This is a quick tutorial on How to add a Matterport Scan to a WordPress Website. At Full House Web Marketing, we have been performing real estate photography for brokers, agents, and builders in Las Vegas for over 3 years.
A few years ago we began doing Matterport scans for our real estate photography customers and commercial properties.
A Matterport scan adds a dynamic Las Vegas 3D Virtual Tour to many different platforms for potential buyers to visit a property. These Matterport house tours have been shown sell houses faster.
Because of the way we have our system set up, a scan will automatically post to Homes.com and Realtor.com.
When a scan is completed we provide the agent/broker with a branded and unbranded link that can easily be added to the MLS.
We also supply a bit of code called “embed code” – this code allows an agent/broker to add the Matterport Virtual Tour DIRECTLY onto their website. Unfortunately, this also means that the agent or broker will need to add this code onto their website, which can be scary, and if done improperly can blow up the website.
If Full House Web Marketing does the scan we can add the code to the website for you and it is a service we offer to anyone who has a scan and needs help. Just Contact Us, and we will hook it up.
BUT if you have a WordPress website, it’s pretty easy to do. This quick tutorial will show you the steps to add a Matterport 3D scan tour to your WordPress website.
A couple of quick notes. This tutorial assumes that you are using “out of the box” WordPress, and not a theme builder. We’ll post a tutorial for how you can do this with Elementor, Beaver Builder, Divi, etc. in the future. If you’re rocking the standard WordPress deploy, this tutorial is for you.

Check the Post Before Publishing
It’s always a good idea to preview before publishing to make sure that the embed code isn’t corrupted in any way. This image shows what you should be seeing.

If you want to add some descriptive text, just head back to the WordPress editor and type the text in a new block either above or below the embed code.
