Enhance Offers with Photos

Note: This feature is currently available for all category listings that are in the Used or Collectible condition, with the exception of: Entertainment Collectibles, Sports Collectibles, and Art.

Overview

Using photos to help describe the items you are selling provides customers with useful information, and is especially helpful for describing the condition of used and collectible items. You can upload up to 6 photos to display as part of each listing.

Where are the photos displayed?

The photos will be displayed on the offer listing page. A thumbnail of the main photo is displayed in the condition column of the offer listing page. When a customer clicks on the thumbnail, the full size photo will be displayed, along with thumbnails of the other photos of your item. For more information about the offer listing page, see Learn how to List a product.

Upload Photos

There are three ways to upload photos.

  1. Sell on Amazon

    All Sellers can upload photos through the Sell on Amazon page in the “Photos” section.

  2. Add a Product tool in Seller Central

    Sellers can use the Add a Product tool in Seller Central. To add additional photos of an item for a specific listing, on the “Offer” tab, go to the “Photos of your item” section.

    Note: The Images tab of the Add a Product tool is where you add a Product Image to your listing, which may be displayed on the Product Detail Page. For more information the Product Details Page and Product Images, see About Products and Listings.
