YouTube Video Gallery
Substitute product pictures with videos and create video galleries.
If a picture can tell a thousand words, a product video can bring a thousand purchases. Considering that video now appears in 70% of the top 100 search result listings, and that viewers are anywhere from 64-85% more likely to buy after watching a product video – this is one marketing force you cannot afford to ignore.
The YouTube add-on allows adding videos to the products and searching for products with video in your store.
— A video from YouTube can be placed on the product page as the main image.
— Editable position of the icon with video.
— If you want to change the link to the video, you can simply change the video code (qTsxQlDxQHE).
— Bulk YouTube code editing is available both on the products list page and via the Exim CSV.
— The new Gallery page allows your customers to view all the videos in your store. They can purchase products right from the Gallery.
— The Video Gallery block can be placed on any page of your website.
— Each product with a video has its own video page.
— We have created a filter for products with a video for customer’s convenience.
