Product videos add great detail to your product pages. Showing a video demonstration of a product increases the chances of conversions and helps clear any confusion that the potential customers have about the product. Today we are going to discuss how you can add videos to the product gallery of your WooCommerce stores.
Add Videos to WooCommerce Store
You can add product videos to WooCommerce store by using 2 methods which are as follows:
- Default Method
- WooCommerce Product Video Plugin
Let’s discuss each of the two methods and compare them in terms of usability, functionality, and customizability.
By default, you can not add videos to the WooCommerce product gallery. You can, however, still, post self-hosted videos or videos from online platforms on your product pages by using the block editor(content section) of the product page. You can add videos to your products by using the following method:
- Go to the desired block editor
- Click on the “Add Media” button
- Add the Video:
- For self-hosted videos click on “Upload File”
- For videos from online platforms click on “Insert from URL”
- The video will appear in the content section of the product page.
Pro-Tip – See the comparison table of the default and plugin methods before you leave.
