How To: Amazon Image Optimisation

If you are actively selling on eBay marketplaces, you would have already made the necessary changes to your listing images to comply with eBay’s new image standards that took effect on the 30th October.

Coincidentally Amazon are currently informing sellers where they feel their images are non-compliant, and are giving just 14 days to make them compliant before taking punitive action, which may include terminating those listings. A large proportion of our subscribers are multi-channel online sellers that are listing on both eBay and Amazon – We trust that with the eBay changes, you took the opportunity to use optimised images across both platforms. Failure to comply could also result in suspension of your Amazon seller account.

For those of you who are not familiar with the new eBay image standards - Please read our extensive guide on Image Optimisation.

14 days isn't a great amount of time, especially for sellers with a larger quantity of stock items, why not outsource the work required?
