If you are trying to sell an item on eBay, then a video showing the product in use can really help. Something as simple as using your smartphone to show the item from different angles will work.
If you get more adventurous, you can put together a video showing the features and benefits to potential customers. So, let’s say, I’m trying to sell a USB Desk Fan. I already have my video up on YouTube, what do I do now?
Displaying a product video on your ebay listing – first, YouTube
Under the video, click on Embed.
I also like to untick “Show video title and player actions”. This is just a personal preference of mine. It means the video loses the text on the top left hand side of the frame and keeps the picture clear.
Go to your ebay listing
Scroll down to the bottom where you would normally put the item description and select the HTML tab.
Bear in mind, that you would also have more written text in this box with details of your item for sale. For simplicity, I’ve just left the box empty.
Click on “Preview listing” to check that your video is working.
You can now return to the ebay listing and add more description and information before saving and putting your item up for sale.
