Why send data to Pinterest Tag using Astronomer Clickstream?
This integration can be very complicated to implement without Astronomer; the base code for each customer is unique and must be obtained from the Pinterest UI or API. If you want to track custom events, you’ll need to familiarize yourself with the Pinterest API to both locate the correct base and event tracking code as well as install it correctly into your own site. It typically needs to be added by a webmaster or developer to prevent errors.
Integrating Pinterest with Astronomer cuts out any need for additional implementation resources, saving your development team valuable time.
