What are the best e-commerce on-site videos for higher conversion rates?
The best product videos: how-to
900.care’s sustainable e- shop knows a thing or two about proper video campaigns. When visitors scroll through the page of their signature deodorant, they see a pop-up video showing how to recharge the deodorant case and how to apply it once it’s ready. This video is one of the best thanks to various reasons: a handsome model 😉 , a detailed how-to of the product, added subtitles, and a touch of humour at the end. 900.care = 10/10 videos!
Atashi Cellular is a Spanish beauty shop. When visitors land on the mobile page of their signature eye concealer, they see a pop-up video showing how to apply the product. This video is great not only thanks to its authenticity, but also the narrator who explains the application process step-by-step.
The combination of explainer + how-to video from Colorful Black’s magic cream is a definite example to follow. This video is also a good reminder that you don’t need ultra HD cameras and a professional crew to create engaging and converting on-site content.
When visitors land on the page of Endro Cosmetiques’ signature make-up remover, they see a pop-up video showing how to apply the product. This video is great because you also see the product in action - when the woman applies the product on her lips, you can see how efficient the product is in removing her lipstick.
Mood Swiss Rings’ custom-made jewellery are based on the buyer’s intent. Therefore, the video on this page shows how the process works. This type of video is a must-have for e-merchants that sell unique products. What Mood Swiss Rings does masterfully is the vantage point of the filming, the clever use of text, and the detailed explanation of how the rings work.
Instead of displaying a product video on the product page, Unbottled have done something smart with this how-to video of one of their shampoos. They display the video on a blog post page - in case someone lands on their content, there is an added incentive to buy their products. The video also works because it shows how to use their solid shampoo and how beautiful hair looks after using it.
The best product videos: product in action
When visitors scroll through Agile Work’s laptop expansion page, they see a pop-up video of… literally the product in action. The video expertly illustrated how the product works and why it’s so useful to have one. We might buy some as well to help manage all that multi-tasking 🤔
MTEverfit is a US-based fitness shop that sells workout bags which you can fill with sand. When visitors land on their homepage, they will see an excellent pop-up video. This video works because it shows all the aspects of the product: a display of its varied characteristics, such as color and material, as well as the bag actually being used by someone.
Mummix is simply the most delicious e-commerce store in Italy. We will actually be featuring 2 different types of videos that they display on their website - they’re that good! 🤤 When visitors land on their eco hazelnut spread page, mouths begin to salivate at the delicious color and texture of this product. We are 100% convinced that we’d finish that jar in an instant.

When visitors land on NZOBeauty’s page of this beautiful wig, they will see a pop-up video that explains how to style the wig in 6 different ways.

Go to almost any product page on Phillip Jones’ online shop, and you’ll be welcome with detailed pop-up videos of their beautiful jewellery. While their videos don’t necessarily show people wearing their jewels, the clean and soft presentation of their products put them in a very attractive light.
The best product videos: testimonials
When you land on Brightly Teeth’s homepage, you’ll be welcomed with a testimonial pop-up video that’s short and to the point. The lovely customer gives a quick shout-out to Brightly’s product. What’s more, her smile is definite proof of the product’s efficiency. The last great aspect about this video is that it’s repurposed - so no big effort whatsoever!
When visitors land on Leafy’s homepage, they will see a pop-up video that gives a short but relevant overview of their phone cases.

When you land on Sustainable Shine’s homepage, you’ll see a pop-up video that brings justice to what already is an amazing product. The video works not only thanks to the extensive review of this eco-toothbrush, but also thanks to combining 3 testimonials into 1 convincing video.
The best informative videos
If you’re ever in search of authentic, handmade furniture, Drugeot’s product pages will convince you of their process. Any informative, behind the scenes video content will do wonders to e-merchants’ conversion rates, because they facilitate customer trust and serve as proof to the shop’s claims to uniqueness. Drugeot goes even further and links a CTA to a page where visitors can investigate more if they’re curious. Make sure to follow their example!
Similar to Drugeot, Jeste’s doing a great job on their homepage with this pop-up video. Short and sweet, it shows the story of how their solid toothpaste is made, “How it’s made” style. No filters, just the truth.
If customers want to return their Lightning Outlet product and go to the returns page, they will see a pop-up video with the manager of returns giving a detailed explanation of the entire process. This is a great example of informative video as it makes visitors’ life easier - they don’t have to skim through content to find what they need.
By using pop-up videos, Menz-Menzy have solved a relevant problem for e-merchants in the clothing industry: sizing.

If this isn’t a certain conversion rate booster, we don’t know what is!
We return to Mummix, but this time with the great video displayed on their homepage. Since their brand is all about sustainability, the video gives an overview of how the products are packaged. By proving their shipping is aligned with their mission, Mummix increases the chance of visitors trusting the brand and placing an order.
Orallee’s video on custom surprise puzzles is another example of an informative video done right. If visitors land on the page and watch the video, they will find out exact details of how the puzzle works, the box it’ll come in, and the process of assembling it. This video not only informs, but reassures the buyer as well!
Peak Gems videos are some of the most informative in this list. They are also unique within the e-commerce space, acting as quick documentaries and stories about the gems.
