Tagging your videos that you’ve imported from your video sources (like Instagram or TikTok) is a crucial step in automating your Tolstoys to your ecommerce store for everything including your PDPs, home page, collection pages and more.

We’ve made it easy to tag your products in your Tolstoy videos. It’s also incredibly important for the usability of your Tolstoys.


This step is crucial to ensure that your store stands out and presents videos in a unique and engaging way. By not completing this tagging step, Tolstoy won't be able to showcase the videos on your ecommerce store.

Tagging the videos from your Tolstoy library sets them in motion to be visible on the corresponding pages and is a stand-out feature of a shoppable video that engages your audience to purchase your products.

This article is for Tolstoy users who have already:

  • Connected to Shopify or their ecommerce store and

  • Loaded videos into their Tolstoy library using:

    • the import from Instagram option

    • the import from TikTok option or

    • the upload option that is available in the Tolstoy video library

We have made it easy to tag your videos on Tolstoy. Follow the steps below to get started.

Tagging individual videos

Once your Tolstoy video library loads, click on Products.

2. A box will appear with the products from your e-commerce store. You can search for a specific product to tag by typing it into the search bar at the top.

3. The products that match your search query will appear. Check the box to the left of the products that you want to tag in the video.

You can tag one or multiple products in each video. When you are finished tagging products for that video, click the Save button.

Tagging multiple videos

Tip: You may have products that appear in multiple videos. Tolstoy has a feature that allows you to tag multiple videos at once so you can save time automating your Tolstoys.

1. Start in your Tolstoy video library. Click the top left corner of all the videos that you want to tag for a product or products. Then, a black navigation bar will appear at the top of the screen. You will use this in the next step.

2. Click on the tag icon 🏷️ located in the black navigation bar at the top of the page.

3. Use the search bar at the top of the product box that appears. Select which product or products you want to tag in the videos.

You can even tag all of the items in your e-commerce store by clicking on the Select all option.

4. Once tagging is completed, click the Save button.

Tip: Tagging your products is important because Tolstoy’s Automated feature will only work after you’ve tagged your videos with your products.

You need to make sure that once you’ve added a new video to your Tolstoy library, you tag the actual product from your store so the video can be added to all of the appropriate pages of your e-commerce store as a Story or Carousel.
