Hello Michelle,

It's Camila from Ecwid Team. Thank you for your question!

It is possible to add a video to the main storefront page on the Ecwid site. You can it to the Storefront description or to the site header. I'll give you the step by step guide on how you can do it:

Add a video to the Storefront description

1) Go to Ecwid Control Panel > Catalog > Categories.

2) Select the "Storefront category".

3) Navigate to the horizontal bar menu under "Description" and click on the "Insert video" icon (see the screenshot

4) Add a link to the video on YouTube/ Vimeo or enter the HTML code of the video. 

5) Click "Save" in the top right corner.

After that, the video will appear on your storefront.

Please, check out the following article for more details about adding the video to the storefront:

Add a video to the site header

1) Go to Ecwid Control Panel > Website.

2) Click the "Edit" button (this is how you open the Ecwid site editor).

3) Select "Headline & Cover Image" in the menu with the site sections.

4) Click on the "Background options" (see the screenshot

5) Select the "Video" background type.

6) Paste the link to the video on YouTube.

7) Click "Save" at the top of the side menu (see the screenshot

After that, the video will be added to your site header.

You can choose one of the ways above to add your video to the Ecwid site.

I hope it helps.

Please, let me know if you have any questions.
