YouTube Expands Shopping
YouTube started asking creators to use its experimental software to tag and track products shown in their videos as part an effort by parent company Google to support online shopping. Google also is testing an integration with Shopify to sell products through YouTube, with the broader goal of turning its vast trove of video content into a digital catalog for viewers. Google’s other recent e-commerce initiatives include the introduction in June of an advertising format for YouTube that lets retailers turn their video ads into shoppable experiences.
With the Rise of TikTok…
