When we want to sell a product online, no matter how big or small product is, images are the best product definition to the customers. As the old proverb goes, “a picture’s worth 1,000 words”, images provide a quick idea about the product to the customers than a few paragraphs of text as well as the scale and the dimensions of the product.
Although having a good description is great, images can also boost up the quality of the listing. This is some kind of ‘a cherry on top’ scenario. In this article, we will briefly overview about product images along with ‘how to upload images on SellerCloud’.
Product Images Overview
Any changes made on the platform will simultaneously change on the respective websites after revising the item on Sellercloud. This way SellerCloud reduces the amount of work for the retailers.
SellerCloud classifies the uploaded images as below:
- Gallery Image: Certain websites such as Magneto, eBay use Gallery Image to display in the initial search results for a quick product overview.
- Description Image: Images that are selected as Description Image are used by websites to display as full size in the product description/details section/page.
- Supplemental Image: These images are optional, displayed when the product’s image gallery is expanded.
