Tips for Creating an Online Store

Ask FC: How do I Add a Video?

Q: How do I add a YouTube Video to my Welcome Page?

A: First of all.  I love videos!  I really think they bring a store alive.

Follow these steps:

1. Sign in and Upload a video to YouTube (you can use your Google Account to sign in)

NOTE: Skip step #1 if the video you want to use already exists on YouTube.  Feel free to check out other video sharing sites (like 5min, MetaCafe,, and Vimeo) for great video content.

2. Go to the video you just upload and copy the code next to “embed”
