

Same issue here.

I got notified that there was a possible error. When I checked the details I noticed ‘Authorization failed’ so I tried reconnecting the apps. It didn’t work. Each time, I keep getting this ‘rate limit’ reason but I only use this zap 4 times per day with 2,5 hours in between.

This is really an issue because my client is expecting a consistent posting schedule. That’s why I use Zapier in the first place. As a paying customer, I hope to see a fast solution to this problem.

Could you please unmark this thread as ‘Solved’ because it it’s clearly not...

Best regards

Hello @avrfun, @caribeconnection, and @Jaykay


Our Support team has provided the following answer:  

Looks like Pinterest is giving us the authentication error because of a rate limiting issue. Pinterest has enacted strict limits to the number of times each day that we can make requests to their systems for new data. Whenever the limit is reached, they will return these error messages. There isn't much we can do about this as the limits have been set from their end.
 

This change can also be found here on Pinterest’s developer doc: https://developers.pinterest.com/docs/api/overview/?#rate-limiting

Hi @Swedenborg, I’m sorry that you’re running into this issue with your Pinterest Zaps.

We’re still looking into this one and I can see that Clint from the Support Team has already added you to the list of affected users, which means that we’ll send you and email when we have an update.

@Danvers Thank you for your response. We’ve been told already that a solution for this issue is pending and that we will be informed once there is an update. As @zaxarov mentioned, there hasn’t been any update in 6 months. Which is really frustrating. As paying customers, we deserve to be informed about what is happening.

Could you please clarify which steps exactly have been taken by the Zapier team to find the source of this issue? What are the blocking issues to work on this bug? Why does it take 6 months to be able to come up with a solution?

Hi @PJ_Decoster, I completely understand your frustration here and I’ll do my best to address your questions. 

 

The issue has appeared to have a few different causes as time has gone on. We have monitored a few different measures, including how many users were running into to the same error (which we can see from our logs) and when. 

We have taken some steps to try and remedy the situation, including working with Pinterest to make sure that the Zapier integration is on the most up to date API (that’s the bit of code that lets other apps talk to Pinterest). 

I don’t have an ETA on when we’ll be able to fix this issue, which I know is frustrating and I’m sorry about that. We do know that this issue is having a bigger impact on our users because of the new ‘oh foo’ message that you see when you try to connect your account. 

When we have a fix for this, we will update this thread and any folks who have been added as an affected user on the bug will get an email.

Need you to add me as an effected user as well. I’m still on my trial. 

And despite what Grammerly thinks, this is a cause and effect situation, not affect.

I’m seeing both ‘account is expired’ and ‘oh, foo.’ When I go to Pinterest, connected apps shows this:

Hi,

What is happening with this? I see it’s been going on for 6 months

App stopped working a few days ago and now I’m getting different errors “access is revoked” “reached limit” and now “account expired”

I am having the exact same issue since two days ago and apparently there is no fix ??


Same issue here.

Exact same issue here, same procedure. I disconnected Pinterest app from Zapier, and revoked Zapier’s access to Pinterest, hoping I could re-connect them. No luck. Same oh, foo message even if I try with 2 days interval. Really miss the Zapier - Pinterest integration.
Edit: I also find it weird that the thread is marked as solved

I still have this unsolved problem after six months since I created this post. Is there any solution in that topic?

Once you guys solved the problem, you should add Pinterest as premium apps.

Too many ppl abusing Zap to Pinterest by signup hundreds free trial account.

It’s works perfectly, I don’t mind to pay to enjoy Zap to Pinterest to the fullest.

 

Thanks

 

I’m having trouble logging in to Pinterest with Zapier (paid account) for a few days. Everything worked fine before. At the moment I receive the information: “Pinterest zbysiusp1. This account is expired. Please reconnect it hereI can't reconnect it. The Pinterest account I logged in with isn't suspended. Please help me to solve  problem. Best regards.

Hi, I’ve got the same problem here.

I also use a zapier subscription… Not really what I expected...Nice UI but this experience just kills it for me….

@avrfun 

I'm going to flag this post for the Zapier Community Team. They should have more insight on this and can escalate to the support team if needed.

Sit tight, and someone will contact you soon.

I’m experiencing the same issue. Will also be cancelling my subscription until this is rectified, as Pinterest is the ONLY integration I am using ,and therefore renders it useless since it’s not working.
