How To Add Videos To Amazon Listings With Vendor Central

Adding videos through Amazon Vendor Central is often difficult. The only way to join Vendor Central is by an invitation from Amazon.

Unfortunately, unless you're doing more than $1 million in sales with amazing customer reviews, you most likely will not be a candidate for Vendor Central, yet.

If you have a Vendor Central account, here is how you can add a video to your product listing.

  1. Upload the video to a file transfer service such as Dropbox. Once uploaded, copy the video’s link your clipboard.

2. Login to Vendor Central and click “Contact Us” in the upper right-hand corner. Chose “Images and Videos” in the first dropdown and click “Video upload issues” in the second dropdown.

3. On the "Contact Us" page:

  • Change the case title to “Upload Video”
  • In the “please describe issue” field: Paste in the link to the video from the file transfer service in step one
  • Paste in one ASIN per line underneath “Target ASINs”
  • Once you paste your ASINs, click “Submit” to submit the case

Amazon will add the video to the product listing in 24-74 hours. Amazon support will NOT notify you once the video is uploaded to your listing. You’ll have to check the listing to see if it has been added every 24 hours or so.

Once added, the video will appear on your listing alongside the product images.

What if I don’t have a Vendor Central account or brand registry?  

 The only way you can add a video to your Amazon listing without having Amazon Brand Registry is to use third-party services or platforms like Fiverr and Jungle Market.

By simply searching “add a video to Amazon listing” on Fiverr you can find multiple Amazon vendors offering this service.

This process involves using Fiverr to find Amazon vendors offering this service. Here is how:

2. Look over your potential options and pick one

Keep in mind, the price for this service can range from $95+ to $25. The difference is due to the placement of the videos.

Videos posted on the image block of your listing under your product images will cost more than videos posted on the related video short section of your product page.

 

So how does this service work?

On Amazon, sellers don’t own their listings, Amazon does. As a result, other sellers have the ability to post and list their products under your listing. This is essentially the loophole that allows you to upload videos to your Amazon listing without Brand Registry.

Amazon vendors who have the ability to upload videos offer this service to you for a fee on platforms such as Fiverr and Jungle Market. Because they have the ability to post on your listing, they will upload your video on your listing for you.

 What you'll need to post videos on Amazon through 3 party services:

  • High-quality video: in one of the following formats: 3GP, AAC, AVI, FLV, MOV, MP4, and MPEG-2.
  • Thumbnail Image: with 16:9 aspect ratio and suggested dimensions of 1920 X 1080px. JPEG and PNG are both accepted formats.
  • Video Title: with 100 characters max.
  • Synopsis or a brief overview of the video for Amazon customers.
  • Video type: How to review, advertisement, comparison, unboxing, or interview.
  • Related ASINs: This can be a single ASIN or multiple ASINs the video relates to.

 

 Amazon Product Video Guidelines

Amazon product video guidelines can be very strict. Always avoid violating their content policy and consult professionals if need be.

 

Avoid violating any of these product listing guidelines: 

  • Mentioning a competitor’s product.
  • Using Price or Promotional information, including things like saying your prices are better.
  • Time-sensitive product information, like “on sale now”.
  • Providing shipping information, including free shipping.
  • Use of hyperbole, such as “#1 seller,” or “best-selling product”.
  • Using logos, brands or company names other than your own or the product you are showing.
  • Showing web address that leads visitors away from the Amazon platform.
  • Providing customer reviews, third-party quotes, or editorial content.
  • Providing contact information outside of the Amazon platform. 

The product video must be of high quality:

  •  An aspect ratio of 16:9, or the standard YouTube orientation.
  • Resolution of 1920×1080, or at least 1280×720.
  •  Recorded with the RGB color profile and a DPI of 300, although 72 might be acceptable.
  • Displaying only a single brand logo for your company.
  • Either 3GP, AVI, AAC, MP4, FLV, MOV, or MPEG-2 format. If you’ve done it in Apple ProRes, have them converted before you try to upload them.
