Once you’ve created your Vimeo OTT account, there are a few steps that need to be taken in order to publish your site and begin transacting. Before publishing, your site will not be viewable by anyone who is not a site member or admin. The list of the required steps, seen below, can be found by navigating to Settings > Getting Started.
The ability to publish your site and make it available to your audience will not be unlocked until each step of the checklist has been completed. These steps are:
- Upload videos - you will need to upload at least one video. Here's how.
- Create a product - you will need to create and publish at least one subscription (SVOD) or transactional (TVOD) product.
- Add billing information - you need to add a credit card to be used for any future charges such as transcode hours or fulfillment fees. How to add a card and what, if any, charges to expect are discussed here.
- Connect a bank account - you need to add payout information so that we can pay you. See our instructions for setting up, verifying, and updating your payout information.
Once all steps have been completed, you will see the option to publish your site.
