Add product images

Every detail page in the Amazon store requires at least one product image, and we recommend you to provide six images and one video. Good images makes it easy for customers to evaluate the product. Images should be clear, informative, and attractive. The first image on the product detail page is the "MAIN" image and is shown to customers in search. The MAIN image must show only the product for sale on a white background, and the product should fill the image frame. Additional images should show the product in use or in an environment, different angles, and different features. There are several ways to add a product image to Amazon:

  • For new products: Use the Add a Product tool to add an image when you create a new listing.
  • For existing products: Use the Manage Inventory tool to add an image to an existing listing. Or you can upload images in bulk using Upload Images.
  • If you use inventory files, specify the product image URL in the inventory file. For more information, refer Add product data to your inventory file.

It can take up to 24 hours after adding an image for it to appear on the website.

Note: Uploading an image does not guarantee that it will be displayed on the product detail page or search pages. Amazon uses algorithms to determine display images. Follow the guidelines provided in the Product image requirements to ensure your product images adhere Amazon file and content specifications.
