With shop video, you can upload a video about your shop and creative process directly to your About section within your shop's settings on a web browser.
People come to Etsy to shop from other creative people. Shop video can help you share the story of your business with others in the Etsy community.
Consider giving a peek at the process of making your items or curating your Etsy shop. The video can help to highlight what you do and can create more confidence with potential buyers.
In the Sell on Etsy app
Go to Settings > Shop settings and scroll down to Shop video.

- Do you have production partners?
- What inspires you?
