According to Shareaholic, Pinterest referral rate is 3.6%. PR Daily reported that in the month of January, Pinterest had over 11 million unique visitors. Shopify reported referral traffic from Pinterest to Shopify stores (25,000+ online stores) is equal to traffic coming from Twitter. Of that traffic, shoppers are 10% more likely to make a purchase compared to those who were referred from other social sites.
