Amazon Seller Images
If you’re an Amazon Seller, you have to be aware of the specifics. One thing I ran into today was images for product variations. I had several variations. I found out that one group of images didn’t have a white background. So, what happened, the images did not show and by default, they showed other images.
I believe the effect it had was that people wouldn’t buy the product because it was the wrong image. Not sure how much advertising and sales I lost, but I won’t forget that one again. Just reposted and making sure all is well. Guidelines are below.
Here are some other guidelines I will use:
- Double check white background!
- Take picture of front and back
- Take real close up picture of the fabric if possible
- If have open options, put in a picture of the logo.
- Use real people and scenes for photos
- Use an action photo
- Upload a video (Amazon FBA)
- Use every single picture slot.
- Compare your photos to your competition and make their images look like crap
- Review your images after some time to make sure nothing changed.
- Make separate images for each variation.
Guidelines Per Amazon:
Listings that are missing a main image will not appear in search or browse until you fix the listing.
Choose images that are clear, information-rich, and attractive.
Images must meet the following requirements:
Products must fill at least 85% of the image. Images must show only the product that is for sale, with few or no props and with no logos, watermarks, or inset images. Images may only contain text that is a part of the product.
Main images must have a pure white background, must be a photo (not a drawing), and must not contain excluded accessories.
Images must be at least 1000 pixels on the longest side and at least 500 pixels on the shortest side to be zoom-able.
Images must not exceed 10000 pixels on the longest side.
JPEG is the preferred image format, but you also may use TIFF and GIF files.
