Upload and manage videos FAQ

How long does it take for the videos to appear on the detail page?

We will process and review all uploaded videos. Review typically takes less than a day, but it might take up to seven business days or more during peak periods.

Note: If your video has been in Live status for two days but hasn’t shown up on the detail page of your products yet, check the number of images present for your product. If there are more than six images, remove some to prioritize your video.
