Channel-Specific Images

Click here for information on this function in Sellercloud's original interface.

The channel-specific images feature lets you send different images as the primary image or other
image per channel. This feature is available for images that have a background, but you want to
use them as your main description images.

Certain channels, such as Amazon, require images with a white background (or no background),
so you can use this feature to send a compliant image to Amazon and send your image with a
background to another channel.

This feature is available for the following channels:

  • Amazon
  • Sears
  • Walmart Marketplace
  • Website
  • Magento

  1. Enable the Client Setting Enable Channel Specific Product Images.
  2. Click the Image Manager. Load your images if they are not already there. Read how to

  4. Check the Primary box of the image you want to send as the Main Description Image.
  5. Check the Other Image or Thumbnail box to send images as supplemental.
  6. Update the product on the channel.
