In this article, we will discuss how to add channel-specific images in SellerCloud both manually from SellerCloud dashboard and using CSV file in bulk
SellerCloud is seamlessly integrated with all of the leading marketplaces that enables eCommerce sellers to sell everywhere. Images play an important role in any catalog. SellerCloud also hosts the images of selling products to send those images while publishing the catalog as needed. SellerCloud channel-specific images feature allows to use different images for different market places. Amazon requires white or no background images but if you want to add images with background or lifestyle images for other market places you can do that using this feature. Using this feature, it is possible to send different images to Amazon, Sears, Walmart, Website, and Magento.
Note: To enable channel-specific product images, you need to load product images on the SellerCloud. If images are not already uploaded on SellerCloud, read the following article.
