Videos in the product card can demonstrate your product, its features, application, and more. Add videos highlighting your product’s standout features to help customers better understand what you offer and the benefits of buying your product. This can significantly enhance brand awareness, loyalty, and engagement, ultimately boosting your sales on Joom.
Here are examples of good product videos:
Product video content recommendations
- Showcase your product in action. Avoid adding overly polished advertising videos, as they may be less useful and helpful.
- Upload vertical videos because the majority of Joom users make purchases through the Joom application.
- Record short videos because it can be challenging to maintain the customer’s attention for an extended period. Try to highlight your product’s features within the first few seconds.
- Upload an attractive thumbnail image for your video.
Product videos technical requirements
- Supported extensions: mov, avi, mp4, etc. (Almost all the video-file types are supported on Joom)
- Minimum size: 10 KB, maximum size: 1 GB;
- Video size ratio: 1:1, 4:3, 16:9;
- Length: not less than 3 sec;
- You can only have 1 video in each product card. The video should display the specific product, not to confuse or misinform the customers;
- Voice-over: not needed, as our customers speak different languages;

- Please choose the thumbnail pictures carefully because it’s the first thing your customers will see in your video. If you didn't choose thumbnail, the first screen of your video will be shown to the customers as a thumbnail. In this case, if your video starts with a white screen, the thumbnail of your product will be white.
