      As far as I know, the rich pins are for Business account only that have their websites linked. If you don’t have a website, I guess you are looking for the rich pins that lets you display price and other things right??
      The one mentioned here are for articles from website rather than for products.

        The manual on pinterest I saw examples of the rich pins exactly with Etsy. But nowhere is it written in stages where to go and where to write the code.

    I am not able to do the same. It is showing the following error for my site

    “It looks like your URL is missing some required info.”

    What do you think could be the possible error?

      I guess its because the meta structure of your website might not be correct. If you read the official announcement, it gives the details of what it expects. You should check that.
