Until recently, only Manufacturers selling wholesale to Amazon via Vendor Central could pay for an A+ Content Page and have the option of adding video to their product detail pages. Using a unique distribution agreement with Amazon to provide videos to their platform, AMZ Product Video has created a way to upload your video and ‘attach’ it to relevant products just above the product reviews under ‘Related Video Shorts’, enabling sellers to enhance their listings and increase conversions and sales.
While some products are fairly straightforward, many products have a story to tell, something that’s unique and makes them stand out. Other products are highly demonstrable and customers need to “see it in action” in order to fully understand it’s benefits. Whether you have a product commercial, how to video, un-boxing or even product comparison AMZ Product Video can get it uploaded it and attach it to your listings. This is an incredible opportunity for Seller Central sellers to capitalize on.
How it Works
1) You provide the video, metadata and content to AMZ Product Video (you can also purchase a video creation package).
2) They upload it to Amazon and use metadata to link the video to your products using it’s own ASIN and unique URL.
3) Videos then show up in the ‘Related Video Shorts’ section, just above the product reviews, where customers often look for more information.
4) You can link to the Video directly from Feedback Genius emails or invite users to “Scroll Down to View” your video from the product features or description. View an Example Product Feature and How To Video.
Note that while video Analytics are not yet available directly to you as a client, they can be requested intermittently from AMZ Product Video to track your video views.
