Understanding product images

Sellercloud can be set up to host images of your products, and send those images to websites while publishing your catalog as needed.

For example, if you upload an image into Sellercloud for product X, it will automatically be used when publishing product X to eBay, Sears, and Magento.

Product images can be classified as:

These images can be brought into Sellercloud in several ways:


Using the Image Manager

From the product detail page, you can browse to the product-specific Image Manager and upload images to the product. Upload a product into the Image Manager panel by clicking “View All” in the panel. In the Image Manager, upload the image file and complete the fields as desired.

Using ImageBridge

This lets you drag and drop images using Sellercloud’s own desktop tool, ImageBridge.

Importing images with a file upload
  1. Click Catalog > Tools > Import Product Info > Import Product Images.
  2. Download the template, enter the image URL into the FileName column, and use the other columns to set the image placement. Note: You can also choose an existing template, if available.
To prevent overwriting existing images with the same product image URL on the file, but are actually two different images (meaning, the image was replaced at the source, but you want to keep the old image on the product), enable the Client Setting Do not overwrite existing image in bulk upload.

Sample image URL – The image path must be publicly accessible for Sellercloud to “pull’ the image from the image path. A local PC or network is typically not public, so do not use those image paths. You can use an image-hosting solution such as Dropbox to store and organize your images, and then copy the image URL from Dropbox.

  1. Sample image URL from Dropbox (when ‘public folder’ is enabled on the Dropbox account): https://dl.dropbox.com/u//imagename.jpg
  2. Copy and paste the image path into your browser. If an image appears, the image path is acceptable.
  3. Return to Import Product Images > Click the File icon to find and upload the file > Click Import.

 

Pulling image URL via the Sellercloud API

You can pull the main image URL using the Sellercloud API service GetAbbreviatedProductInfo. More information can be found on our API documentation.
