    They think that converting the Pinterest account to a Business account will solve the issue but it is not guaranteed you will be allowed to add videos to your account.

    The first thing you need to understand is, You can not use all features of Pinterest in some countries. That’s why you are not allowed by Pinterest to upload a video.

    2. Please is there a problem with Pinterest app? I have not been able to log into my account and even the website. It keeps giving me error messages for over a month now. I have tried everything possible to no avail. It’s been quite terrible for me please help. Thanks.

      1. To my knowledge, you have been suspended for doing something wrong or if you did not do anything against the Pinterest guideline then you can contact them for help and they will see your activities. If everything is okay then you will be allowed to log in again.
