Multivendor Marketplace for Shopify: In the app, every single seller that registers on the marketplace has its own seller profile on the frontend.
This is how the seller profile page looks like which includes a profile picture, logo & banner:
In the app, we give the option to set the seller banner as an image or as a video. So, in this blog, we are going to discuss how the admin or seller can update the seller profile page banner video.
Before looking into how to upload the banner video, note this important point:
To upload the banner video, we require the Youtube embed code for every video. So, let’s first see how we can generate a Youtube embed code for the video:

- Now, click on ‘Create a video post’ icon on the top right & then click on ‘Upload Video‘. Refer:
Upload the video which you want to set as the banner video and publish it.
