How to link YouTube annotations to your product

We have partnered with YouTube (a privilege only a few other retailers are granted) so that you could insert your product URL directly into your video to promote it.

There are a few things you need to do before you can make that happen:

1. Make sure that your YouTube account is verified;

2. Keep in mind that you can only verify an account that is in good standing. You can check the status of your account here.

When you've verified the account:

1. Enable external annotations under Channel -> Status and features, that will allow you to link to your Sellfy product page directly. 

2. Click on "Video Manager" from the menu on the left;

3. Choose the video you want to add promotion to, click on the drop-down menu;

4. Choose "Cards";

5. In the page that opens, click the blue button "Add card";

6. Choose "Link" and click "Create";

7. Add your Sellfy product link and click "Next";

8. Then add Card title, Call to action and Teaser text; 

9. Click "Create card".

Note: Alternatively, you can use the "End screen" feature for your videos. More information on Youtube
