eBay Video Upload: How to Add Videos to Your eBay Listings and eBay Store | eBay Seller Guide 2022

Last Updated on June 8, 2022 by

As eCommerce evolves, sellers are constantly looking for new and better ways to showcase their brand and products with listing content that elevates the online shopping experience for customers. Because rich-content listings are more engaging, more expressive, and offer more ways for shoppers to be wowed by the products. As a result, the giant eCommerce platform eBay unveiled a new feature “Video Upload” for their sellers for a better customer experience. The new video upload feature will allow sellers to add a video of between 60-120 seconds in length to their product listings that showcase their products. In this article, we will guide you on how to add a video to your eBay listings.

Before showing you the entire process, we will discuss a few important things which are necessary to take into account before adding a video to your eBay listing.

Why do you need to add a video for your eBay listing?

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then definitely a video is worth of million words because it adds an extra dimension to the products. While a few high-quality images are enough to sell your products, having a short video added extra value to your products. Your customers can see how large the product is in real life, they can see its scale, how it looks in natural lighting, etc.

How many videos you can add to a single listing on eBay?

For eBay, you can only have one single video per listing, but the good news is that once you’ve uploaded that video, you can use it on multiple listings.

What things do you need to consider?

Before uploading your video to your eBay listings, you need to take into account the below things

  • The maximum supported video size is 150 MB
  • The maximum upload resolution is 1080p
  • Supported output resolutions are 240p, 360p, 480p, and 720p
  • MP4 file types- MPEG-4 Part 10 or Advanced Video Coding (MPEG-4 AVC)
  • Providing links to YouTube or other video platforms is not supported
  • Listings with variations do not support videos

Now, let’s dive into the process of how you can add a video to your eBay listings.

Step 1: First, log in to your eBay account. After login into your account, you can see the first page of your eBay account like the below image.

Step 2: After that, Go to the My eBay tab then scroll down and click on the Selling option from the drop-down.

Step 3: It’ll redirect you to the eBay Dashboard page. Here, you will find the Listing tab in the top left corner. Click on the Listing menu and then click Active.

Step 4: Now, Go to the products for which you want to add the videos. After that, select “Edit” from the arrow section and got the product’s backend by clicking on the Edit option.

Step 5: From the product’s backend, you are able to see the Try new listing tool option in the top right corner. First, click the Try the new listing tool and after that click on the Switch listing tool to change your old listing interface to the new listing.

Step 6: Now, Go to the photo & video section and then click on the Add video option.

Step 7: Now, upload your product video from your computer. It will take some time to upload. 

Step 8: Once the video has been uploaded, you will need to click Revise with displayed fees to update your video on eBay Listing.

Step 9: When your video will be uploaded successfully it will show as the second image on your product page.

Once your video is uploaded, it will be reviewed and posted to your listing within 48 hours. However, it can take up to seven business days to review and post a product video during occasional peak periods. Buyers will be able to view your video after the successful review.

To sum up, adding a video is to help you deliver more engaging shopping experiences to your current and new buyers. It also makes you stand out from the others. So, add a video to your eBay listing by following our given instructions and moving your business to the next level. We hope that you understand the whole process clearly.
