YouTube's Shopping Revolution: Discover, Browse, and Buy with Ease

YouTube has grown beyond just being a platform for entertainment; it’s now a place to shop too! Creators aren’t just relying on ads and subscriptions anymore; they’re diving into affiliate marketing big time.

Last year, YouTube gave creators a nifty new tool called product tags to boost their income. Now, they’re rolling out even more features to help creators make money. Aditya Dhanrajani from YouTube Shopping is excited to share these updates just in time for spring shopping.

So, what’s the scoop? Creators can now create “Shopping Collections,” which are like curated lists of cool stuff. You can easily browse these collections on YouTube, making it simple to find and buy things you love.

And the best part? Making these collections is a breeze! Creators can whip them up using the YouTube Studio app on their phones. Plus, there’s a new Affiliate Hub where they can find partners and commission rates, making it easier to make money.

But that’s not all! YouTube is teaming up with Fourthwall to make it easier for creators to set up their own online stores. With Fourthwall’s help, creators can sell their products right on YouTube.

So, keep an eye out for these Shopping Collections next time you’re watching your favorite YouTuber. You never know, you might discover your new favorite thing!
