How to add video to product gallery in WooCommerce

Most buyers prefer to watch a video of the product (or service) they are interested in before they buy. It helps them to get a better understanding of the product and ensure that it is the right product they look for.

However, despite being one of the best eCommerce solutions, WooCommerce doesn’t have the feature to add product videos on the product page.

In WooCommerce, you can add more images of a product in addition to the featured product image and these images will be displayed as a small thumbnail gallery in the single product page.

It helps sellers to present different views of a product to give a better idea of the product to the buyers. However, it would have been great if WooCommerce allowed us to add videos to this gallery. Unfortunately, WooCommerce doesn’t have this feature in-built though it is one of the desired features. But don’t worry. I am going to show you how you can add videos to the product gallery in WooCommerce single product page like the following.

Install the plugin

Go to Plugins > Add new to open the WordPress plugins repository. Then search for WooCommerce Product Video Gallery using the search input field. The plugin that we look for is developed by NikHiL Gadhiya.

Find, install, and activate the plugin.

There is nothing much you need to do to configure the plugin.

Add a video to a product

Now, you can choose a product and open the Edit product page. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you can see a section with a title of ‘Product Video Url’. Inside that section, there is an input field. This is where you need to add the URL link of the video which you want to add to this product.

This is all you need to do. Now you can click on the Update button to save the changes. If you go to the front-end and open the product page, you can see the YouTube video among the thumbnail images.
