Arcadier allows the admin to create a visually engaging marketplace homepage using .mp4 links. Here is a step-by-step guide in adding a video slider in your marketplace.
Access your preferred website Mixkit, Coverr, Pexels etc. and look for a video.
a. This can usually be done by right-clicking on the video, then selecting “Open Video in New Tab” See the screenshot below for reference.
b. Upon opening the video in the new tab, copy the .mp4 link above. See the screenshot below for reference.
When you are in your admin portal, head to Customize > Homepage Layout to create your own unique marketplace landing image.
1. Click on the Edit button on the top right hand corner of the page.
2. Insert the MP4 Video Link.
3. To add another slider image, click on the "Add New Slider" button. You can add unlimited images but it is recommended that you insert maximum 4 images in your sliders.
Image sliders are also a great way for you to insert advertisements on your marketplace or monetise the space by offering to place the promotional material your sellers or third party advertisers on it at cost to them.
To use your own video footage, you can find a video hosting website where you can upload the video, and follow the above process. Please note that the video must be shared in public, so it can reflect on Arcadier’s website.
You can also allow merchants on your marketplace to add videos to their item listings. To find out how, read this article here.
