Images are everything when it comes to online selling. If you are planning on placing your products on Google Shopping or Amazon, do not forget that these companies have strict requirements for the photographs uploaded to their platforms. They know how important it is to have quality shots of each product. If you are selling on Amazon or eBay, you will need to stick to their product image requirements for your listing to go up. The most important thing to note is that to satisfy the image requirements for both platforms, your images need to be more or less 1000px on the longest side at least. Let’s talk about it more in details below.
The product image requirements of eBay are quite easy to follow. They require images to be at least 500 pixels on the longest side. That being said, if you want to enable a zoom function, eBay requires images to be at least 800px on the longest side.
eBay does not allow borders or text on images. It allows watermarks, but they need to have opacity of no more than 50% and should not take up more than 5% of the frame. You can also use stock images on eBay if you are selling a brand-new item. However, make sure you have the right to use this. You must check the conditions of use on the original photos.
Amazon has strict product image requirements and your images will be rejected if the requirements are not followed. Note that the main photo must be of the product only, with the full product in the frame and taking up 85% or more of the canvas. The background must be pure white and the product needs to be in focus, professionally lit and with realistic colors.
When it comes to the image file itself, Amazon requires images to be at least 1000 pixels in either height or width. You can upload TIFF, JPEG, GIF or PNG files, but JPEGs are easiest to work with and are the default file type for photos. You need to be extra careful when naming your files; a file name needs to include the product’s ID and can only be made up of letters and numbers. The image will not upload if there are spaces, dashes or other characters in the file name. You also need to include the appropriate file extension (for example, .jpg or .png).
