Many Youtube creators have their shopify storefront displayed on their channel, but I cannot figure out how to do this. Granted, my channel is relatively new with only 70 subscribers so far.

can you share the link or the screenshot of the same to understand what exactly it is?

Hi @Coachjayci!

 

As mentioned by @soleseriouss below can you share a screenshot as an example as I am not aware of such an option for YouTube.

 

Is it possible you're referring to setting up YouTube Shopping? With YouTube Shopping, you can upload your store to YouTube and customers can buy your products while they watch your YouTube videos.

You can learn how to set this up for your YouTube by following along with our help tutorial here.  Please note, you will first need to set up the Google sales channel before setting this up. More on the Google sales channel here at this page.

 

Speaking of YouTube, we have a great blog about marketing on YouTube here if you're interested to learn more!

This was extremely helpful! I think screenshots, links, and adding a way to shop your store(Utube Shopping as stated specifically) would be such a good way to advertise!  Thanks so much for sharing these and the links!

Thank you

I just watched a youtube channel demonstrating how this can be done but a few steps were missing. https://youtu.be/cJfxTbCG7RI

I now realise I was looking at something hosted by Spring and not Shopify. Im not sure if that is what you are referring to.

Those two responses combined are a top-notch way of adding your shop info and products to your channel for some solid advertising! The fact that your channel is new and you already have 70 subscribers is really good, congrats on all your efforts, that's super cool! What's your channel's name? I'd love to check it out!

Hi @Coachjayci 

The two key criteria to set up the Shopify store front on your YouTube channel is - 

 

  • Your YouTube channel must have a minimum of 1000 subscribers.
  • Your YouTube channel must be approved for monetization. i.e.That could be getting a total of 4000 public watch hours over 365 days or 10 million valid public Shorts views in the last 90 days.

Once your channel is monetized, then you can set up the integration by installing the Google Shopify app.

 

More information can be found here: https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/promoting-marketing/create-marketing/google/sell-on-youtube/setup

 

I also have a video about this:

Hope this helps.

 

Good luck with your YouTube channel!
