Add Videos to Your Product Descriptions

Adding videos to your product description

After many requests, we’ve built a tool that allows you to easily upload YouTube videos to your product descriptions. You can now showcase up to 3 videos about your product or company. Perhaps this includes a video on how to use your product, your product being used by children, or a video review from a mommy blogger.


Why does this matter?

Video has been shown to increase conversion rates. While images are great to understand the size of a product and everything that it’s included, a video can give customers a further explanation on how exactly it’s used. One study found that it’s more likely a product will sell if videos are created for them. In fact, 73% of consumers are more likely to make a product purchase if they watch a video explaining the product first. This means, if 100 people came to your product page, 73 of those people are more likely to convert if they watch a video about your product.

How to add video to your product description

On your seller dashboard, click “Products”. From there, select the product you’d like to add video for. Once you are in the product upload section, scroll down and you will see a section called “Video Links”.

Under video links, you can add up to 3 YouTube links separated by commas. At this time, we only support YouTube as the video format. After adding a link, you will see them populate under “Your Videos”.

Once the videos have been added, make sure to click “Publish” to declare them as live and officially add them to your products. You can preview your videos and make sure they have been added by clicking “Preview” on the right-hand side of the product upload above the “Publish” button.
