Why are listing pictures so important on Amazon?
Amazon encourages sellers to upload more than one qualified pictures for their listings. More pictures would help buyers know your products better, and push them make purchase decisions. The listing picture is the first appearance buyers have towards your products. If buyers show no interest in your picture and thus don't click your listing, no orders would be placed.
How do they affect my listing rankings?
Click rate and conversion rate are two important factors in Amazon's ranking system. If your listing gains more clicks and orders, it's more likely to obtain a higher ranking. Please bear in mind, high qualified pictures cannot guarantee high ranking, they would only be helpful when your click rate and conversion rate improved and noticed by Amazon.
What are the standards of high qualified pictures? First, make sure your pictures meet the minimum requirement of Amazon, you can add up to 8 additional picture to represent your products from all perspectives.
How to upgrade listings pictures on Amazon? Please do not use the same picture in main picture and additional picture sections. Compared with main picture, additional pictures are supplementary, and you can present more information of your products, such as details, other view, combinations etc.
