How to Add Videos to WooCommerce Product Gallery

Are you looking for a way to add videos to your online store? If so then you’ve come to the right place. Because today we have a comprehensive guide on how to add videos to the WooCommerce product gallery.

Why add videos to your WooCommerce product gallery?

In most cases, the product image is the first thing that helps buyers to purchase the product. But sometimes certain types of products need to be complemented by a video. Even though text can provide descriptive information about a product, all of the text can be summarized in a video which can be accessible to anyone.

Besides the visual look, videos add lots of benefits when it comes to increasing the conversion rates. Because compared to text, most consumers prefer to watch a video and make an informed decision. Not only that, but product-related videos also improve your website’s SEO ranking. When visitors watch the video and spend more time on your site, then long exposure establishes trust and informs search engines about the content within your website.

In short, adding videos helps a lot to increase conversions in those products in which a video can better convey its attributes, uses, and characteristics. We hope that this gave you a slight idea of the importance of adding videos to your website. Now let’s see how we can add the videos to the WooCommerce product gallery.
