|Report Conversion Event
|Report events directly to Pinterest. Data shared can power Pinterest solutions that will help evaluate ads effectiveness and improve content, targeting, and placement of future ads.
Pinterest doesn’t know if aonversions reported by the Pinterest Tag and conversions reported by the API are the same. Because Pinterest recommends using both the API for Conversions and the Pinterest Tag, they automatically deduplicate events to avoid double-counting of events sent through multiple sources.
For example, imagine that a user triggers an
add to cart event and the tag reports the data using
123 as the event ID, and your web server later reports the conversion to the API, also using
123 as the event ID. They’ll look at the event IDs to confirm they correspond to the same event. If they do, Pinterest won’t count the conversion twice, which helps you report conversions using both the tag and the API without having to worry about over-counting conversions.
You should use deduplication for any events they expect to be reported by multiple sources across the API and the Pinterest Tag.
Conversion Events must meet the following requirements to be deduped:
- Events have non-empty and non-null values for
action_sourcefor events is not
offline(for example, events that occurred in the physical world, like in a local store) where the
action_sourceparameter is one of –
- The duplicate events arrive within 24 hours of initial, unique events.
Starting from Jan 1, 2023, Pinterest introduced the Limited Data Processing setting per the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). This flag helps you comply with CCPA.
You’re responsible for complying with user opt-outs, as well as identifying the user’s state of residency when you implement the Limited Data Processing setting.
This setting can impact campaign performance and targeting use cases. Pinterest recommends that you use the Limited Data Processing setting on a per-user basis for best results.
LDP relies on 3 fields and is enabled only when all 3 combinations are met, if one of them is not met then LDP is disabled / ignored.
