How to Automate Shopify Product Videos

The process is straightforward. First, create a design for your videos. Then, link your product catalog through a spreadsheet, Zapier workflow, or API integration. The template will automatically be populated with product data such as images, prices, and features, generating a unique video for each Shopify product. Here's a quick breakdown of how it works.

Create a product video template

To automate Shopify product videos, you begin with a template that serves as the design for all your videos. Within this template, you can assign placeholder elements like text and media, which differ for each product video.

Whether you need promo videos, social media content, or video ads, there are many ready-made templates you can use. However, you can also create your own video designs using the template editor. The editor offers lots of customization options to match your brand's style and meet your specific needs.

Choose your automation method

Once you have your template set up, choose one of the following three automation methods:

  • The easiest way is to use a spreadsheet. This approach allows you to import your Shopify products along with the media assets and relevant information you wish to include in your videos. It's the perfect solution when you need to create many product videos all at once. For example, when preparing a month's worth of social media content in advance or launching a video ad campaign. Here is a quick 7-minute tutorial to get you started.
  • Another option is to use Zapier, a no-code platform that allows you to set up custom automated workflows with over 5000 apps, including Creatomate and Shopify. For example, you can automatically generate videos and share them on Facebook whenever a new product is added to your Shopify store. To learn how to create such a workflow, check out this 7-minute tutorial.
  • Alternatively, the most flexible way to create videos is using the API. By using programming languages such as Javascript, PHP, Ruby, or Python, you can auto-generate videos for your Shopify products. Here's a guide to getting started.
