YouTube unveils enhanced Shopping features to aid creators

YouTube has unveiled its latest Shopping enhancements aimed at helping creators curate shoppable collections, optimize their shoppable videos, and efficiently monetize older content.

Under the new features, YouTube is introducing ‘Shopping Collections,’ enabling creators to assemble product assortments from favored brands for users to explore. Creators can tailor collections around various themes like everyday makeup routines or minimalist wardrobes. These collections will be accessible through a creator’s product list, Store tab, and video descriptions, with the capability initially available on the Studio app for mobile, and plans for a desktop rollout soon. Furthermore, YouTube is introducing an Affiliate Hub within its app, streamlining access to information on Shopping partners, competitive commission rates, and promotional codes, while also facilitating sample requests from top brands, with the intention of assisting creators in planning their next shoppable video.


In a bid to simplify content creation and management, YouTube is incorporating Fourthwall, a website builder facilitating shop construction, into its suite of integrated platforms. By enabling users to link their Fourthwall shop, YouTube aims to streamline content creation and management directly within YouTube Studio. This addition complements existing integrations with platforms like Shopify, Spreadshop, and Spring.

Expanding on last year’s introduction of bulk product tagging across video libraries based on descriptions, YouTube extends this capability to all Shopping creators. This enhancement is positioned to enable creators to garner increased revenue from older content that continues to attract substantial traffic.

In tandem with these updates, YouTube shared insights revealing that users consumed over 30 billion hours of shopping-related videos in 2023, reflecting a notable 25% surge in watch time for content, aiding shopping endeavors on the platform.
