How can we help you?

Shop Video

With shop video, you can upload a video about your shop and creative process directly to your About section within your shop's settings on a web browser. You can also use the Sell on Etsy app for Android or iOS. (You'll need iOS 9.3 or above.)

People come to Etsy to shop from other creative people. Shop video can help you share the story of your business with others in the Etsy community. Consider giving a peek at the process of making your items or curating your Etsy shop. The video can help to highlight what you do, and can create more confidence with potential buyers.

In the Sell on Etsy app, go to Settings > Shop settings and scroll down to Shop video.

On a web browser, go to Shop Manager, click the pencil icon next to your shop name under Sales Channels, and scroll down to the About section.

A good shop video should:

Introduce yourself

  • What do you do?
  • When did you open your shop?
  • Where are you based?
  • What is your workspace like?

Demo your process

Show off your items

  • If you’re a maker, what is your process like?
  • If you sell vintage, show some of your favorite pieces. What makes them special?

Try and keep it concise. A good shop video should not exceed 2 minutes.
