Connecting, Managing, and Disconnecting Stores on YouTube

YouTube's enhanced shopping features offer a straightforward process for eligible creators to link their stores - whether they use a supported retailer, a supported platform, or manage their own independent store. Here's how:

  • Connect your store:
    • Sign in to YouTube Studio.
    • Navigate to the "Earn" tab followed by the "Shopping" tab (only visible for eligible channels).
    • If you're new to YouTube Shopping features, select "Get Started". Otherwise, click "Connect new store" on the product card.
    • Follow the instructions provided to link your official store to your channel.
  • Manage your store:
    • Review the products within your store in the "Products" section of the Shopping tab.
    • Link additional stores as needed.
  • Disconnect your store:
    • Return to the Shopping tab in YouTube Studio.
    • Locate the connected store and click "More", then select "Remove store".

YouTube will review all products listed to ensure compliance with YouTube's policies and the Google Merchant Center policies.

Creators are responsible for ensuring their products adhere to relevant guidelines, including YouTube's monetization policies and Community Guidelines.
