  2. Click on the Share link underneath the video.

Adding the embed code to a product or page

  1. Go to the product or page:
    • For a content page, go to Content in the menu, and select whichever type of content you'd like to add the video to (for example Information Pages) and select the page you want to edit.
    • For a product category, go to Content > Product Categories in the menu and select a category.
    • For a product, go to Products > View All Products in the menu, search for a SKU and select it.
  2. Scroll down to the Content section (for product categories and content pages) or Description (for products), and click on the Source Code tab.
  3. Paste the iframe code into the editor section and save.
  4. The video will now be embedded into that content on the website.

 

YouTube videos and eBay

eBay does not support the new embed code. If the product description will be listed on eBay or you want to embed a video in an eBay Design template, you will need to use the old embed code. You can generate this code by going to this site.
