Just like any other e-commerce portal has its definite requirement of image listings, Sears also present you a set of requisites. Here we go:
- The URL used for image has to be public. It should not be password protected, be it hosted on your website or by third party hosting.
- Images that are used should be in either of the extensions such as .jpg or .gif. As you are viewing the image, you should be authorized to click at the right side tab and open the basic properties of the image.
- Regardless of the number of URLs that are tagged with an item, system will validate each one of them. The URLs are restricted to abide by the preset guidelines. It abandons usage of any special character while you are giving it a name. The characters that are restricted for usage are: # $ : ; , / @ % <space> ! [}.
- The URL that is considered as valid will have image extension such as .jpg, .png, .gif, etc. The minimum resolution allowed for the images is 1600×1600 whereas the recommended resolution is 2000 x 2000. If you wish to have the feature of zoom to get enabled on your picture, you will have to follow the guidelines and at least one side of the image must have the resolution of 1600 pixels. Once the image justifies all the requisites of the website, the feature of zoom will automatically get enabled. This is mandatory for all the newly listed images. For the already listed images that do not abide by these protocols, the zoom feature will automatically get disabled from their product. As far as display is concerned, the images at Sears are displayed in 185×185 pixels square.
- There is a variation from different niche categories at this platform. For tops and dresses, the requirements of the dimensions of images are different. The preferred display of the image comes with the rate of 167 x 270 pixels. For someone who doesn’t want to edit the image, such as crop it, you will have to use images of the garments that are centered vertically. It is suggested not to show the image horizontally with the content scribbled on either side of the product.
So, as we come to the end of the topic today, I would like to say that these are the necessary protocols that are to be followed if you wish to get associated with Sears.com.
