Upload videos to your listings

Inspire, educate, and help make the sale with videos on your listings.

Bring your listings to life with videos

When you’ve got a lot to say about your products, text and images don’t always cut it. With videos on your listings, you can bring your products to life and capture what images can’t. 

Buyers can see your videos on the View Item page of the eBay app. Videos appear right after the first image in your gallery, and give you a new way to captivate, inspire, and help close the sale.

Benefits of adding videos to your listings

Videos can act as your 24/7 salesperson, engaging with potential buyers, answering their most common questions, and showcasing your products. 

  • Stand out from the competition with compelling video content

  • Deliver a more engaging shopping experience to current and new buyers

  • Help prevent common buyer issues and returns

  • Give buyers confidence in the condition and quality of your products

Get the most out of your videos

You can only add one video to a listing, so it’s important to choose the right content to make your video count.

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach. The right kind of video depends on what you’re listing and what resonates with your buyers. Consider common questions, pain points, or reasons your buyers might hesitate, and use videos to: 

Let your products speak for themselves

Use videos to capture features, unique characteristics, or different functions. You can show in detail what your product can do, capture full 360 degree views, and demonstrate different versions, colors, or sizes. 

Answer buyers’ most common questions

Videos are the perfect format to provide instructions and installation guides, demonstrate fit and sizing, or explain any defects or damages. When you show what to expect up front you’re more likely to have happy customers and fewer returns.

Share the vision behind your products

Your listings are more than just products. They’re solutions to common problems, inspiration for creative pursuits, or tools to finish that DIY project. Use videos to inspire by showing how your items become part of—and improve—peoples’ lives and projects. 

Build trust in your products and brand

Videos let you show what goes on behind the scenes to create or source top quality products. Demonstrate your refurbishment process, showcase your products’ authenticity, or highlight the quality of the materials you use. 

Tell the story behind your product

Sometimes it’s the story behind a product that makes the sale. Use videos to tell the story, and help potential buyers connect with you and your products.
