Spring’s integration into YouTube Shopping allows eligible creators to showcase their Spring products on YouTube. Fans can browse and buy your products across these surfaces on YouTube:

  • Your channel’s store
  • Product shelf below or next to your videos and live streams
  • Shopping button in your videos, Shorts, and live streams

In YouTube Studio, you can organize your products to display across these surfaces.

What data does Spring share with YouTube?

We share data about your Spring account, including the number of purchases, number of page visits, retail price of items sold, total revenue and profit, and canceled orders. We do not share any personally identifiable information with YouTube.

Why is my product available on Spring, but not on my Youtube channel

Products featured on Youtube must comply with YouTube’s Community Guidelines. If your design is listed on your Spring store but not on your Youtube channel it may have been removed due to content concerns. If you recently uploaded the design to your Spring store, it can take 2-3 business days to show up on YouTube. If you are having trouble getting new products to show, please contact creatorhelp@spri.ng.

Do you have any tips that will help me sell more?

Of course, make sure you build hype before launching your YouTube store to build excitement. When you launch your new products collection, make sure you’re wearing one of the products, this shows your pride in your products and encourages purchases.
