A Zap that goes from Pinterest to Instagram (in this order)

Can we post to Pinterest first then to Instagram? I already setup a Zap for the opposite way (Instagram first then to Pinterest), but I am experiencing challenges creating a Zap that goes from Pinterest to Instagram. Can we do this?

Hi @Lindz_ 

Good question.

Which Pinterest Zap trigger are you trying to use?

Hi there, @Lindz_, welcome to the Community!  

It is possible, but only if you have a Instagram Business account as the non-business Instagram app doesn’t have any “add photo” type of actions currently.

So, if you do have an Instagram Business account, then you could use Pinterest’s New Pin trigger to see the new pins you add, and then follow that up with the Publish Photo (Instagram for Business) action. 

That said, this sort of two-way syncing between apps could potentially cause a Zap loop! 😬 So I’d recommend checking out our Zap is stuck in a loop guide to find out more Zap loops and how to prevent them.

Hope that helps! 🙂
