How to configure your export

This article will show all the necessary steps to successfully upload your data feed to in order to publish your product videos there and import the Analytics data from YouTube back into your Productsup site.

Upload your feed to

To successfully export your data to the following steps are required:

1. Create a YouTube account

Go to and click on the top right on Sign In. Click on Create Account.

2. Add YouTube authentication in Productsup

Please see Add OAuth authentication to external systems for more information about that.


3. Add YouTube export and fill in all required information for the destination

The next step is to add YouTube as a channel. Open the Exports tab and click on Add Export in the top navigation.

Add the YouTube channel to your site and choose a custom name if needed.


Click on Setup for the YouTube export.


Click on Add Destination and choose the YouTube API from the list as the destination.


In the destination settings it is necessary to use the correct authentication for the YouTube Channel that you have created in the second step. You can select for which video category the video feed is used.


Important: When uploading the videos via the YouTube API a tag with the video ID is added to synchronize the YouTube ID with the Productsup internal video ID. This requires no setup from your side but happens automatically during the upload. With this method we make sure that videos get updated and are not uploaded again as duplicates. Productsup will only update or delete videos that have this tag.

Please make sure to never delete this tag within the YouTube interface.
